Nice building - large open plan area. Beers were all unknown german brews (something Hell) served in large tankards (probably still a pint) for £5 a pop.

Only in London.

As you would expect of a German pub, the beer is excellent. I like the food but I'm hardly a connoisseur. Last visit I enjoyed a decent bratwurst. The crowd seems to vary - I have been in there when it was full of German ex-pats and other times, even on a Saturday night, when it is half full and clearly mainly Brits. Obviously the atmosphere is better when it's crowded so if you have a dull night in there, might be worth trying another time.
I've only seen FC St Pauli games in there and that is worth a visit on it's own if you aren't familiar with this radical German club and it's anti-fascist fans.

Will try to be positive about this place but will struggle!
If you like loud German football blasted at you at a horrific unaceptable decibel level and some decent German beer, then fair enough, this is a good place. Came here thinking it would be original but was severly disappointed. The bar staff are surly and faintly hopeless- the bar maid I spoke to cocked up my order for food and then my order for drink. I was given a desert instead of a main course which on reflection might have improved the over priced excuse for schnitzel I was served. The ambience of this warehouse is dreadful- a German pub with no Germans- but a strange assortment of drunk Brits wearing Bayern Munich shirts. Will need to visit the ENT unit of my local hospital to cure the ear bleed of German commentary- I would avoid.

Excellent German pub hidden inside a traditional London corner-pub exterior. Nice decor and atmosphere. The range of draught German beers is very good and supplemented by several decent bottled options. The food is delicious, the Munich Schnitzel in particular is recommended. Bar staff are friendly and keep waiting times down to managable levels even when it's busy.
The best place in London to watch the Bundesliga or 2.Bundesliga on big screens and some games (particularly those featuring FC St.Pauli) attract a fair size crowd.
Draught beers are normally £4.50 a pint, and Schnitzels anywhere between £10-£16, but they have a Happy Hour on Monday Nights where pints are a mere £3.50 and all Schnitzels are £7.95. However, beware that they shut early on a Monday although it's probably the best day to check this place out if you aren't 100% sure it's your cup of tea. If you are a German beer and cuisine enthusiast though( which includes me), any time is a good time to come here!

If you like German beer and food then this is a good place to go, run by German bar staff this is not a "german theme bar" but simply a pub that has a large selection of good beer on tap and a few on bottle.

Reasonably priced food and pints of beer around the £4.50 mark, I drank an "alt" beer in bottles for £4.20.

Very pleasant and efficient bar staff, the pub shows Bundesliga football on a big screen.
