The house of Craenenburg is situated on the corner of the Brugse Markt and the Sint-Amandstraat. The name refers to its known resident in 1305. The Boedt family welcomes you in this historic, warm setting for a bite to eat or a drink. They serve a Belgian-French cuisine à la carte.

In 1468, Margaret of York watched the knight’s games, held on the market square to celebrate her marriage to Charles the Bold, from here.

In 1488, the Archduke Maximilian of Austria was imprisoned here!

In 1905 Craenenburg was the hangout of the Bruges Smoking Club. In 1956, Craenenburg was given its current brick screen facade. The taproom was also given a so-called Flemish style with a wooden draught portal, beamed ceilings with the inscription "Craenenburg", copper chandeliers, panelling with embedded tiles, wall benches, a sculpted bar and stained-glass windows with iconographic medallions of the brewing process.
