This is the first call on a five day tour of Belgium seeking to try as wide a range as possible of the ‘Abbey’ beers produced for existing and former Belgian abbeys. The range of five St Idesbald beers are served here in crockery mugs – I list just the two I tried.

The pub is found in Koksijde, Belgium, 8670.

Ten Duinen Abbey is a ruined Cistercian Abbey on the outskirts of Koksijde, near to the Belgian coast. The grounds are open to the public and today are mostly used for educational purposes. The complex includes this cosy little ‘estaminet’-type cafe which has a small, single-roomed bar area. An extensive outside seating area is also available on a patio to the front. This bar is the acknowledged ‘Tap’ for the St Idesbald range of abbey beers produced for the ruined abbey by the Huyghe Brewery.

We have visited this pub once, seen 2 different beers and tried both.
