Tiroler Hut: A touch of Austria in Bayswater
I've been here twice, both times with a group of colleagues for a leaving do, and that's just the sort of occasion this place is right for. I don't think I'd choose it for a romantic meal for two, a business meeting or as a setting for a serious discussion, but if a crowd of you want to let your inhibitions go for an evening and have a good laugh, you could do a lot worse!
The menu is Austrian, as the name suggests - dishes such as bratwurst and stuffed cabbage among the starters, and wienerschitzel, gulasch or roast knuckle of pork for mains. The house speciality is an amazing platter of assorted meats for two people, which none of us was brave enough to try, and another sharing dish is the fondue, which two of us did have and enjoyed.
But the main feature here is the traditional Austrian atmosphere. The restaurant is in a basement and the decor is straight from the Alps, at its most kitsch. The waiting staff are all in traditional dress, including lederhosen for the men. As for the entertainment, I'll let the restaurant's website describe that:
"Joseph your host welcomes you to a lively evening of entertainment including Yodelling, Accordion and the highly original Tirolean Cow Bell Show"
To get the best from this experience you need to down a few beers (check the size of those steins!) and join in. Thus our table sang along to a rousing selection from the Sound of Music and other old hits, from Sinatra to traditional Bierkeller favourites. And to round off your evening, I can definitely recommend the schnapps!
TIROLER HUT: UMP PA PA !
If you like big beers, big sausages, and some Austrian music every night – this is the place in London for you. I recommend a reservation. I tried to get in on a Sunday night with no luck. They have a large menu and the staff are friendly. There are a bit expensive even by London standards. A starter and 1 beer cost me £14 ($27). The food is good and its full of Austrian and Germans to give that old world sort of flavour. Its better for large parities.
You can make reservations on their website right now! They are closed Mondays and open Tuesday to Saturday from 6.30pm to 1am, Sundays 6.30pm to 11pm
DO NOT TIP THE STAFF! A 10% SERVICE CHARGE IS ALREADY ADDED IN!

tiroler hut: fake beams, the works
The Tiroler Hut is one of the cheesiest restaurants in London. Made to look like a '70's ski lodge with fake beams and cow bells everywhere. Nevertheless, it attracts the likes of Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer and Burt Kwouk. This place is a riot. Some nights there is live Alpine music, with yodelling thrown in. We go there occassionaly with friends and always have a great time. The waiters are fun as is the crowd.
Favorite Dish: Although the theme is German/Austrian, if it's on the menu, then the suckling pig is delicious. If not then the non authentic Hungarian goulash comes in bucket loads.
