Our co-food editor took a trip down to The Berliner...
The Berliner is probably my favourite bar to visit round Beeston way, the reason being that there is always a promise of good vibes and a great playlist - and it doesn’t hurt that they run a daily cocktail special where you can get two cocktails for just £10. What a win!
However, recently the food has taken the spotlight for us; with a menu of banging German-inspired bites like thinly sliced Berlin-style fried potatoes loaded with different sauces and toppings. We tried the ‘Buffalo Style Potatoes’, priced at £6, which come topped with a morish spicy homemade buffalo sauce, garlic aioli, crispy onions, and chives. We also sampled a ‘Curry Dog’ for £5, which is a juicy beef or vegan frankfurter slathered in curry ketchup and onions. Lecker!
In addition to these delights, they also have falafel bites or halloumi pittas, as well as pizzas, and a big German pretzel served with your choice of either a cheese dip or chocolate sauce.
They also host, in my humble opinion, one of the best pub quizzes in Nottingham - which takes place every Wednesday at 8pm. In particular, their music quiz is a goodie - it’s popular and fills up quickly, so it’s best to make your booking through their website to secure your spot.
Keep an eye on their Instagram page as they have started hosting food pop ups too, with the likes of locals such as Prad Thai and Smokehouse UK!
