Although the waitress was pleasant and welcoming the food was bland. Sounds a tad picky but it was also served on cold plates. The best thing was the roaring fire!

The atmosphere was great, typical ski lodge with open fire with old skis above. Food was great and with our party of 10, not one scrap of food was left on any plate. Thanks for making Mum's day.

Brilliant Bavarian menu, fills you stomach with delicious flavours and great spot to take the younger children as there is a kiddies menu, lounge area with games and pool table to keep them busy while we enjoyed the german beers on tap1

A warm atmosphere created by a log fire on a very chilly night in Methven, plus a warm welcome by the staff. The food was absolutely delicious and a very big serve (we couldn't finish so took the balance home) so be wary small eaters.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and excellect large schnitzels and HB steins. I love the posters of Germany's Garmish ski fields and the old skis above the wood fire. This is the exact atmosphere and place you want after a day on the ski slopes.
