A beautiful old building with warped old polished floors, walls covered in illustrations and shelves full of books (Heinrich Böll was a Nobel Prize-winning liberal writer), could be a perfect old Kneipe/pub for an historic old town.
Weirdly, whoever has presumably relatively recently redesigned it, has chosen to cover the place in contemporary, and already outdated, coloured strip lighting (even the wooden stairwell) and recessed ceiling bulbs that just cheapen the place and take away the character.
On my visit service felt overly formal. Along with its swish modern bar, it basically feels like someone has approached this charming building, with its good food and Bier, and is running it as a pan-European Bistro-restaurant.
I’m glad we popped in, but in my opinion, let the building and the beer do the work. Less would certainly be more.
