Visited on 4th July 2017. Cavernous underground venue in the basement of the old hop exchange. It’s got vaulted ceilings in the main room which houses the bar area and is laid out with bench seating like a trad German venue, also a couple of rooms for overspill. Beer range is decent enough with a good mix of German styles plus a house Helles made by West (Hell Katz). Prices are not bad, being before the evening rush it was lovely and quiet. Service was good. Not a bad spot to pick up a couple of German ticks

This is actually a little hidden gem. I have passed this many times without bein able to "see" it. Not any traditional entrance for a pub. And especially not in this area. Thank good for ratebeer. Kind of typical german bierstube. Solid german beer and german food. Can be ok sometimes when you have consumed to many british handpull ale :-)

We also visited here on Friday 3rd October 2014. We were with my friend and work colleague John and his friend Allan and hadn’t intended going here we just sort of stumbled in here following the Sheaf a door or two along whilst waiting for the secret bar to open at The Breakfast Club opposite. This place is essentially an underground interpretation of a German Bierkeller. The beer choice was a little limited but there were maybe 6-8 with probably more bottles to choose from also. The female staff wore Dirndl don’t recall male staff wearing Lederhosen. Beer choice was mainly Paulaner, it was fine, the bar was fine. A few brave souls were onto Steins of beer straight from work by the look of things. Probably an appropriate time to visit a German beer with Octoberfest having occurred during the week.

German bierkeller near London Bridge station. My second favourite place in the area, behind The Rake. Very solid range of German brews. Frequently changing guest tap. Beers available in steins! Good German food, and a nice vibe with all the long wooden tables.

Quite a decent German themed restaurant and beer hall style bar serving some decent German beers on tap! Food is nice but menu isn’t terribly extensive. I was pretty much brought in by the Paulaner Weiss and Hacker-Pschorr Weiss; two beers I haven’t had on draught yet, very much enjoyed the drink, bar and experience - definitely on the list of pubs to revisit!

German themed beer hall. Been a number of times with colleagues and it’s always bustling and jovial. A little tacky but hey, wuddya expect. OK food, good beer and a fun place regardless. Don’t come looking for value.

An authentic German pub-restaurant located just off Borough Market. Beers on tap were standard German fare although the Scherlanka Urbock on guest tap was in great conditioning and very rare to get hold of in central London so a worthy addition to the Rate Beer database. The food was premium but properly cooked. I had five different sausages which were fabulously cooked. A tad expensive but the quality was second to none. Compared to other German pubs in London this place is considerably better value and far more authentic. I loved the long tables and the photos on the walls of old breweries and the cellar-style atmosphere. Perfect venue for lagering ale in. The food menu looked well-chosen and authentic. There was a buzz of tourists and a good, positive atmosphere. The waitresses were extremely attentive and alert. Be careful with the menus though as there are main course options and starter ones which vary with price. They did have a great bottled beer range in the fridge with plenty of Augustiner and other German micros. For this reason and the quality of the food I shall go back again and try other authentic menu choices. A great German addition to London’s beer scene and very pleasing to know at least one chain can get this done correctly. Expensive but worth the costs. You pay for the quality.
