The next day our friends go out for a drive, looking for castles. We stay in bed, get up, have breakfast then go back to bed again. There’s plenty of time to go out and about later.
We do eventually head out for walk and to survey the sights but rather predictably we end up in a bar. This one’s a good one, Café Rose Red which actually has red roses aplenty suspended from the ceiling. We have a couple of beers before heading back to the hotel and then later heading out to meet our friends.
After having a few false starts finding a decent bar we take the safe option and end up back at Café Rose Red. Like we did in Brussels we feast on plates of meat and cheese alongside the excellent beers. I think we’ve settled in for the night but our friend wants the Flemish Stew he didn't opt for last night. So we find somewhere that does stew and the rest of us have waffles alongside a Leffe Brune.
The search for another bar takes us to T’Brugsch Bieratelier which coincidentally seems to be right near our hotel. The bar is a rarity in Bruges in that it only does beers on tap and has twelve of them. Suits me, always prefer draught to bottled even if it is only keg.
