Down in a basement in Bayswater, fondue, beer, a sing a long and a cabaret of cowbells awaits you. Welcome to the infamous Tiroler Hut. Enter into the wood paneled house of Austrian cheese at its best.
Now if you like The Sound of Music, you’ll love the Tiroler Hut. How can you go wrong with drindl-clad waitresses, men in lederhosen playing tunes on an accordion and massive steins of beer and apple schnapps to keep things sociable. Eat your meal of liquid cheese or your plate full of sausages, and watch the owner and his accordion lead you through a sing along and a little bit of yodeling thrown into the mix. And if you’re as lucky as I was, you may be invited to help perform a live cowbell rendition of Edelweiss.
