Bar Bernard

Look around you, taste our beers and enjoy yourself in splendid surroundings

In the summer of 2018 we opened our – there is only one word for it – stunning - rooftop bar to visitors and beer lovers from around the world. Bar Bernard is the finishing point for our brewery tours and it is where our beer tastings take place. Needless to say, we welcome everybody with open arms.

It goes without saying that our St. Bernardus beers take pride of place at Bar Bernard. What’s more, we have created most of our recipes around them. We embrace the principle of food pairing, where we re-enforce the flavour of the dish by pairing it with one of our beers.

Enjoying a beer in a relaxed environment also brings people together. No surprise then that we are keen on food sharing: generous portions of food you like to share, tailor-made for you and your guests.

Use the link below to find out what’s on the menu. If you want to make a reservation, also click below and book your table quickly and easily.

Simply stunning 360° views

Bar Bernard seats approx. 120 guests inside and 180 people on its terrace, where you are spoilt with extensive, breath-taking views of the countryside around Watou.

From Wednesday to Sunday you receive a warm welcome at Bar Bernard. Take your pick from the beers made by St. Bernardus, Kazematten and Weihenstephan. Of course, we also offer a wide range of non-alcoholic beverages (soft drinks and hot drinks) as well as wines and spirits.

Our Sunday schedule is a little bit different. As Sunday afternoons and evenings tend to be very popular, we do not take reservations. From 14:30 onwards we only serve platters, side dishes and desserts. This does not apply to Sunday lunch: just like the rest of the week, you can book a table and choose from our main menu and children’s menu.

Bar Bernard


As we are great fans of food sharing we have created a range of boards with something for everyone to enjoy. These come in various shapes and sizes.

So, it doesn’t matter if there’s only two or four of you or if you are part of a larger group of 10 or even 20 guests. A board will be just what you are looking for.

You can also add one or more side dishes to complement your board.

On Sundays (from 14h30 onwards) we only serve boards, side dishes and desserts.


  • If your group includes 15 guests or less, you can make your booking online.
