I heard the place is famous for its burgers. Pulled beef and pulled pork burgers are so so, edible. We came at around 6, the place was almost empty but they told us that only one table left. The service was good and very fast! The restaurant had a wide variety of beers all over the world. You can order... More

We were there for Mother's Day. The place is easy to access as by the road/motorway and convenient for a digestive walk in the green after. There is a room only for children and they had the great idea to organize a room just for changing baby and breastfeeding. Staff was friendly. The positives stops there, it was quiet dirty... More

The location is very nice, especially if you can enjoy nice weather outside. The staff is very helpfull and also enjoyable.

I wish I could give this place a 5 star review but after two visits consulting with various friends, I'm sad to say I cannot. It's a wonderful place to go with children, the restaurant is adorable, has a big playroom upstairs and a nice outdoor play space and is next to a small stable with horses and goats...but the...

A classic case of old meets new. Close to Sihl City and Brunau train station specialises in burgers and an extensive range of bottled beer from far and wide. The building is a converted farmhouse and horses/goats in the yard maintain an artisan smell outside. Inside the ambiance is English country pub, just a bit more pricey.

I've been walking a lot with my dog around the area and never even realized that this house had a restaurant in it. Or maybe I did but never even thought about entering since the house doesn't look too inviting from the outside and the area (right under the Highway) doesn't seem to be too appealing. But I was wrong!... More

Eat here, and by all means, ask your server for help as you navigate the deep beer list (and always expanding wine list, too) if you're not an expert or looking for something new. These guys do pork right, so opt for any form of it and be happy. If you happen to arrive on fried chicken night, just get... More

This place was recommended by my American friend so I decided to check whether it's god place. We ordered scrambled eggs (potatoes and toast in the set) and pancakes with banana and salted caramel- both portions were really big so next time I will take definitely child portion but both dishes were tasty. Service really friendly in American style. Will... More

Customer service doesn't exist. You call them up and they'll tell you to make up your mind or otherwise book a table online cause "we have 120 people right now and we're too busy". Here you go.
