Excellent. Staff are very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Foods are deliciously good and well presented. I can't stopped eating! Nice place and very spacious
The food was amazing and the portions are huge. Great value for money. Lovely staff as well. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
A group of friends went to the Octoberfest Pub on a friday night and we had a fantastic time. The choice and quality of the beer is great and at a pretty reasonable price given this is a themed establishment in a nice part of London. The staff were excellent and the oompah band were absolute professionals. They got everyone dancing and singing and playing games. We will definitely be booking another evening, probably in the new year and definitely with more people involved since everyone we have showed our photos to is now interested. We'll definitely try some of the food next time.
Ein zwei g'suffe!
Booked a table for 2 at the Octoberfest pub in Fulham, upon arrival was shown to my seat then promptly ignored by the serving staff, I then made my way to the bar and asked if someone would take our order at the table. I was told "yes", err "maybe" then finally "no" so I was obliged to order food at the bar which was pathetic. To add insult to injury I was then obliged to pay up front for the food and drinks which is a strange way to order food in a restaurant especially one that purports to be an authentic German eating experience. The other thing that irritated me was the blaring dance music that was above conversation level of noise, How this can be described as German experience is beyond me. Avoid!
I was looking forward to have a Wiener Schnitzel like the one I had the last time, but they must have changed the recipe and added some kind of marinade ti it and I really didn't like it. I very much regretted not to have ordered the shank, as my friends did.
Overall, the place is nice, but service is very careless and slow.
In spite of all this, I'll definitely be back for the pork shank, it takes 45 mins to cook but it's worth the wait and the selection of bier is also very good.
To be honest the food is secondary at this brilliant beer hall ! That being said the sausages and other traditional German fare are brilliant and compliment the star of the show (beer) perfectly. A brilliant place to meet with friends and watch sport - we will defo return !
We enjoyed the atmosphere of fest, The Bratwursts were yummy and good choice of beer for guys and a warm welcome from the staff.
The Oktoberfest was great. Lots of good german draught beer, sausage, meat, chicken and pork. Just be aware it is more of a pub than a restaurant and you will enjoy it!
quaklity place. the schnitzel and Sauerkraut are a treat. good german beers and real Germans behind the bar expect for one Kiwi..
I had dinner here with my husband on a Friday evening. The place has more of a bar atmosphere. It was relatively quiet until a large group turned up for a celebration. It's a good place for a group event, but not so much for a dinner out.
Went to Fest in Fulham with work colleagues on a thursday night, quiet.
I think there was only two parties eating as well as us although the bar area was a little busier.
I had previously been to the Bavarian Beer House in City Road and i guess expected the same thing.
The atmosphere was nowhere as good as the BBH but that may have been because it was a thursday.
The food however was good and the Bratwurst was excellent.
bowl of chips was quality.
Schnitzel had big wraps. sauerkraut very good. quality staff serving. all good.
I booked The Fest Restuarant and Bar in Fulham for a work night out. We went on a friday and it was very quiet, with only a few other people in there. This didn't quite make for an Oktoberfest atmosphere but the beer was good and the food simple, filling and tasty to go with it!
The service at The Fest was excellent & the selection of Bavarian Beer was brilliant. Food & atmosphere was alright, but the emphasis was is on the beer.
The Fest Fulham Rd. Went on a saturday at 2.30pm. The pub was empty and thus had the undivided attention of the barman. He was polite, on the ball and amusing. Great selection of beers and the authentic tasting food was ordered and delivered within 10 minutes. I had the best tasting pork knuckle I'd ever had. My wife had the Vienna special and although 'well done' it was also very tasty. Don't expect too much from the decor. It is basic and does what it says on the tin. I would go again
If you're looking for pork knuckle in London, this is the place to come but the sauerkraut could have been warm instead of cold. The place has a sports bar feel so not good for a date. No soap in the gents toilets.
The staff were really fantastic and helpful. I took a large roudy group of musicians who all seemed very satisfied by the large 2 pint jugs and sausage. But don't go expecting a large salami when you order the hot snacks etc - they only cost 50p so accordingly they are the size of your little finger! It's a good place for a roudy night out!
I enjoyed my meal at The Fest, great beer, good food and very friendly staff.
The Fest Restaurant and Bar is really more of a pub - don't go expecting anything restaurant-like! There's no table service, and the tables are long with benches, meaning sharing tables is likely if it's busy. However, the food was good and it was a relaxed atmosphere, so if it's a pub lunch you're after, then this is a good option.
Fest was certainly an experience! Yes it was a bit blokey but if you fancy a fun night out and the thought of watching men down pints really fast doesn't put you off then this is a good place. Hearty food, big beers and lots of drunken fun!
The Fest is a UK Pub crossed with a German Beer House. The beers were perfect and the food authentic and in huge portions. Great atmosphere. A litte loud when we were there but still worth the effort!
The Fest is rather blokey and smokey. But the staff are friendly, there's a good choice of beers, and the German food is hearty and very good value for money.
