The food was good, but it wasn't very authantic german food. Where was the potato salad?

The service wasnt very good. There were 4 different parties crammed into one corner, there was no spacing between them. Not good for covid guidelines

The whole feel of the place was abit bland.

Our server was lovely and attentive to our needs. Food was pretty good with crispy knuckle and the pork belly was melt in your mouth! Desserts were amazing... we tried 4 different types and our fave was the citrus tart! Recommend!

A great night in a comfortable casual setting. Food was delivered quick and serving size was generous. Schnitzels needed to come with gravy or a horseradish cream as they were a tad dry on their own. Sad there wasn’t any Lowenbrau but enjoyed the 4 Pines Kolsh (German?) alternative. Didn’t like how meals were served with coleslaw as it isn’t very “German”.
Overall would go again with lower expectations.

Great staff, the best german food you'll find outside of germany, genuine german beers on top. Style of the place could use moderisation but if you want the food and want to feel like your in a old quaint bavarian reastuant you will not be dissapointed!

Staff were great, the food was excellent, only complaint would be is that there was a big sign out the front saying kids eat free thinking that they would just be taken off the bill I paid without thinking of checking. It took me until I got back home to realise I was charged. I’m fine with paying for them as it is a restaurant but don’t advertise it and then don’t do it. And yes we did order full price adult meals.
