One of the places that we had as a must in our list, but got a bit dissapointed with . Large hall, in the basement of a pretty old huge barn. Their beers are just ok, as well as the food. Service was a bit cold. Place lacks a bit more of ambiance.
Visited mid afternoon Tuesday 14.10.14. Cavernous cellar bar. It was a slightly strange experience to see old British pub signs hanging from the ceiling including that from the now closed Oakdale Arms, Haringey, N4, a pub I occasionally frequented for their beer festivals. Service was prompt. Beer (Schwarze) for me at any rate was mediocre.
Food is nice, although a bit overpriced for such a big place. Staff doesnt care about you and ignores you. Beer is brewed there, but is not really interesting. Not really sure why it is so popular, it is a usual "tourist trap", avoid it if you can.
Visited August 2013. I sat outside under the marquee as the weather was stupidly hot, so never saw the interior. Service okay. Not much to look at on the pedestrianized street. The Blonde was the typical cloudy mucky German brewpub fare while the Schwarze was much better.

I had two visits here in April 2013, and it was the first German brewpub I went to. A crowded basement keller. Warm and German food like sausage and pork shoulder which I soon learned was standard fare for a great number of German restaurants.
