This famous old Dutch pub was once a refuge for homesick Dutch sailors, then later became a rallying point for the Dutch Resistance during World War II. Dotted with retro beer ads and faux Dutch Masters, it now attracts punters savvy about their Benelux brews, with taps offering the likes of Hoegaarden, Lindeboom, Franziskaner, Früli and Leffe.
Of course, the main draw at De Hems is the healthy range of Benelux-sourced beers...Distinctive and eccentrically endearing, De Hems is a justified hit with London's Dutch contingent and beer-lovers in general.
De Hems Dutch Cafe Bar, London's only dutch bar! For an Amsterdam flavour and live sports, you cant beat it and its full of charm and character that will keep you coming back for more. De Hems Dutch Cafe Bar is a unique London pub in the heart of Soho and revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food with a warm and welcoming smile. De Hems takes its name from a Dutch Seaman who originally bought the pub back in 1890 and has strong links to the Dutch community in London.
