Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited by myself as I was here for a work conference. Decided I better have a German hotdog since I was in Hahndorf. I didn't have a booking but they were very friendly and found my a table on the balcony (my request). The cost...was more than I expected as I didn't realise there was a 10% surcharge on Sundays (not sure why this is necessary - I understand the surcharge on Public Holidays). My food and drink arrived quickly and the hotdog was huge. I had to use my knife and fork to eat it. I enjoyed it but would have enjoyed it even more if it had a bit more tomato sauce on it as it only had a small amount drizzled on the top.More

Enjoyable meals which were generous in size. The pork ribs went down a treat and the two big-eaters did not leave hungry. Even better, they also have vegan options. Hands down the best pub in Hahndorf and even though they were flat out and had...lines out of the door waiting to come in, we were not rushed. Big shout out to our server Samuel who did an amazing job looking after us. We will be back.More

Flavours just swirl in my mouth. I had pork belly, freshly cooked not preprepared. Service was ok, good if you don’t want to be bothered during meal. Pared with. Hofbrau Dunkel. Perfect.

This is a great place to eat. Your meal is brought to your table with courtesy and a smile. If you go away hungry you are a rarity. The meals are old fashioned German size. Very tasty and filling. The Apple Strudel melts in your...mouth.More

A wonderful hotel with great German food and service. We had the roast pork meal and it was, hands down, the most tender and best cooked roast pork meal we've had... Thanks heaps. Ian and Nat (visiting from NSW)

It's cold in the Adelaide Hills in winter so when you walk in and there's multiple fires going and a menu full of comfort food you know you're going to be satisfied. Great staff. Food was delicious. We went back for another pretzel.

Decided to have lunch here on Sunday, we hadn't made a reservation, they accommodated us in the upper section, overlooking the garden, and back car park. Great service, and the food was amazing... Staff friendly and pleasant, especially Siobhan..

A group of disabled tenpin bowlers visited this venue for lunch, whilst we were in Hahndorf. Our booked table was ready and we were even given instructions on the best way to enter so we would not encounter steps! Food was swiftly delivered and was...extremely tasty. Sit near the fire on a cold day! Great value for money.More

Great venue with great food. All areas were kept warm by the fires, and the food was great. Our table service was excellent, with Sasha serving us. The restaurant was fairly full, but she was always prompt and cheerful in looking after us. We shared...a sausage platter with cauliflower bites as an ad on. This easily fed 3 hungry blokes. The sauerkraut on the platter was really really good. The meal worked out to about $25/person. The selection of beers was also good, and the mulled cider was a special treat when we moved to the main area after eating. This venue can get very busy, so booking is advised.More

We had to try a 'traditonal' German meal when in Hahndorf and we were not disappointed with our experience. A very busy pub that certainly has the dining experience down pat. Good wait service, information about the menu as needed. We decided to try the...German sausage platter for two and loved all that was served. Sauerkraut was particularly excellent. We would recommend visiting here for a meal when in Hahndorf.More
