Dinner here upon the recommendation of the concierge from our hotel (St Pancras Renaissance). What a wonderful suggestion! The drinks were different but delicious! My husband had a bourbon washed in peanut butter with chocolate wine drink served a copper mug. Didn’t sound very good, but was delicious! For dinner my husband had the Butcher Plate and I had the veal schnitzel. Both were delicious! The veal was a very thick, but extremely tender cut of meat! Would highly recommend both dishes!!

Very large beautifully restored building that had a lovely atmosphere. The service was attentive but they did not show any real interest in us or in the food they were serving. The main dishes were between average & good however none of us enjoyed the Lyonnaise potatoes or the triple cooked chips as neither tasted nice or fresh. The chips were so pale & limp that they appeared to us all to have been cooked once only & then kept warm before being served. When we mentioned this we were told they were just regular triple cooked chips and no replacements were offered.

Dear mrsmouse,

Thank you for choosing German Gymnasium and for taking the time in passing on your valuable feedback.

Whilst we are glad to see you have enjoyed the atmosphere, we are obviously sorry to read that the food was far from desirable and it is frustrating to know that we did not manage to rectify it on the spot.

It is definitely far from our usual standards and we would like to apologize for the poor show.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch directly via samb@germangymnasium.com to book your next visit; we will make sure your experience will be one to remember for all the right reasons.

We look forward to hearing from you and re-establishing your trust in German Gymnasium.

Best regards,
Sam & the team

Very attentive and dealt with my picky Grandma excellently. The food was very nice, especially the sausages and the tea was topped up with hot water with no complaints. Would definitely return.

Walked in with couple of friends for a dinner without reservation. We were offered to have a drink at the bar and still were seated quickly, even though it was busy evening. The food was great (Buttermilk chicken burger - you MUST try it!) and really enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant! After the dinner, went upstairs to the bar for a drink and stayed there for couple of hours - both drinks and service were great and very nice place to have a chat with friends!
Thanks to the team of GG!

Went with a group of friends for Sunday lunch, nice table upstairs, with a drink at the bar beforehand. Very good service, gorgeous building, and lively location. The food is what you would expect - schnitzels and so on - and not bad value.
