Another old place right in the heart of the Altstadt and with all the other pubs a very short walk away, this pub is in an old building and is a hotel as well, a nice warm welcome on a cold winter night, it serves a wide selection of local beers which the staff are happy to explain and let...

Good price / quality for food. Good local beer as well. Seems to be crowded during dinner time, but if you arrive earlier (6.30pm) is ok. You can pay by card if you want, not only german EC :)

Mainly local people eat here, as it is slightly off the tourist area, so good local food and great beer

Over the road the Schlenkerla was very busy but inside this restaurant it was relatively quiet. We dont know why. The service was very good, the pork shoulder (Schauferla) was superb and the Schlenkerla rauchbier was an excellent match. Was good value for money. Even the Schlenkerla beers on tap were the same price as over the road (I had... More

This is one of the greatest experiences in the German cuisine that I have ever tasted in my life! I ate Schäuferla, it's a grilled pork shoulder with savoy cabbage and potato dumpling. It's really a succulent plate and very fulfilling. I had their traditional smoked beer and it was way over the top! Loved every sip and every bite... More

Left much to be desired. First we were seated in breakfast room of hotel. Second, service was very slow. Third, I ordered Bavarian cheese plate. It was more like 4 scoops of processed cheese spread -- not good. My son had one of the sausage variety plates. The sausages were mediocre at best. The potato dumpling was a congealed mass... More

The Good Friday was a busy day. The weather was cold, too. So the demand of seats was strong. At least during the prime time, which was the time you visit our house. Unfortunately, we couldn’t have seated you in the restaurant itself, we offered you a table in our extra room. Which is also used for the breakfast service.... More

What it is not: Beautiful, Elegant, International, famous for service, bright, modern, fast food, vegan, vegetarian, familiar foods, tastes and preparation (Unless you know what to expect from Bavarian Cuisine). The vast majority of beer served in the Alt Ringlein is of the smoked variety. On first taste you might hate it. As people come to know it, many of... More

Pork knuckles was ok. Beef with horse radish cream (I really wouldn't call it a sauce) was not. Salad was swimming in the dressing. The smoked beer is definitely an acquired taste.

Our kitchen is open all day from 11 am to 10 pm and serves Franconia regional specialties. Crispy Schauferla, pork sausages, Franconia Sauerbraten, Bamberger Krenfleisch (beef in horse-radish sauce), etc.

Bamberg is famous for beer, in particular, smoke beer. We have two to try and compare. One from the brewery Special and the Schlenkerla Rauchbier . Of course we have a lager, Ungespundets (a U) and Wheat beer.

The wine drinkers will also find something here. We serve wines of the Wine Cellars of Wurzburg , both by the glass , as well as Bocksbeutel.
