Arrived in Ypres at 11pm but the bar, near our hotel, was still open and we got a well needed beer. Locals drink here, which is always a good sign.

Been coming to Ieper for 20 years, so I think ar least 200-250 times in this bar now. Still my favourite bar in Ieper for service, music etc. Great choice of beers, spirits. TV for crucial football games!

Just a short distance from the square with an exceptional selection of beers including one from the local micro brewery. If you like your beer do not miss this detination.
