Bavarian Beerhouse, EC1V 2QH

  • 190 City Road, EC1V 2QH (streetmap)

The Bavarian Beerhouse was a German bar on City Road. It closed down for good in July 2018. According to the April/May 2019 London Drinker, this was due to redevelopment of the building it was housed in.

The information below is retained for historical purposes.

Situated in a large cellar on City Road, the Bavarian Beerhouse provides a relatively authentic German experience. They offer several German beers, as well as German food.

The Wurstplattes (sausage platters; £9.50 and £11.50) are good but not as large as they used to be. The pork shank (£13.50) is very large and even defeated bob. (Although I think with more gravy I might have finished it --bob).

The Erdinger Dunkel (£6.90 for a litre) was very drinkable.

On a Saturday afternoon visit it was full of Germans watching football on a large screen. This led to slightly slow (but still quite friendly) service. On a later visit on a Thursday night it was also quite busy, but everyone was at tables so it was less hectic.

If going as a large group there will be lots of faff with setting up individual tabs which can take some of the joy out of it.
