    This place is awesome. Definitely a unique and fun place to hang out  and stay late. Really hilarious entertainment and awesome beers. I make a point of stopping in any time I am in London.

    The owner plays Edelweiss on cowbells. Among other things.

    The bratwurst is served with a huge pile of sauerkraut.

    They serve beer in steins that need to be picked up with two hands.

    The music can be a bit loud, so don't expect to have that serious convo with your mum here.

    It can get busy. I might have been lucky showing up there on a Friday at about 9:30 and able to find a table for two. When we called ahead to reserve they said to just show up cause it's easier to find tables for two since its group heavy mostly in here.

    It can be a tight squeeze. Low ceilings and close tables. Do not come here if claustrophobic.

    Goin back for the fondue. And cowbells.

    Austrian sing-a-long cowbell bar? Yes please! We had no idea what we were truly walking in to...
    Our first steps in we were greeted by a costumed waitress who sat us at a community table. A man behind the music booth was ringing his cowbells while the entire restaurant sang along to Edelweiss. We quickly stepped in line with our own huge hefeweizens and cheese fondue. The rest of the night was filled with many more libations and lots of singing. My favorite moment was the full out Bohemian Rapsody sung by every single person in the place! Classic.
    This is a "when in Rome" moment people! Don't be the Ebenezer in the corner refusing to sing.
    Cheesy, crazy and only for the seriously fun people of the world.

    Okay, now I am not still drunk I can write a full review. (Note: I do not encourage drunk Yelping!)

    Never before have I sat though a meal of liquid cheese and witnessed a full grown man in lederhos'n yodel the soundtrack to The Sound of Music. First with a Yamaha keyboard accompanying and later a saxophone. It was like I had been transported into a dream world and there was no escape.

    This is not German, it's Austrian, and it's pretty damn authentic too. I can't say enough good things about this place, I want to live here and bask in the glow of happiness it brings. You can't come here and not have a good night, bring a sense of humour, and it will be the best night of your life.

    My dinner at the Austrian restaurant Tiroler Hut between Paddington and Notting Hill Gate was one of the most enjoyable meals in recent months. It is a busy place, and I wanted to eat there before and could not get a table. But finally I managed to get in and it was a pleasure.

    I do not know why,  but everybody, guests and staff alike, seemed to be smiling and happy. For all I can tell, the nice little restaurant Tiroler Hut simply sports a great vibe. Most servers also speak German, so if you would like to buy your schnitzel in German, you can even do that.

    Starting with some bread and butter, my meal began rather average. Unfortunately, I was not in a wine mood that evening, but the wine list read quite promising. I will definitely get an Austrian white the next time I go there. For the main, I went off menu. I asked for a Wiener Schnitzel with spaetzle - you could probably describe it as a special kind of pasta - and gravy. When I ordered, I was a bit disappointed that they only serve pork an no veal. Anyway, it was worth going off menu. My main was really delicious. A good escalope, a delicate gravy and tasty spaetzle. You could argue that the spaetzle were a bit small, but I won't. They were good. That's it.

    Of course I could not skip the dessert. Continuing with the Austrian theme, I went for the Apfelstrudel. And what should I say, it was heavenly.

    Altogether, I had very good food and just a great time at Tiroler Hut. No doubt, I will come back. So far, this is probably the best German or Austrian restaurant I know in London.

    This is the place for fun as well as food . The apmosphere is brilliant !
    The food was nice enough. i had the peasant sausage which was all the different meats with a potato ball and sour krout [sic]  Very traditional and filling. The Steine of beer was heavy to lift but went down easily.
    We had a singalong to The sound of Music tracks which was in the middle of the diners where the owner/ singer/ is perched in his booth  This is all about the apmosphere, when you walk in the tiny entrance its low ceilings and straight away it feels different.  staff are dressed in traditional outfits. Friendly, happy, family business. The owner told us he has been there since 1967 and pointed out photos on the walls of his younger days and his daughters.
    I dont think you could come here and not have a great time. I loved it and cant wait for my next visit.

    I didn't try the espresso here because I was too busy drinking steins of beer and eating great Austrian bratwurst with kraut.

    Although I am not German or Austrian I've been told that the food here is as authentic as it gets. Regardless of it's authenticity, I can tell you that it's delicious, generous in portion size, and fun to eat.

    The owner cooks, sings (yodels) and entertains. He's the whole 9 yards. From outside, one could easily miss this place, so keep your eyes peeled when in the part of the world or you'll miss out on a must-have life experience, because that's what this place really offers beyond just great food.

    Linzi loves cheese, in more ways than one.

    So I loved this place. Unashamedly. I hope to have my wedding reception here. With a cheese cake, wearing a cheesecloth dress, celebrating with cheesetinis.

    No but really, it's cheese-tastic. You walk down the stairs and oh, you're transported to the Alps. All chalet wood, and cow bells, and chintz.

    We ordered fondue, of course. And sauerkraut. And meaty wurst type things. It was all amazing. We dipped everything on the table in the cheese, and sauerkraut was the best.

    Then the owner stepped behind the DJ booth (?) with an accordion and proceeded to lead us all in a sing along of Sound of Music tracks, yodelling and he played the sax too. Dinner and a show, bam!

    It's a bit expensive, but fondue always is. Totally worth a visit, go with friends, family, but not someone who takes themselves too seriously. It's cheese, you were warned.

    When runners train for marathons, they have a staggering distance of runs leading up to the real thing. I believe this training works well in other situations. For instance, in the weeks prior to going to Oktoberfest, you slowly increase the amount of beer that you are able to drink, so when you get to Germany, they don't think you are a puny little light weight.

    Well, the Tiroler Hut was the last big training session before the real thing. Started out with a pint, then headed straight for the stein. I now feel prepared for the main event this week. My body is ready, maybe not my liver, but the rest is good to go, thanks to the bier that flows here.

    The staff is extremely friendly and taught a few sayings to practice and use in Munich, while drinking.

    New Years Eve at the Tiroler Hut is determinately the best NYE I have ever had. I wasn't expecting much as many of the London restaurants have done a fine job of letting my husband and I down but the Tiroler Hut exceeded all expectations. On top of it, they did not allow anyone in the restaurant without a reservation. This kept the tiny restaurant open for people to dance and move around.

    Our table reservation was set for 8:30 and by reservation, I mean that was our table for the entire evening. The menu was set and while it wasn't sausages and potatoes as we had hoped, the food was good and was very filling. We will definitely return to try their standard menu.

    The service was great. The entertainment was even greater. My husband and I thought that we would eat dinner and leave about 10pm but the staff served the courses so slowly, we had only had our starter by 10pm. Usually I would bock at slow service but it was nice because there was so much food and the staff wanted you to stay, "get drunk slowly" and take in all the crazy entertainment.

    The restaurant is in a basement and the ceilings are extremely low. Anyone who has issues with small places will have a difficult time here. I felt like I was back at Oktoberfest with all the clanking of the glasses and sing alongs. I'd describe the entertainment as half lounge singing half karaoke. The lounge singer has been working at Tiroler Hut for over 50 years and then the karaoke singers that would take over while the lounge singer was on break seemed to be regulars. Like the "Ricardo" who was of Asian decent but claimed he was Italian and sang American songs.

    The crowd is mixed - young, old, and all of different cultures. The sing alongs to American songs and the Sound of Music soundtrack may seem corny to anyone who has not been to a true German bier garten or Oktoberfest but this is really how it is at Oktoberfest.

    My only regret is that I did not come dressed in a dirndl. It seemed as though half of the crowd was dressed in traditional German attire and I was jealous of them!

    The restaurant is kind of divided into two halves. The bar, small dining room, and toilets are on one half (the half you enter after coming down the stairs) and the other half is the main dining room. You will want to sit in the main dining room as this is where all the action takes place.

    Oh, and the coat check is free!

  • 5.0 star rating

    OK, corny as hell but certainly a memorable experience!

    We spent a ridiculously long time trying to find this place (damn you American smart phones not working in the UK) but once we did it was a definite highlight of our time in London.

    Go down a steep flight of stairs and through a doorway and suddenly you're transported to....somebody's basement? Yeah, this place is Austrian themed, but presumably executed by a bored housewife that was a bit too inspired by reruns of TLC decorating shows. It's like Austria threw up all over the walls.

    We go to the bar and get giant steins, of what type of beer I can't recall. We quickly tire of the bar as it's obvious all of the action is in the other room. We sat at a table, which didn't make the server happy - it would take us a while to work through those steins we payed for at the bar.

    What's that you say? Oompah band karaoke night? A boisterous, international crowd singing songs old and new? An Italian man of Asian descent singing German pop? How's THAT for a melting pot of cultures? We clang our beers, we dance with strangers, we have a blast!

    Up until now I was going to give this place a 4 star review. Then I remembered that the DJ played a medley of Boney M's greatest hits. That, my little Austrian friend, just earned you a 5th star.

    Yeah, I said it, FUN.

    I really didn't know what to expect when I saw the very narrow entry into the restaurant - down the stairs I went and all of a sudden I was transported into another place and time. The low ceilings, dark wood of the interior and the traditional outfits worn by the wait staff made me feel I was in Austria.

    So I figure Austrian food isn't know for being super vegetarian friendly, but this restaurant does it's best to accomodate. Some of the starters included Tomato and Mozzarella Salad, Avocado Vinaigrette and Gebackene Pilze (fried mushrooms in breadcrumbs). For mains there was Fusilli and Cheese Fondue. I'm not sure if that's a good representation of Austrian food, but I'll forgive.

    But food was only secondary to the experience (but I'm sure my meat eating companions begged to differ) - our waiter was funny, attentive and made us all smile and laugh. Then there's the music, which is mainly played in a small little booth in the main dining room. First there was a guy playing the keyboard for a bit, and then another guy came out to play the accordion for a few songs. Then he switched from accordion to clarinet. It was quite the treat, and it had folks swaying side to side in unison with the music.

    It's definitely the kind of place you'd want to go with a group of people to share in the food, fun and atmosphere (and of course, the beer too!).

    When you go make sure you check it is a night when they have the cow bell guy.  He is amazing.  Riccado Chop Sui (Chinese Italian Karaoke singer) is the other act and he's good too but if you have to choose I'd go for the cow bells.

    Great fun.  Not for vegetarians.   I counted 7 different types of eat on my platter.

    This place is good fun! The food is good enough and service is good. Beware if you're tall or claustrophobic though, this place has very low ceilings and has no windows.

    What will put a smile on your face though is the entertainment. You can tell that these musicians really enjoy what they do because they are always out there with a smile. In some way, this actually makes me enjoy their food despite it being overpriced and not the best German/Austrian food I've had.

    I love that everyone in the restaurant is dressed in traditional Austrian garb and serve beer in traditional steins. I recommend going to this place at least once.

    Stines of beer!
    Bratwurst and sauerkraut!
    MONKEY wine!
    Old Austrian man playing singing/playing keyboard!

    No way. This place is my new favourite. But watch out, this place is easy to miss as it is nestled away down a narrow staircase just off of busy Queensway. The decor of this restaurant is so awesome and lively from the second you step in at the bar, with red and white checkered table cloths and girls fully dressed in Bavarian beer outfits all around.

    Now don't come to this place thinking you are going to get a cheap meal. If you are coming for a main course, plan on spending a bit, especially if you are drinking as well. Splurge for the proper stine of beer and don't forget to try the house red Austrian wine with the monkey on the label. It is absolutely delish with the cheese founde. But let me tell you, the whole experience is well worth the money! With the Hungarian wine, cheese, and the Sound of Music Sing-a-long, I can't wait for the next time we all meet at the hut.

    This place is hysterical! Spent a CLASSIC evening that will long live in the memory (the little I do remember). 3 of us ran up a 300 quid bar tab  in 3 hours celebrating my impending departure from London and a mate's engagement. (Staff let us continue drinking (and indeed drank with us) as they closed upWorth every penny. Staff were great. Family that own the place didn't mind us shootering away in the bar and positively joined in the celebrations.

    A prior night, I came in with my wife... and she too LOVED it. Sausage, leiderhosen, beers, cowbells, singing, you get the drift. Food is pretty good, atmosphere always a BLAST, heartily recommend it for a rollicking good time (ie. go to get pissed).

    OMG.  We rocked tiroler hut.  Seriously.  ROCKED. IT.

    I had my reservations as to why Lizzie chose this place as off Yelp (i.e. in foodie magazines) I've read a lot of negative reviews about the food but our fondue was pretty good.  OK, so not as good as mine but you know, not everyone gets invited to chez vick's.  And Saucerkraut with cheese- totally sexual.  A Frankfurter quartered 1/2 way the long way round stuck on a ball of saucerkraut?  Honestly.  This place was like sex with a bowl of cheese minus the whole pain of human contact afterwards thing.

    I think the thing is, the food is about 3 stars but the decor and the singing man just made it really really good.

    As always, lovely to see people I know and great to meat people I haven't had the pleasure to meet yet.

    The Tiroler Hut is an Austrian Chalet themed restaurant in Bayswater. I've been twice, both for birthdays, and both times everyone I've been with has had a lot of fun.

    It's kind of an odd concept but it works surprisingly well. You go down some steps to get into the restaurant which is quite small and a little clasutrophobic. The restaurant itself looks exactly like a chalet with some murals and things on the walls. The staff are all dressed in traditional heidi-esque clothes.

    The food is largely sausage platters and that sort of thing, and you buy beer in steins (?) which hold about two and a half pints.

    All this would be enough on its own, but where the Tiroler Hut really comes into its own is with the incredible entertainment. The last time I went was for my sister's birthday. My sister and another birthday person had a cow bell ringing contest which was followed by the incredible musical stylings of Ricardo (an elderly Chinese man who looks a little like a duck): uk.youtube.com/watch?v=a…

    Incredible fun, particularly good for birthdays, though it is a little pricey.

    Tiroler Hut is good start to a night out, maybe better in a large group of people rather than for a date, as it tends to get noisy and a bit raucous. Then again, if your date likes that kind of thing

    Tiroler Hut does feel like an authentic Austrian restaurant; from the steins, to the decorations, to the fully kitted out waitrons. The food is pretty good too. Going in a large group, we opted for the party menu, which is quite good value for money. I had the bratwurst for starters and the wienerschnitzel for mains, which were both quite tasty, but nothing standout. The Apfelstrudel for dessert was quite decent as well, but not the best I've tried (that's reserved for some strudel I had from Innsbruck).

    I think where Tiroler Hut excels though, is the atmosphere. Between Joseph playing his accordion , singing contemporary hits (as well as his cowbells), the patrons being encouraged to sing along and the excellent and friendly service, you have the makings of a very fun night.

    On the night we went, it was apparently Josephs birthday (maybe every night is Josephs birthday? Maybe not.), so there were complimentary schnapps all around, at one particularly surreal moment, a good friend of Joseph and the restaurant gave us his very enthusiastic rendition of Queens Bohemian Rhapsody. This was 3 steins in, so perhaps it wasn't that surreal.

    Tiroler Hut has many fans, as evidenced by the various celebrity photographs they've got on various walls (Kate Moss has even made it onto the front page of their website), so I'm not alone in liking this place. Highly recommended.

    - excellent atmosphere
    - authentic steins (1 litre)
    - authentic fare
    - live and interesting music
    - unique experience
    - excellent service

    - food is not as amazing as you might expect from such a well reputed restaurant.
    - gets very busy (but contributes to atmosphere), so book in advance
    -not very vegetarian friendly

    This is one of my favourite restaurants, anywhere.  I don't know if I can convey why I love it in text.  It has good food, but you pay for it.  It has good German and Austrian beer, but nothing too unusual there.  Saxophones, lounge singers, and all sorts of awesome fun music?  No, but that is a factor.

    It is just always fun there.  I first went about 8 years ago, and I found myself there a lot back then.  Then a dry spell of not visiting London, followed by going there every time I can to check in and be sure it is still awesome.  It is.  

    I think why I might like it so, could be the friendly and fun atmosphere.  The family that owns the place really hosts you, and the staff is great.  The food really is delicious and the beer is well matched.  The entertainment is entertaining, without taking itself too seriously.  I think you should just get a group of your friends together and go there right now, relax, and have fun.

    The first London restaurant that I loved. Invited here for a friends birthday, I had no idea just how good the evening was going to be! The other reviewers have covered the basics, the excellent host and his accordion and his bells. Cracking entertainment and jolly atmosphere.

    I also really enjoyed the food here, it's not the kind of food that you find that often in London. Lots of sausages, lots of meat! There are veggie options though I think. Had a one of the best bottles of white wine I've ever had hereand it has to be good to keep me away from a good old Stein of beer.

    The price is a bit above average, which is to be expected given the experience. This means I tend to reserve it for special occasions.

    If you want a fun night with a group of people, this is the place.
    It's like a little piece of Austria has been flown into London!
    All the food is authentic Austrian fare, (think Bratwurst, Gulash, Saerkraut or Strudel) and the fun part is they serve traditional Austrian beer in steins!
    At some point in the night, the old host Joseph will come out in his lederhosen and play the cowbells, and sometimes will let you come up to help him yodel. As bizarre as it all sounds, it is so much fun, and certainly like no other place in London.
    Best to book in advance, however, as this place is popular.

    I came here with my work group on a weeknight.  There were 14 of us -so you're bound to have a good time when that many people are drinking such massive beers!

    The food was awful, I don't think anyone enjoyed their meal.  But, I also don't think you come to the Tiroler Hut for the food!  The atmosphere is a lot of fun and the entertainment was great.  There were several people dressed up at other tables in traditional Austrian garb which was quite funny.

    I would definitely recommend this for a large group be it a birthday, or just because.  Would be a lot of fun if everyone dressed up as well.  I'd say its good to make a reservation as the restaurant seemed fully booked with a few large parties

    First to Review

    You will never have a bad night out at Tiroler Hut. It's like being in Eurovision and having some of the best cooked food at the same time.

    This isn't a Tirolean-themed restaurant; it is a Tirolean experience. The staff are the friendliest in London by a mile, purely because they love doing what they do, which is, night on night, entertain and delight their guests (customers).

    Although I've never managed it, it's a great place for celeb-spotting, as the walls are adorned with photos of Kate Moss, Hugh Grant and other famous residents of west London. The mood is always jovial, and it often does feel like your at a friend of a friend's house.

    The food is amazing- if you like meat. A meat platter is more than enough to satisfy even the largest of appetites and I've been told the fondue for 2, though highly alcoholic, is a great option for vegetarians.

    If you are going, it is advisable to ring to check they can seat you on the day if not before, as it is a tiny place. However, they will seat and feed you after midnight, which is quite a rarity in London.

    The entertainment has to be seen to be believed, but I won't spoil too much other than to say karaoke, cowbells and charisma.

    Bauernschmaus mit Schnapps (meat board) £12.90; 2 pint stein around £6; Gulash Soup (recommended) £4.60.

    The Tiroler Hut is a hidden gem in London. On Westbourne Grove but quite easily missed as it is a doorway leading to a cellar bar and restaurant.

    You are better off going in a group but it is an absolutely brilliant night out. The restaurant is a 'typical' Austrian place where you get served German/Austrian beer in Stein Glases (equals 1 litre of beer, nearly 2 pints!). The food is also typical Austrian/German with dumplings etc - all tastes very nice and is served really quickly.

    There is entertainment throughout the evening and halfway through the owner starts singing Austrian country songs in a mixture of German and English - if you are lucky he also plays his cow bells. It is absolutely hilarious and the atmosphere is excellent.

    Most definitely delicious. I experienced the Chef's special, employed the waiters professional recommendation , and wrapped up off together with a gorgeous soft serve ice cream dish .
    Classic cooking, serviced in an unassuming dining facility without a significant amount of fuss. The meat definitely speaks by itself, and though vegetarians effectively unearth their choice quite limited, it's a carnivore's ecstasy. A lot of business-types here on a week day the afternoon meal, but the environment was still being fairly casual.
    Provider was warm, attentive and looked at as without getting pushy or stuffy. Will completely return to try some top even more bold recipes

    This place is pure cheese, and it has great fondue to boot. This absolutely silly Austrian place is a little pricey, but it's a bargain when you factor in the entertainment you're paying for. Unless you are a true curmudgeon, this place will make you happy. From the keyboard to the man who plays the bells to the Chinese Italian lounge singer, this place is a lot of fun, and a good place for a group. Oh, and really, really big beers are available. After one of those, you'll be singing along.

    When the dinner here was planned, i was positively unable to figure out where the place was. I had been to Westbourne Grove many many times. How do i not know of this restaurant ? It was a similar story when i actually arrived. It took me some time to find the narrow stairway that lead from the side-walk to the dining area at the basement.
    There is a small bar and a couple of rooms down there. The Austro-Hungarian owners have been operating it since 1967. The food is very very good. I have been unable to find good German food in London and i have always had a liking for the cuisine since the time i lived in Germany.
    For starters i ordered a selection of sausages. They were served cut in small pieces and were delicious. There was also a black pudding sausage piece in there. I didn't know that the Germans also like this "bloody" preparation. I also tried a bit of fondue from my friend. It was nice but probably not as good as the one i had in Switzerland last month.
    I had pork schnitzels with noodles (remember sound of music ... my favourite things ?). The schnitzel was different from what i remembered from so many years ago ... but thats probably just got to do with my bad memory. The meat was outstanding. The noodles were tasteless ... but they are not supposed to be had on their own anyway. It was a meat feast on the table ... from goulash to huge brackwursts to frankfurters split on the top used as decoration on a dish ... it was a remarkable sight to behold :)
    I washed it all down with a small weisbier (where small in german means 500ml). Others went for the full 1 litre Oktoberfest style jugs.
    Towards the end of dinner the owner (Joseph) came and sang for the customers .... and guess which were the only ones i recognised ? Sound of Music of course. He is a wonderful guy and talked with all of us. This wasn't a place where i was expecting live music ... so it was an added positive.
    The only drawback of Tiroler's Hut is that the prices are steep. The starters are between £6-£8 and the main courses cost ~£15. Its very easy to get your bill up to £30 per person. But that won't prevent me from coming here with my friends again ... its a wonderful place to celebrate ... anything :)

    Was here last week for dinner and was blown away by the fantastic atmosphere. Imagine being invited to an Austrian wedding reception in the 70s and you'll get the idea. Clarinet and saxaphone numbers played by a crazy uncle who requires you to sing along! Food is nothing amazing but is good solid stick to your ribs fare. Can't go wrong with the Mushrooms Tiroler Hut to start- warm mushrooms, bacon and toasted walnuts.  Bratwurst and smoked pork are hot and servicable. The sauerkraut is studded with speck and the mustard and horseradish are both strong and nose-tingling. Massive steins of beer and schnapps keep things sociable. I had a great night!

    Nothing special yet perfect for a night out of drinkin with your friends. A great starting point for some pub crawling as well. Just bare in mind that is is really easy to miss it so keep your eyes open because it is really a gem in the heart of London. A nice little feature that grabbed my attention from day one was the fact that they offer Austrian beer which is absolutely delicious.

    The music is really interesting there. Also the atmosphere is welcoming. I'm not going in the restaurant often, because of the lack of free time. Your meals will be served really quickly. I remember that I went there without a reservation and this was pretty cool and convenient.

    I haven't been to the Tiroler Hut for years, but the fact it's still going strong is a sign of it's uniqueness. It really is like walking into a proper Austrian restaurant for a spot of apres ski fun after a day on the slopes. Waiters in lederhosen and a man who plays clever tunes with cow bells is just part of the fun. The food is ok, the kind of smorgasbord of sauerkraut and sausage you'd expect, with a great strudel for pud. Fun for parties or just a few friends to knock back the schnappes on a chilly winter's evening.

    My German boyfriend took me here for dinner and I had an awesome goat cheese salad with pine nuts and strudel for dessert. I was impressed, but be prepared to spend like three hours for dinner.

    Nice venue and food. Had amazing time with some friends there. It was a lot of fun! Service is also good so I'll recommend if you want to try different West European cuisine.

    It is a charming little place with a huge character! The sheer experience of the atmosphere is worth a visit in my opinion! The service is fantastic the waitresses are friendly and helpful there are entertainments while you dine. Everyone seem to know each other you are almost dining at someone's home instead of a restaurant!

    Hard to find, but worth it! Down in a basement, Josef performs Tirolian music for you, hopefully you'll be lucky enough to be there when he plays the bells! Great Austrian food and drink as well!

    The Tiroler Hut is the place to go if you want a very unique night out. Hidden away in a basement near Bayswater, the Tiroler Hut is West London's best-kept secret. It's an Austrian bar/restaurant with a late licence. The food is mostly meat-based, so don't take your vegetarian friends, and is probably best enjoyed after you've downed a few Austrian beers. The highlight of the evening is the cowbell cabaret performed by the bar's lederhosen-clad owner Josef. He also entertains throughout the night, singing songs and accompanying himself on the accordion and electric organ. His repertoire ranges from The Sound of Music to Cher. Guests can join in if the mood takes them, but don't expect Josef to play the correct chords on the organ when you're singing your party-piece. I think I got up and sang The Lonely Goatherd once, but that memory is hazy
