Quality of Drinks

Wide range of German, particularly Bavarian beers and full compliment of Central European-slanted alternatives to beer.

Cluttered antiques aesthetic with wall space crammed with framed artwork, collected nik-naks and ephemera. Dusky and brooding atmosphere with candle light. Outdoor courtyard seating in thematically similar surroundings.

Very cosy, brooding, chatty, local life, more buzzy in the courtyard area on warm evenings.

Food, music, very occasional events.
Value For Money

Fair / Standard
A bolt from the blue. This place stands out not only among its Erfurt contemporaries but in Germany as a whole. The time and effort to assemble the fixtures, fittings and decor, and the skill in producing one of the most cosy, brooding and atmospheric pubs you’re likely to visit anywhere, is striking. This isn’t all about the decor either, by far. Along with a couple of unusual tap options, the bottle range is extensive, covering Franconia, Belgium, and craft options and a kitchen serving up typical pub food and a few regional specialities. There’s a very nice beer garden out of the back too which is buzzing on warm evenings. This is no pub-restaurant, it’s a place for socialising. Sublime, almost worth visiting Erfurt alone to find.
