We were looking for a German Pub and walked into a genuine German Pub that brews its own signature dark beer, "Schlüssel Altbier" which is served up in 200 ml glasses without ordering it so you have to be quick to say no if you don't want it! That said if you are a beer drinker you must give it... More

Cold and always wanted to go into this place so thought that I'd start the evening with a hot chocolate. Not a problem, I thought so I ordered a hot chocolate and as an afterthought said 'with whipped cream'...well you'd think I'd sent the waitress to jump in the Rhine. She started shouting 'WE'RE A BREWERY NOT A CAFE' etc.etc.... More

Our second evening in Altstadt and we plumped for the Hausbrauerei Zum Schlussel. We were not disappointed. The traditional Alt Schlussel bier satisfied tremendously, and the Wiener Schnitzels and traditional sausage meals were enjoyed by all of us. Yum. Great atmosphere and a really friendly waiter made it an evening to remember. Highly recommended.

Always busy (often packed) and lively, this place serves only traditional German fare, and frankly does it well. Alt bier refreshed constantly (learn the process to stop it coming if you don't want it :) ) and great service from the multi-lingual staff. If you are a local or a tourist this is a great place to sample a little... More

Another authentic German restaurant with great food and beer. We all ate "German" and had amazing meals, including pork knuckle, red cabbage, dumplings, sauerkraut etc etc. Certainly worth visiting this place

Great food, swift service, nice traditional German atmosphere. 3 of us. Friends ordered the house special burger and the roast beef - said was good. I had the Schnitzel with chips and a starter salad. Nice tender pork, nice crispy thin batter. Got good table next to window. Like the German set up of just sitting and grabbing a table... More

Exellent food, great beer and very attentive, good humoured and pleasant service. Nothing was too much trouble. The food portions were enormous, the Schnitzel at 12.50 Euro was excellent value, the Goulash was exquisite.

Great local Altbier (the local brew). Crowded always. Popular amongst both locals and tourists. Two Euros for a glass of Altbier. Food available but I only had the beer and it is well worth having here. Don't mix up Schlussel (key) with schlössern (Lock). The beers are not the same!

This is exactly what I wanted from a trip to Germany, a wide selection of delicious local delicacies and some proper German drinks. It's a hughe place and the brew their own beers which we found delicious, the service was polite and speedy and the food was exactly what you'd expect in a beer hall. Good portions of hearty, local... More

For me personally the beer was not the best, but that is a matter of taste, not quality. The food was great, also I did not like the spice they were using in almost all of the food, especially in the sauerkraut, but again only a matter of taste, a couple of my friends loved it! Anyways, awesome place to... More
