Tintin & Hercule Poirot rank high on the list of famous Belgians, although beer buffs would probably add Brugs Wit, Floris Honey & Duchesse de Bourgogne to the list – not to mention Stella Artois. Belgian brews seem to heavily outnumber the celebrated sons of Flanders, & this senior branch of Belgo has most of them on show. Putting in a rare appearance outside of the Low Countries are Judas Blonde & Rodenbach Grand Cru, while biscuity Deus Brut des Flandres (referred to as ‘the Champagne of beers’) puts in an appearance at an eye-watering £32.95 for 750ml. Wines – if you must – include Chablis at £25. Mussels served a dozen ways, waterzooi, beef carbonnade, boar sausages & stoemp, followed by waffles offer an authentic taste of Ghent for hungry gents & ladies.
