Reasons for trip

My wife and I visited this pub last Tuesday with our daughter and son-in-law or a family celebration. It serves a wide variety of Belgian beers, both on draught and bottled varieties and is in an interesting alleyway (Jerusalem Passage) off St. John’s Square in Clerkenwell.

The food is Belgian-themed as well and we each enjoyed different items for our main courses, although the menu is fairly restricted. The beers were not cheap, typically just under £4 per half pint but that has to be taken in the context of them being imported and (mostly) of quite high strength – something like double that of traditional British ales.

The service was friendly and attentive but we did not feel pressurised to finish to free up the table for others. I would recommend booking a table as, even on a Tuesday evening, the place was full, with the customary London drinkers spilling out into the alley outside.
The total cost for four main courses, two desserts (the main courses were quite filling) and ten alcoholic drinks between us, including the suggested service charge was £128.
