Visited this place on a Saturday before going to watch the game between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern München. The place was large and with a friendly service. Located around 10 minutes walk from the Central Station in Dortmund. The Hövels Dortmunder Zwickelbier was a refreshing one. The food was tasty. Well worth a visit.

Visited the brewpub for the first time for a late little Mothers Day lunch. Service was quite nice (the manager/boss very attentive) but got its "unfriendly" moments when it came to paying the bill with EC card (just a note in the tone). Food was very tasty (the Hövels Senf / mustard delicious!) but the portions were quite tiny for their price. The beers were very nice and the interior cozy and welcoming. I will visit again for seasonals.

Visited on Sunday 28/04/13 around 1600.
Medium sized venue that was around 30% full on our arrival, Sunday luncheon parties were finishing off and leaving. Tiled and wooden floors, mix of low and high tables, brewereyana adoringing the walls and some interesting chandeliers made from beer bottles suspended from the ceiling.
Service was very prompt and efficient.
2 beers on tap on this visit, Hovels Maibock and Original from the house brewery.
Decent little venue around 5 mins walk from Wenkers and if you proceed to the HBF skirting the ring road you can also take in Bergmans kiosk (check opening hours).

Brewpub near the city-center. Atmosphere is great, but the service was on my visit not very friendly (more the opposite), and the prices are not very low either. The quality is good, the beers very tasty.
I’ll visit them for seasonal beers again, but nor for their service or prices...

I like the Hoevel’s dark beer and the restaurant is quite nice. I have been there after a BVB football match, so was very crowded. Will certainly come back when in town next time.

Hövels is one of my favourite german beers, therefore i always enjoy going to their brewpub! Food is good, traditional german, ambience and furnishings as well!

Very nice, although somewhat boring. Just one eber, and the English of the waitress apparently didn’t help to tell me there was another beer, but I asked.

Established in the late 80’s, this brewpub looks cozy, old-fashioned: typical german....... Even though it is not clear, if they still brew their beers on the premises, it is a quite nice place for a break.

Visited this brewpub with Dortmunder on a very quiet friday afternoon. Looked old-fashioned indeed, but very nice. Well served beers of good quality. The barlady was, as she should be, very knowledgable about the beers served.
