Whilst looking for a meal in Aachen on a busy night (some kind of festival on!) we came across this place near the cathedral. We were concerned at first by the "fake-british" pub appearance, but decided to try it and were not disappointed. Nice beer, nice food (variety on the menu, pasta and pizza were both great).

I think we mistakenly took this place for a restaurant because it had a food menu. Unfortunately, the food didn't live up to the expectations of being called food. We had some fish and a snitzel. The fish was burned quite badly and drowned in sauce. The vegetables for the snitzel were months old probably, as the corn had a sour taste instead of the sweet normal one. The meat was bearable at best. Even the onion soup must have had half of the ingredients bathed in salt. Barely eatable. So if you go to this place, try to stick to some pizza and beer. It was quite popular with the local football fans and it had a decent choice of beers and warm stuff to drink. Just don't go for the food. The service was quite slow with only 2 people for the whole place.

Looking for a sit down meal while visiting the Aachen Christmas markets, we came across King's College situated close to the cathedral. Like most places at this time of the year it was packed and finding a table was difficult.

This mixture of Pub and restaurant seems to work really well, the atmosphere was lively and the service relatively quick. We both had variations on the local favouite , schnitzel. The veal was tender and the portions of a good size and when washed down with the local beer made for a really good lunch.

It also seems to be a gathering place for soccer fans as the crowd was getting bigger as the German matches were starting to be shown on the numerous large screens around the venue.

Reasonable prices good food and great atmosphere, we would be happy to return.
