Inside the estaminet, there's a homely
welcoming atmosphere: the cosy bar room is festooned with
pictures, ornaments and by-gones. Whilst tasting local
beers, you can play traditional Flemish pub games, which
extend outside in the summer!
The menu offers over 70 locally-brewed
beers - some very strong indeed! - as well as the region's
ciders, and lemonades brewed from various fruits. During the
evening there might be singing and music. You can eat a
simple "pub meal" made from local produce, like black
pudding with stewed apples and chips.
When you leave in the early hours, you're
struck by the stunning view over the Flanders plain - 'T
Kasteelhof in Cassel is next to the windmill on top of Mont
Cassel - 176 metres high.
There's lots of others!
A full list of all the authentic Flemish estaminets is
available from Tourist Offices in the area. From the 1st of
June, there's an annual festival of traditional Flemish
events, including tastings, guided tours, and many chances
to join in playing traditional games.
