Here’s our pick of the best Oktoberfest shindigs in London:

Bavarian Beerhouse, German Restaurant & Bar

Get allocated seats and two free beers for a regular £14.50 ticket or dish out a bit more for the delicious Schnitzel ticket where you get to chose between pork shanks, sausages and dumplings. You can even go all out and get yourself the fancy dress ticket for £34.50 which includes a shot of schnapps and an original Oktoberfest hat. Expect no queues at the bar because all of the beautiful ladies will be serving you up – and to top it off the oompah Band come all the way from Germany to give you a top notch night of entertainment. They pull in 18,000 drinkers for the event.

£13-£34.50, September 21 – October 22, Wed – Thurs 19.00 – 23.00, Friday – Sat 19.00 – 1.00.

The Spirit of Oktoberfest in the City of London, Old Billingsgate Market

Book a table for ten and get unlimited beer and as much delicious German food as you want. Loads of stage acts and entertainment go with the experience.  £145 per person may seem a lot (well, it is a lot) but think about how much money you would normally spend on a night out – say no less than £100? Then add £20-30 for dinner and there you go, £100 quid at least. Here you get seven different beers to chose from, heaps of food, loads of ladies (dressed in weird traditional costumes with their tits hanging out) and if you’re drunk enough you can even buy some of those pieces of clothing for yourself.

£1,450 per table (£145pp), October 20 –October 21, 13.00 – 18.00.

Oktoberfest Pub for all round OktoberfestNow this place celebrates Oktoberfest almost all year round. All the booze is imported directly from Munich and the cuisine is as Deutsch as it gets. From pork knuckles to huge portions of schnitzels to bratwursts, you get the idea. There are also 80 German beers to chose from, loads of strong schnapps (for the brave hearted) and heaps of drinking and eating games.  Book a cheapo keg for £37.50 or if you’re real thirsty get the 50 litre mammoth of a keg for 375 quid – that’s less than £4 a pint. Not bad considering you get free entertainment! Oompa oompa.

£15 – £375 Every day, all year round.
