Disgusted with the food. The schnitzel was processed, the food had no flavour, like it was boiled. I couldn't wait to come eat here and my family and I were so disappointed. In saying this the staff were friendly!

A real taste of Germany. Really busy place in pumping Hanford. Been here several times & does not disappoint. Homely & warm especially if you visit in winter as a nice log fire. We ate like champions with a soup starter with warm beautiful bread. Then the 2 of us sharing a huge schnitzel & a mighty pork knuckle needed... More

Only came in for a drink but I wish we were here for lunch. Nice atmosphere, good balcony views on the street and nice beer! Didn't eat here but the food and menu looked great.

We went to the German Arms on a baking hot day in January this year, luckily we found a nice outside table in the shade. Good menu, but beware of ordering the hot dogs as they are huge and each one could feed a family of 4! Delicious but too much. Good German beer and good atmosphere
