Lambeth usually a bit of a rough place but the bar is set in a good area. Several german beers on tap which is offering a good change for all the other usual generic stuff in London, though also here it is the rather usual to be expected german beer (Krombacher, Paulaner, etc.). Service was at first slow but picked up fast during the stay. Food looked ok also the classic german stuff like currywurst. Prices were normal Londonian level which is a bit steep. Overall a good pub and definitely a place for some St.Pauli fans and other german football enthusiasts. Good fun.

German pub not far from Vauxhaul. Serves a large range of German beers (over a dozen on draught), but manages to omit a lot of the better Bavarian brews. A nice atmosphere and the leiberkase was good. I’d go again if they got hold of some Andechs, Ayinger and Augustiner. As it is they did at least have some Schlenkerla.

Bustling pub on the south side of the river. Two widescreen TVs showing a German football match, and an English match (with Chelsea) on each side of a large U-shaped bar. Extensive range of German beers on tap and bottles, but mostly from well known breweries. No Oktoberbiers – the person taking our orders had not even heard about Oktoberfestbiers – very strange for a German pub. However, the typical German food was excellent, and it is easy to recommend their Zeitgeist Salad that should be paired with a Rauchbier (Sunday afternoon, 03.10.2010).
