Visited today and had the sharing 1m hotdog. It looks amazing presented on the wooden block but the sausage is such a poor quality. Each bite you take water pours out making the bread soggy and eventually just falls apart. It's a shame as Iv had this before and enjoying it so I'm not sure why it was so bad.... More

We had the platter with pork knuckle, kassler chop, sausages and sauerkraut. The knuckle and chop were well cooked and flavoured, sausages were a bit plain but good all the same. The big disappointment is the sauerkraut which was blend, just a commercial cooked variety. The staff were friendly, the wine selection is great with some excellent local ones and... More

Having been to Germany twice and Northern Italy (previously part of Austria) I sort of had reasonable expectations. The Brauhaus Platte for $90 (2 people) left me wanting. The sausages were nice but the pork knuckle was all fat, bone and little meat. The worst I have ever had. The dumplings were a joke, my wife had the salad eventually... More

Its been a while since i was last in Hahndorf, The Inn easily the best German offering in the town. Lots of other pretenders in this village but this place offers the best atmosphere, food and beer. Order the ham hock, nice crackling, soft inside. Meals are large and good value for money. this place is always busy so would... More

The seating is outside, at the front, and if you want table service, which is at the back, book ahead especially if it is on a busy night. The Inn has an old world charm with the added bonus of a few Bavarian dishes, some of which are for two or four people. We have dined there numerous times and... More

My wife and I walked into the pub to have a light snack and a beer for lunch on a recent visit. When we saw the size of the meals being served we decided to just have a beer! The meals looked huge and very good but a lot more than we were up for at the time. The atmosphere... More

Ok. So this place has a beer that is bigger than my head, and I have a big head. Serving in the 1 litre steins (if you so choose) the beers are traditional German varieties, that the staff were willing to help with recommendations. My tip with the beer is, if you are a slow drinker, don't go for the... More

Four of us went to Hahndorf Inn for lunch in search of a hearty German meal at a beautiful pub! We sure got what we were after! We ordered the $75 share platter and a Weiner schnitzel which was plenty for the four of us. To be honest, I'd say the '2-3 serves' platter would definitely do 4! Amazing food... More

If you are in South Australia and want to have a taste of original German atmosphere then Hahndorf and the Hahndorf Inn is the place to go. Not only tastes the food genuine German the beer has the original taste too. Prices are not cheap but what you get is genuine and value for money. Be inspired in this "Gasthaus"... More
