Martinsbräu Bräutüble is a charmingly restored half-timbered building with an old world interior and covered outside seating area. Traditional in the sense that there is a midday pause, their menu features both typical Franconian fare and more adventurous offerings such as pasta, seafood and vegetarian options. They also have three of the local Martinsbräu beers on tap, as well as some of them bottled.
interior & outdoor areas
I was specifically in town to have a few meals here and try what beers they had on tap. I started off with their Weizen Hefe Hell and it was just what I needed on this warm day. I opted for their house specialty Schäuferla and all worries that this was Franconia were allayed. It was a heavenly example and I was happy to see their Dunkel not only on tap but featured on the chalkboard. It wasn’t the most popular beer but there were people drinking it.
a lovely lunch started things off
After a wander around town and to the local beer shops to pick up bottles of Martinsbräu beers not on tap at the restaurant, I returned for dinner. Their Pils was in great form and I started with a creamy asparagus soup.
An aperitif & tasty soup
I had another Pils with a plate of white asparagus with new potatoes since it was prime time Spargelzeit. Though I wasn’t overly hungry their description of the local ham was too tempting. It was a huge portion and you could easily share the ham with another asparagus diner. I got another Landbier Dunkel when I found out they had also run out of their seasonal Maibock. I was offered their Doppelbock but had already bought one at the shop so drank what was on tap and rewarded myself with one of their Doppelbock Bierbrands.

It was a great experience all around. Every dish was excellent. The outside seating is functional and I’d have rather sat inside in the evening but it was booked out so reservations are suggested even during the week. Service was quite good as well and had a particularly friendly server in the evening. There is a brewery owned Biergarten on the river, a short walk away. It was gorgeious but was unfortunately closed the day I was in town as they had a brewery festival that weekend. Another reason to return.
