Got a warm welcome and was amble to try a couple of the beers before commits to one, this one was a grapefruit tasting beer which was unusual and extremely good. Had never had the Flammkuchen before which is a bit like pizza but without the cheese and is very thin. Really enjoyed this with a fresh green salad, if you are inNijmegen it’s worth the walk to visit here.

The place, one of the oldest cafe in town and in the country is really well conserved by the owner. You can feel a really confortable atmosphere. Our host was really gentle and there is a large choice of beers, the cheese plater is really enjoyable. I recommend this place, for me a staple of your stay in Nijmegen, don't miss it!

This old pub had a really good selection of beers and an interesting menu. The bar staff were friendly and good at recommending beers that we would enjoy. The beer we had was very good.

The food was good - and interesting. As well as other regular foods, they also serve dried insects - we had a bowl of mealworms and a bowl of crickets. These were more bar-snacks than something that would fill you up, but were an interesting experience to have.

The bar itself is very old and the inside is decorated appropriately. It is well-worth visiting.

That has been the first pub I went to when I first moved to Nijmegen since I had heard it was the oldest one in the whole country, and I must admit that even if it is not too big, the beers and the food are really good. Plus, the waiters are really kind and welcoming. Totally recommended.
