Beer flavored with salt and coriander? Nooo! Well, actually YESSSS! You really have to taste it to believe just how good it is. It’s delightfully light and not at all sweet. My only regret was that we were fog tired and short of cash or we’d have stayed for one (or five) more.

We didn’t eat there, just drinks. We sat outside in the courtyard but the inside seating looked quite comfy.

Having enjoyed a fantastic Hogmanay evening it was our first evening visit in summer time. Away from the weekend we didn’t have to book (but it is advisable). The evening was lovely and the beer Garten was buzzing with lots of folk enjoying the experience. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent, plentiful and very reasonably priced. A great way to get the flavour of Germany relaxing. The beer brewed on the premises was excellent. Looking forward to our next visit.

Popped in for a quick lunch. The salmon salad was excellent. Washed down with one their own well crafted beers which are brewed on site. Really nice beer garden and interesting interior. Would definitely return.

The spacious restaurant, located in the old Lepzig-Dresden Railway Station was a very acceptable lunch option. It is just a few stops by tram or S-Bahn for the bcentre.

The big indoor area around the bar is conceived as a brewery, complete with big copper vessels. Elsewhere, the Railway heritage is celebrated. We chose to eat in the conservatory aisle, looking out on the Beer Garden, but avoiding the unfortunate local preference for puffing on cigarettes whislt eating, gifting other diners with their personal poisons. A unpeasantly unhygenic and antisocial habit.

The helpful staff took our order, providing an English menu when requested. I chose “Strammer Preusse” - Pulled Pork with potato bread, eggs sauerkraut and salad, whilst my partner selected Herring fillet with potatoes and salad. For drinks I chose the Leipziger Gose (a salty beer!). Fritz-cola was the preferred non-alcoholic choice. The VERY substantial meals arribed in good time and wewere VERY full by the time we had finished. My partner's hering was perhaps overdosed with sour cream, whilst my choice could have provided more mustard sauce with the pulled pork.
Overall, a good introduction to German 'pub' food!
