Oktoberfest is the biggest beer festival in the world, and is usually held every year, running from mid or late September to the first Sunday in October. The original Oktoberfest took place in 1810, to celebrate a wedding between the crown prince Ludwig and his Teresa and so they held a royal horse race. The event took place on a meadow (Weise in German) named after the princess and the meadow still has this name today, Theresienwiese.
The official Oktoberfest, Munich may be cancelled this year, but it doesn’t mean you can’t find a way of celebrating.
The Octoberfest Pub has been celebrating for the past 15 years Oktoberfest all year round in London. There are many venues that have copied us, but we are the original and longest celebrated venue in London!
Under government guidance we are going to continue our tradition of celebrating Oktoberfest as we have for the past 15 years.
We will be featuring Hacker-Pschorr & Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier on draught starting the 26th of September while supplies last, so book early.
The German Oktoberfest Beer Festival has long been a party favourite. Who can resist the lure of over 40 types of German Beers combined with a live Bavarian brass band playing your favourite sing-along tunes during the months of October through December?
To ensure best practice in social distancing and to provide a safer environment, we will have fewer people working on each shift. We also have fewer people in our kitchens which means serving a reduced menu over reduced hours. Although we’re not expecting a change in our service level, we appreciate your understanding while we get to grips with the lay of our new land.
We have implemented a few changes in the short term. We will be operating a suggested reservation policy on a pre-paid basis to guarantee a table, as this enables us to control the flow of people.
