Village Project (formerly known as the Belgian Beer Cafe)Beer garden brimming with Belgian delights
Located in the grounds of the former Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind (RVIB), the Belgian Beer Cafe, has been transformed into the Village Project. The name change brings with it an urban cultural community hub of an evolving range of quality and innovative food and drink.
Eat: Inside, the Village Brasserie boasts an impressive menu designed to share. Renowned for moule frites, steamed mussel pot, frites and mayonnaise, along with liege waffles (Belgian style), you could easily be mistaken for being in little Brussels.
Outside, beer food awaits. I note classic frites and mayonnaise are a crowd favourite.

Drink: In the fridge, cellar and on tap, a vast selection of domestic and international beers and wines were available. We enjoyed Belgian's Fruli strawberry beer. If you like the Cantillon Kriek (coming soon to the Village Project), this berry cousin is equally as delicious (if not better).
