Found this pub by accident but very glad we did! Wide choice of beers and most excellent bar man. We enjoyed the craik and despite being in fancy dress were allowed to stay. Exemption for Santa and his elves perhaps

Wow what a selection and great ambiance. Danger lurks though...asked for barman recommended draft and got Christmas special ...superb but checked list and was 8.2%! Closer examination showed nothing less than 6%....no session beers here but great drinking hole.

We stopped in while celebrating my 50th birthday in Amsterdam. We had a nice time here, received friendly service, and enjoyed trading age jokes back and forth with our bartender, who looked very young. Excellent beer selection and prices. I would visit here again.

historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
