Tavern: Menu, Food

As for our smoked beer, we also make for our food a point of an all traditional and natural preparation. Schlenkerla dishes are hence not made with industrially generated, time saving precursors, nor do they contain artificial aromas or similar ingredients which are commonly used elsewhere. The Schlenkerla kitchen staff starts working every morning at 7 a.m. in order to be able to serve freshly cooked to you. It is therefore quite possible, that some dishes sell out during the day. The Schlenkerla suppliers come from Bamberg and Bamberg county and are hence truely Franconian. Enjoy your meal!
