This has got to be the weirdest pub in Bromley, I'm not sure what market this caters for. It's hidden away like a guilty secret, and if you do find it make sure you've got some serious wedge in your pocket. It's ridiculously expensive.

My wife and I had lunch there the other day after a fairly long gap. It's not bad, in terms both of selection and price, and the food was "hearty", as one would expect from a Belgian-themed establishment. But I do wish they would decide whether they are a pub or a restaurant. If they want to run both they really ought to sort out the tiny bar and schoolroom seating and benches at the boozer end.

The beer is expensive but where else can you get even a reasonable selection of Belgian beers (well, The Dog and Bell in Deptford but that's some way away)? Nice to enjoy a Kwak in an authentic glass.

Very nice when the sun's out, you used to be able to sit on the green outside and drink but last time i was here some pencil-kneck from the council tried moving me on. beer is very nice, but outragously expensive, had some mussels here once, they where also good. 7 1/2

I like Leffe Blond but at 4.75 a pint this place is, as others have said, a bit pricey.

Pretty good for Bromley with an acceptable view of the green 'park' area. mostly geared up to be a food place with an interesting menu, specials and a really good choice of continental beers. Strangely full of blokes pushing prams in the late afternoon which can result in screaming kids - very odd and not something you'd usually associate with a place like this. Service is fast and pleasant and the only thing that lets it down are the poorly-maintained bogs which need a good clean and locks on the doors etc - if it's a food place then you should really be providing a better class of khazi.

This place is okay but its not a pub - including it should mean that places like the Hop Cellar in Southwark Street should be included. However, that's not the point of the post. The place is okay, the service is okay (reasonably quick when not busy, but if you want fast well get a Big Mac!), the wine is okay. But don't have the sausages - always over cooked - or the fish and chips which will be dry and meagre (the fish) and horrible and plentiful (the chips).

Nice place, a bit pricey for an evening drinking! - 9 Sep 2006 15:52
Something a little different in Bromley offering vast selection of Belgian Beers, Wines Etc. Quite pricey for the area and attracts a different crowd.
Clean and friendly staff

Not a bad place if you want something different from Bromley away from the kids in the Walkabout. The beer is different but pricey. Best to have a couple of Leffe and Moules & Frites from the restaurant. Great in the summer.

It's not really a bar, it's more of a Belgian restaurant, but you can get a continental style beer or flavoured lager for premium prices. Staff are a little cold, but the environment is pleasant and the summer park drinking is to be recommended.

This is a good bar to go to if you want something a little different in Bromley. A good selection of Belgian beers with Leffe, a kriek and another beer on draught and a couple of dozen bottles. The food includes a number of Belgian favourites ("foreign" food in a Belgian bar - what a shocker - thanks for the laugh Peter!). The main drawback in the winter is it's far too smoky inside. The main drawback in the summer is the groups of loud, drunk, geezers it attracts and the mindless shouted "conversation" everyone has to endure as a result. Worth a visit nonetheless.

The prices are ridiculous. The food is mainly foreign and again overpriced. This is not what i want from a pub.

3 pints and your out. Pricey but relaxing of a summer.

A fantastic quiet, mature and unique place to eat and drink. Especially in the summer when you can get your drinks served in a plastic cup and sit in the park, that coupled with the excellent food and wide array of Belgian beers makes this one of my favourite places to drink...

If it wasn't for the price.
