I was not sure what to expect when I received a gift voucher for this place. After a short wait to get in, we were shown to table with a number of other people where information cards explained what house you belonged to. Thankfully we had a good crowd on our table which made the evening a lot of fun.... More

If you have an ounce of negativity in your mind before trying this place then that will be the outcome.Go with a positive attitude and don't believe in some of the less flattering reviews and you will have a ball.Needless to say we had a tremendous evening.No we were not sitting in the areas where you could see every bit...

We've been to many medieval feasts in the states. The food and drink at this "show" were all substandard, the entertainment was good, but the quality of the food and wine were not good. Given the cost, we didn't get the value. We would rather have went for a nice dinner and one of the plays in the theater district... More

A very authentic evening of food, wine and entertainment. Venue was perfect. Service by the wenches was 1st class! Henry the VIII had an amazing voice and the acrobats were brilliant. What a fab night out for all ages. Dressing up made it more fun too.

As others have said, the success of the night does possibly depend on your seating position. You really do need to be on the front couple of rows of the dining table in the 'niche'. Plenty of decent food and pleasant 'ale' available, as much as you want really and all included in the price. The entertainers put on a... More

The whole experience was very good but we did have a front row seat so we were able to see all the entertainment as it happened. The food was equally good but the wine was awful, it was very 'vinegary' you are better off buying a nice bottle at the bar instead. However it is definitely worth a visit if... More

This was great value for money, especially with a groupon. There is a set meal with four massive courses, each very tasty. After reading other reviews, we went in thinking the food would just be low quality grub, but were pleasantly surprised! Banquet provides unlimited ale and wine, which were much better than expected - drinks didn't appear to be... More

Knowing we'd be a weekend in London, we thought we'd take part in some sort of a Medieval experience. The only one we could find was the Medieval Banquet. The price was way too steep to pay in full, and we bought a wowcher (which was a good thing besides the admission price, I'll explain in a bit), for 69... More

A cosy place where you can spend a delightful evening in a typical ancient atmosphere. You can eat and drink enjoying old medieval songs or acrobats. Be prepared to rent a traditional costume (10 pounds) and take some pictures.
