London’s Bavarian Beerhouse is looking for franchise opportunities to expand its Oktoberfest restaurant concept throughout the UK and Ireland.
Owners Rene and Sabine von Reth, who opened the first Bavarian Beerhouse in Old Street, London in 2004, are inviting queries from investors and pub landlords, particularly in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Dublin and Birmingham.
After quadrupling the revenues seen by the Old Street venue’s previous tenant within their first year, the von Reths embarked on rolling out the concept and have recently opened their second branch in Tower Hill.

Sabine von Reth said the restaurants’ Oktoberfest entertainment concept had proven so popular that the pair were keen to see it expand across the whole country.
“Clearly, Bavarian-style entertainment is a winning formula,” she said. “We know that’s the main reason for our success in our two London outlets.
“Now the expansion continues - we’re very excited by the idea of bringing traditional Bavarian food, drink and entertainment to other places. The Bavarian Beerhouse would like to hear from investors and enterprising pub landlords who are keen to try out a proven business concept.”
The Bavarian Beerhouse serves traditional German dishes such as pork shanks, sausages and sauerkraut, while traditionally-dressed waiters provide entertainment in the form of yodelling, singing and dancing.
