    Very, very noisy venue. We had to wait a very long time for our food to arrive. We were not offered any complementary drinks or discount. Tap water was not available and we had to buy still water

    The food is always wonderful at the German Gymnasium and I enjoy bringing friends here to experience it. Yesterday the service I received was exceptional as I had to change my reservation three times because of massively delayed trains. I was reassured and treated superbly. When the train finally arrived and I was able to turn up with my guest, reception welcomed us like old friends and took us straight to an even better table than the one I had originally booked. I will continue to bring family and friends here as often as I can.

    Have visited for lunch many times. Prices are noticeably increasing but quality of food not so. It’s a great, convenient place and service always excellent. This time, my cod was cold and no bread with starters. Disappointing. Yes, we could have ordered a basket of bread for £6+. but assumed gravalax and chicken terrine would have been accompanied by bread - particularly at the prices charged. Also slow service at bar.

    I met a friend for early supper. In the main restaurant on the ground floor. I was greeted by a lovely receptionist. My friend had already arrived & it was good to see she had been served with a glass of nicely chilled wine by Jojo our waitress who looked after us very well and gave us good advice on our food & wine. Both the food and service were very good
