About German Gymnasium

SquareMeal Review



In case you were wondering, German Gymansium in King’s Cross was in fact originally a gymnasium, built back in 1865 for the German Gymnastics Society. It also hosted London’s first indoor Olympic Games in 1866, so if you like your dinner to come with a bit of a history lesson, then this restaurant if your ticket.  

German Gymnasium is set inside a Grade II-listed building and offers suitably grand interiors throughout. The semi-private dining room is located on the upper floor with views over the main restaurant, boasting plenty of natural light and two huge grand tables which seat up to 32 guests, or 50 if you’re hosting a standing event. Guests can host breakfast, lunch and dinner in this smell-secluded spot, with the lights dimmed in the evenings to create an intimate feel. 

There are further private dining options if you’re looking to host a dinner for more people. The private dining room can be booked with the main restaurant and bar for up to 150 people seated or 250 standing. The area also benefits from its own private entrance, to ensure you’re event feels that extra bit special.  

There is also a stunning outdoor terrace that can be hired for between 10 to 50 guests, or for a really extravagant dinner, the entire restaurant can be booked for up to 250 seated guests. This covers a finite number of occasions, such as corporate evens or dinner dances.  

The mittel-European menu features things like schnitzel, herring and sausages in various forms. Examples of dishes include Jager Schnitzel (veal with mushroom sauce), KX Currywurst (curry-infused pork sausage with curried tomato sauce, triple-cooked chips and house sauce) and Herring ‘Hausfrauenart’ (onion, apple, soured cream, malted rye sunflower spread). The drinks menu includes a 'Around the Clock' cocktail menu, which are inspired by different times in the day, as well as a wine list that includes a number of German varieties.
