Visited pub while in VB for world CX champs with a group of friends. Great selection of beer with a fantastic range of old beer cans and bottles on display including a good few from Scotland.

We found Cafe De Grendelpoort purely by accident on our first night in Valkenburg, and ended up going there on the two subsequent evenings as well. Fortunately we had a warm, sunny few days in Valkenburg and it was so nice to sit outside here, watching the world go by with a flight of good beers. Knowledgeable, friendly staff who can answer your questions and recommend beers that you'll enjoy. Yes, we'd definitely recommend this bar!

Hubby researched here before our visit to Valkenburg, so he was very happy to find Cafe De Grendelpoort! It was a very rainy day so we were unable to sit outside, such a shame as it is a lovely place to watch the world go by with a beer or three! The beer choice was extensive and the board showed what was available on that day. The bar has a lovely ecclectic feel to it, with what must be hundreds and hundreds of bottled beers all around the walls. Visited twice in our 4 day stay and would love to re-visit in the future!

This local tasting cafe, offers a nice range of beers, including their own brand. Next to the cafe they run a beershop where you can get a lot of great beers as well.

The tasting is a must have. Three of their own brand beers with goat cheese and crackers for € 6.50

A friend and I were searching for a bar whilst walking through the streets of Valkenburg. We immediately dismissed over crowded bars and those pumping out overloud Euro Pop, our search stopped however when we came across this gem. It looked like bars are meant to look like, lived in, with plenty of character and charm.

If you looking for something to eat then try one of the many restaurants along the street. If you are looking for run of the mill lager then keep walking. If you are looking for a great night out and like your beer, then this place is for you.

We were guided through our experience by Roel the bar manager, who recommended beers to try, something you wouldn't usually have experienced. The best of foreign ales from the Netherlands, USA, Spain and of course Estonia. If you love proper beer then this is the place for you. Hundred's of IPA's, craft beer with amazing tastes.

I love Belgium beer and if you like that you will be well catered for but what the bar did best was promote the local produce. The customer service was tailor made for the individual, really making sure the drinker was enjoying their tipple to the max whilst being educated. Good music to, at a low level so you can actually have a conversation. My visit changed my outlook on beer, Dutch beer in particular.
