The only Soester brewery When the Peace of Westphalia riders after the 30 year war between Munster and Osnabruck were traveling, as the half-timbered building of Renaissance beamed even from a quiet comfort. That has not changed in the last 400 years. From the old bakery next to the church has become a brewery, where the life between old oak beams and copper copper kettles shows at its best: fresh home-brewed beer, grandma's bed, creaky Wooden floorboards and a lot of nice people. Where do you feel most comfortable? The cozy bar on the ground floor, where the delicious aroma of hops and malt in the air? Or the creaking stairs to dining groups from the good old days, each of which is different? Perhaps in the light-flooded winter garden with space for larger groups or, weather permitting on a secluded spot outdoors? Only when you have all tried once, you will know it - but in a sophisticated atmosphere, with many antiques and changing little extras you will discover something new anyway.

Fantastic food and drink

Excellent service, great food (generous portions too) and in house beer is beautiful. Make sure you book though, otherwise you may not get a table as it's very popular. A must whenever we visit Soest.

"Home Sweet Home" is the best description of what you feel at Brauhaus Zwiebel. Delicious German soul-food, big portions, friendly and well trained staff. The home made Maibock beer is amazing!

What a great find - set in a beautiful building this was a buzzy, busy restaurant. Great food, great staff, so good we went twice! If you're looking for something authentic with delicious, hearty food (the portions are enormous) and with the benefit of an on-site brewery this is the place to go. And always a must - filled with... More

We were visiting some family that lives right across the street from this place,it did not look like much,but as soon as the 6 of us sat down out in the beer garden I knew it wasn't the typical german pub. I think 4 of us had the small size schnitzels with different toppings and one had the matjes. We... More

We were looking for some good German food after a couple of poor meals elsewhere. We were not disappointed here. All the waiting staff were friendly, helpful and spoke some English. Gudrun our waitress guided us through the menu on local dishes and of course the on site brewed beers. It was a really great meal to end a two... More

Of all the restaurants we went to in Germany I think this was one of my favourites. The service was good and our server had a great sense of humour and was comfortable talking English. The regular patrons were friendly. And the food was good. I would definitely recommend everyone visiting Soest comes here.

Brauhaus Zwiebel is the obvious place to dine in Soest, a cathedral town with a restored city center in rural Westphalia. The restaurant is housed in a half-timbered building with a dark-wooden candle-lit interior. The menu features Schnitzels and other traditional German fare. The food, in keeping with tradition, is hearty and satisfying—fabulous if you’re hungry (we were very hungry)—if... More

We had a kind of family dinner with my parents here. It was really fabulous! We ordered salads as well as main dishes but the portions were so huge that we had to ask to take away the remaining food because we were able to eat only a half of them. And how delicious it was! Fantastic! Beer from the... More
