Absolutely lovely setting outside by the church. Food was good. Service was efficient, but not overly friendly. I'd eat here again for the pretty setting.

Charming hotel, wine-bar/pub, and restaurant in the heart of Rothenburg. This place has been family-run for generations, and Christoph (the manager) took very good care of us! Amazing blonde and dark "keller bier" + the food is locally sourced. For tourists, they speak English very...More

While most of the review of this establishment are good, our experience was not. We stopped for a late lunch and sat outside opposite St Jakobskirche. We ordered several cheese plates and wine and beer. Service was slow to non-existent, almost begrudgingly given. Several diners...More
