We didn’t find many fading ads on our recent trip to Germany. We stayed in Köningswinter which used to be hoidy-toidy. Hotel Wenzel is now closed and didn’t look as if it will ever reopen, bar Im Schiffchen (‘in the little ship’) has seen better days. Loved our stay though. Saw good art in Köln and Bonn, ate lots of Bratwurst and Salzkartoffeln. Köngswinter, all in the Hauptstrasse.

ESTABLISHED 1666

The brewery that was once the pride of East London is back. One of the greatest names in British brewing, Truman’s has been a part of London life for almost 350 years.  Closed in 1989 during dark days for the brewing industry, we have been working hard to bring Truman’s back to its former glory.
