    We'll be having short breaks in Manchester and Cardiff shortly. We'd quite like to try out any German style pubs and restaurants while we are there. I found these for Manchester.

    Manchester Food & Drink Menu | The Bierkeller

    Cook Haus | Albert's Schloss

    Cask.
    manchester german pubs - Google Search

    I could only find another Bierkeller for Cardiff.

    Food Menu Cardiff | The Bierkeller

    Has anyone any idea how good these places are and are there other German pubs to be found? We're particularly interested in any hard to get German bier. The Bierkeller has Paulaner which I haven't had for several years. Any help or advice would be very helpful.

    Alberts Schloss seems really popular, I can't vouch for its authenticity for German cuisine but it generally seems well liked.

    Unfortunately I have quite a few problems eating nowadays so the food isn't that important to me. Two years ago I had cancer. The treatment caused all sorts of problems. My taste buds were completely destroyed. They have recovered quite well in some areas but most meat still tastes pretty awful. My wife will be more interested in the food than I am but she can eat almost anything.

    Do they have a good selection of German bier? I never know what I'll be able to taste these days. There are several I haven't had a chance to try since my cancer. I'm quite keen to find out which ones I can still enjoy. Pils and some of the dunkels (dark beers) used to be my favourites.

    I don't know where you are based, but i regularly go to Belgium / Netherlands for beers and can bring some of your preferred beer choice back if you wish.

    That's extremely kind of you but I couldn't put you to that trouble. I could probably find an online supplier. At the moment I'm just looking to make the most out of our visit to Manchester and Cardiff. Hopefully I will some good bier and be able to taste it.

    Many thanks

    Thanks. A few good brews there. Spaten used to be a favourite of mine. It would be very interesting to see if I can taste that one. I can get some of those locally such as Krombacher, Jever and some Helle bier but that's a damn good link. :smashin:

    I've just been out and bought some German food in the hope I'll be able to taste it. It's been quite a while since I last tried. Being able to eat the food would be an advantage in going out to a German restaurant.

    No worries. I never bring my full allowance back anyway, but enough to last 6 months :)

    A last minute thing has been a visit to Leeds. I found the Bierkeller and the Atlas Brauhaus. The Bierkeller had Veltins and Paulaner Helles. I used to really enjoy Veltins before my cancer but I couldn't taste it that well. The Paulaner was much better. It was the same situation in the Atlas except that was between the Paulaner and Sparten. Sparen was another old favourite that I couldn't taste very well.
