Weisses Kreuz – Local food, local people

Closed under current Covid restrictions.

Weisses Kreuz isn’t fancy. It’s probably what some people would call an ‘old man’s pub’, but that’s what gives it so much charm. They have a proper ‘Stammtisch’, which is a table reserved for regulars (‘Stammgäste’), and according to legend, these guys pay the same price for their beers as they did when they first started coming in the 1980s.

Not only does Weisses Kreuz deliver on the beer front, they also serve really good Swiss food. This isn’t one of those kitschy tourist traps where the staff run around blowing Alphorns and yodelling, it’s just a proper Swiss bar, serving real, good grub. It’s also much better value than the alternative. I love visiting in Autumn, when they have a special ‘Wild’ menu, serving game, such as wild boar and venison.

At other times of year, try any of their dishes that come with ‘rösti’ and you will want to become a ‘Stammgast’ too!
