We’d heard a buzz about this gastropub in Kreuzberg serving up Sunday roasts. So one wet and cold Sunday, we decided to head on down to St. Bart’s and see what all the fuss was about.
We immediately felt welcomed by the friendly staff and the cosy, warm interior (just what we needed after being out in the rain). The crowd was a mix of families with kids, couples and friends hanging out in an all-round, good pub vibe.
We couldn’t help but notice the large, well-stocked bar serving beer on tap, cocktails and an impressive wine list. There was also a selection of ‘orange’ wines on offer, which we were intrigued to try. The staff were happy to explain about the different wines and also let us try before taking a glass – we’re pleased to say that all the wine we tried was delicious.
Now for the food. The roast selection isn’t so cheap for Kreuzberg, however it’s presented as a sharing option which means you can go in groups of 2, 3 or 4 and split between you. The prices are definitely justified by the quantity and quality of the food. Between two of us, we enjoyed a half-bird and a few sides (carrots in honey, goose fat spuds, yorkshire pudding and stuffing) which was plenty, moreover, it was really tasty. All of the produce is fresh and perfect for sharing with your friends and family.
There’s also a main menu throughout the week (roasts are only served on Sunday’s, traditional English style!) with different specials each night. Some dishes really stood out for being quintessentially British, like the back bacon sandwich and scotch eggs though there are plenty of other very interesting things to try, for example smoked eel or pumpkin and goat’s cheese tart. There are also a few dessert options available. Sadly we were too full to try anything else, but that just means we’ll have to go back again to sample more of their goodies.
You can take a look at their Instagram account to get a better idea of what’s on offer (warning: don’t look when you’re feeling hungry).
St Bart’s is open Monday to Sunday, between 16h00 and 0h00. Food is served from 18h and also for lunch on the weekends, between 12h00 and 16h00. Reservations can be made online. We can’t wait to go back and see how their weekly menu compares to the Sunday roast, though we’re pretty sure it’ll be top-notch.
