Germany has cancelled Oktoberfest this year – but you can still take part in the festivities closer to home.
Over at The Corn Exchange, Döner Haus is celebrating the world’s largest beer and folk festival by serving up huge steins of Bavarian beer, themed cocktails and all the Oktoberfest food we love like bratwurst, schnitzel and pretzel.
There will be six special Oktoberfest biers at the German style döner kebab house as well as an exclusive Oktoberfest menu.
Authentic treats include a Bavarian platter consisting of Bavarian meats, two paprika wurst and a pretzel, served with cream cheese, rocket, pickles, sauerkraut and homemade curry ketchup.
Other food specials include their very own Volkswagen currywurst, using pork wurst imported directly from the Volkswagen Wolfsburg factory, who produce more wurst than cars per year.
It’s served with homemade curry ketchup, sauerkraut, skin-on fries and seasoning, and goes perfectly with their Hofbrau Oktoberfestbier – which comes in at a mighty 6.3%.
It’s the first time the 180-cover restaurant, which opened late last year and faces Cathedral Gardens, has celebrated the festival.
The Döner Haus menu includes chicken and vegan schnitzel and Berlin döner as well as foot-long frankfurters, bratwurst and currywurst.
For non meat eaters, there’s also a Beechwood smoked vegan sausage made with wheat protein and served with skin-on fries, sauerkraut, side salad and curry ketchup.
Oktoberfest celebrations start today, and you can expect proper German beers and Germany’s favourite street food along with a warm Bavarian welcome.
And, what’s more, those who come specially dressed for the occasion will receive a totally free beer on the haus. So what are you waiting for?
Celebrate Oktoberfest at Döner Haus, The Corn Exchange, M4 3TR, from the 21st September until the 4th October 2020. Tables are filling up fast, so be sure to reserve a table.
