Quality of Drinks

Top quality Franconian lagers from the wooden barrel, with everything else an afterthought.

A peculiarly unprepossessing entrance with wooden door leads to a conservatory type area which then leads into the pub itself. You’ll find the taproom easily the most atmospheric with wooden barrels niches and dark wooden, hugely atmospheric. The side rooms are typical and fairly by-the-numbers German beer hall in appears, although at least intimate in size.

Head to the taproom for the core atmosphere of the place where the history and ageing of the wood, murmur of conversation and back and forth of staff make it feel like the place to be, hunkered down protected by the layers of pub around you.

Quasi-outdoor space, food.
Value For Money

OK for the area.
While the venue undoubtedly has mixed reviews, our site focuses squarely on whether the bar has good beer, good decor, good atmosphere, fair value and any additional amenities. This really does, but be sure to grab a seat in the core of the pub by the barrels to get the most out of it. The beer is magnificent and sitting back to recall the experience rouses a wistful longing to return.
