  Jessica & I enjoy a beer

Steins is a Bavarian Beer bar located by the River Thames, in Richmond, South West London. Its trading hours vary depending on the season...and the weather I would think seeing as all the seating is open air (with umbrella cover).

It is a fairly basic concept. If you want to drink, you need to buy some food. First, find a table - there are large tables, great for groups of happy beer swillers. Then, remembering your table number you go up to the counter to order your food and then to another counter for your beer.

There is not a huge choice of food or beer....but it is all about drinking a cold one by the river.

Alex and I stopped by one sunny day for lunch along with fellow VT'er Jessica-b. We all ate some funny looking meat loaf and enjoyed a Paulaner beer. It was certainly an enjoyable place to relax and enjoy the summers day.

Only one small problem....later that day we all had a slight case of food poisoning....lousy meatloaf.
