Antwerp's only Scottish pub

Welcome to Café Highlander

Elaine and George like to welcome you to this new venture as from 27th of February 2014 in the 'Stadswaag'.

We have run the pub in the 'Pieter Van Hobokenstraat' for the last 26 year (1988 - 2014)
with hard work, a lot of fun and a great clientele.

It was with great pleasure we announced the opening of the new Highlander situated
in a very old historical protected city view.

Beer of the month

Filou beer

Filou 8,5.0%

Filou is a rascal that you take lightly at your peril. Introduced in 2014, this young member of the Van Honsebrouck family packs a grown up punch. Filou will surprise you with its naughty character, but is calling it a rascal or a scamp a little disrespectful? In fact, the name is a nod and a wink to both the drinker and the beer: Filou goes down so easily that you’ll be asking for a refill before long. What about the drinker? Is he or she a rascal who can’t resist Filou’s temptations? Not many people will leave it at just the one glass, which poses the question: who is the biggest filou of the two? Filou is brewed with Belgian and Czech aromatic hops, pilsner malt and is refermented in the bottle. Another one for the road…?
