Must be one of the best places for eisbein. With 3 sizes to choose from and at a good value we each had one and couldn't come close to finishing! Good background music and great atmosphere.

Sitting outside in the gardens on a sunny day, drinking a few craft ales and eating a selection of good quality German sausage is great. Service is done with a smile and the portions are huge so took away enough for supper.
