The Bierkeller is a Bavarian institution, and while Cheltenham is a long way from Munich, you can get an authentic taste of Germany in the heart of the West Country. Delve deeper into the history of the regions and there is a little to tie them together. Where Munich lies on the outskirts of the Alps, a short hop from the mountains, Cheltenham is right by the Cotswolds, which provide a similarly outstanding natural environment. Ditto the local brews, and Scrumpy is as important to West Country folk as Weissbier is to the Bavarians. And who can ignore the successes of Cheltenham Town, who are to the local area what the mighty Bayern Munich are to Bavaria. Take a trip to Bath Road in the town centre to learn even more about the wonders of Bavarian culture in Cheltenham.
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
Had a Fab night and can't wait to go back
The quiz was really fun and there were so many people there to make a great atmosphere. Wished I could have stayed longer and I definitely would recommend the cocktails and food.

The dishes that you will encounter – the pretzels, the krakauer, bockwurst and currywurst, the pizzas with more topping than you can shake a breadstick at – are impressive, but the drinks are as much of a reason to visit The Bierkeller on Bath Road as the food. There is their house beer, of course, but also Becks from Bremen, Dortmunder from, well, Dortmund, Erdinger (dark or wheat beer) from Bavaria and, yes, even a West Country style cider or two as well.
