The Art Deco in this restaurant is amazing, creates such awe and wonder even just walking upstairs to the loo. I loved my baked cauliflower, with cream, cheese and bacon. Really tasty. And great wine too. As we arrived for lunch they were clearing away what was, I guess, a breakfast buffet. It looked really impressive too. We will return!

We often eat at Die Knolle in Herford Germany. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. English menu available. I recommend the steaks and spare ribs. Value for money.

We have eaten in this restaurant many many times and never had anything ut good tasting great value meals. The ribs are to die for (especially on the all you can eat night) and every dish is hot and filling. Of special note are the lunches. They are again great Value For Money and

This place offers the best German food in Herford; the home made flavor cannot be topped. Prices are accessible, service is good... Die Deutsche Knolle!

We dine here regularly, a lot of choice on the menu. Portions are huge so you won't be leaving hungry. There is also a lunch time special which are smaller portions and for around 8 euros for a 3 course menu it is worth every cent and more.

We go here at least once a month and have never been disappointed. Consistently wonderful food, large portions (always take a a doggie bag home), friendly service, and historic setting. Accommodates larger family events in separate room. I always have one of their fish selections. Their specialty is potatoes. You can't go wrong at the Knolle. There's something for everyone's...

Reasonably cheap and tasty food. The restaurant has a large selection of dishes - wished I tried the potato burger which looked superb (food envy). The restaurant has a traditional atmosphere which was topped on this visit with Oktoberfest theme. This was my fourth visit in a year and will certainly go again.

The location in the basement of the old building of the town hall is very cosy and has got it's atmosphere. I think that is why this restaurant is not closed yet. Have been there several times because I love potato meals. But Germany got a whole lot of "Potato Houses" and this one is not the best at all.... More
