07 October 2019

From 7th -14th October, we are hosting a week-long Bavarian-style knees up in honour of Oktoberfest, featuring eight exclusive beers, our take on the currywurst and a German Bierkeller makeover of the terrace!

In true Oktoberfest fashion, we’ll be introducing a spiced version of the currywurst to the menu topped with a tempered mustard slaw in a kati roll with a Bengali kasundi mustard sauce. While the bar team have chosen eight beers, four produced here in the UK and four German Oktoberfest beers that will be available to enjoy across the week.

Then on the evening Thursday 10th October we’ll celebrate our final Battle of the Beers – “The Battle of Britain: Oktoberfest Special” in collaboration with Harbour Brewing and Thornbridge, where we invite you into the Tap Room for an interactive beer battle. Taste your way through our Oktoberfest beer list with scorecards provided to rank the German and English beers, while brewers will be on hand to provide detailed tasting notes. Only one beer can be chosen as the winner, earning a guest place on our beer list for the month.

Who will be victorious, Britain or Germany? YOU DECIDE

Meanwhile, the Oktoberfest celebrations will continue in full force on the Brigadiers terrace through to the weekend of Saturday 12th October and Sunday 13th October, with the terrace’s wooden tables mimicking a Bavarian beer hall complete with festive themed bunting, lederhosen t-shirts up and overflowing steins up for grabs!

And, as no beer hall is complete without some music, we’ll be welcoming a roaming Oompah band on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday to get you all into the Oktoberfest spirit!

Prost to that!
