We were invited to a birthday party at Forsthaus Telegraph. When planning the route, we came across the very positive reviews, which Forsthaus Telegraph has received online. Our expectations were therefore quite high and we were not disappointed!
To serve a four course menu plus a delicious “greeting from the kitchen” and drinks timely and with no hick-ups is not easy. The team at Forsthaus Telegraph managed to serve politely and quietly.
Our host had a good hand in choosing the menu. The starter was a Tartar from “Matjes” with spring salad and small potato pancakes. Down to earth, Northern and good, but for my taste the potato pancakes were a bit greasy. The crèmesoup of curry with mango strips was a tasty, well-chosen contrast. For the main course, there was a very tasty fillet of pork with herbs on malt beer sauce and vegetables. The Palatinan Pinot Blanc and the Pinot Noir from the Nahe were good, combining well with the food.
When the dessert variety “Forsthaus Telegraph” was served it became very quiet in our room, it was very good.
The Forsthaus Telegraph follows the habit of using UHT milk for latte, which unfortunately is widespread in Germany. Not using fresh milk leads to a one point deduction on the rating. However, on a positive note, it should be mentioned that the team was on hand to alternatively prepare coffee with fresh whipped cream.
The Forsthaus Telegraph is modern, however it has many rustic features and original features.
The modern toilets and the guest rooms were spotlessly clean.
The Forsthaus Telegraph lies south of the runways of Cologne-Bonn airport (CGN), on the edge of the military restricted area, in the “Kaiserforst” at Wahner Heide. I did not hear the airport, not even on the outside terrace. The environment is quiet and green.
The Forsthaus Telegraph deserves an almost unqualified recommendation.
