Philip Carter left this review about Katzenjammers

Nice German bar, though the only german stuff about it, is the bier. All the staff, as far as I can tell, are spanish or close by. Anyway, the service is good. My problem is, I went to the gents to do what men do, when I came back, my drink had gone and was about to be thrown away. I saved it. Today I went to the gent again, leaving my glasses as a pointer that I will return, wrong. My drink and my glasses were taken away to behind the bar. if any management are reading this, please note that, some customers are drinking alone and need to use your facilities. The only other course of action is for me to shout out, across the bar, that I am going to the loo and do not take my drink away.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Katzenjammers

Buried underneath The Hop Exchange building, the Bierkeller and restaurant can be found under a low, barrel-vaulted, brick ceiling, with the Bierhall below open at certain times. The bar area is crammed with tables, but these were all either taken or reserved for those dining, so space was starting to become a problem for those just looking for a drink or waiting for the oom-pah fun to start downstairs... Very good selection of 11 German beers from the various traditional and modern founts along the counter, from which range I went for Paulaner's Hefe-Weißbier Dunkel (£5.60) for my brief stop.

Steve of N21 left this review about Katzenjammer Bierkeller & Restaurant

As a frequent visitor to Munich on business, visiting a plastic Bavarian bierkeller in London has never really appealed. But got pulled in here the other night on a Borough crawl when I lost the vote on where to go next and I have to say they’ve done a good job here and it’s quite authentic.
Very good range of German beers, lots of dark wood décor, long wooden tables mentioned below that you are expected to share with complete strangers in the real thing (less inhibitions these Germans), and the waft of sauerkraut and sausages pervading through the rooms.
In fact the only areas that were not aligned to my experiences of the real thing were the beer prices, that sadly were significantly higher than what I pay for a dunkel weissbier in the bierkeller close to my firms Munich office, and the dressed up beer maids, who were far too petite and pretty compared to the real Bavarian serving wenches, and were struggling to carry two steins to a table. They wouldn’t last five minutes in the real thing where I’ve seen the female versions of Geoff Capes regularly carry six steins from the bar.
