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.

Reservations for dinner (evening) are only available for Friday and Saturday nights. We therefore only serve main dishes during lunch (every afternoon until 2.30 pm) from Wednesday to Sunday and on Friday and Saturday evenings. On all other moments you can taste dishes from our "snacks" section. Reservations for lunch are of course always recommended!
