Owner description: Touring over 20 countries a year and with a permanent London West End residency too, this critically acclaimed show has been winning five-star reviews and standing ovations since 1997. It's 'a two-hour eat, drink and laugh sensation!' (Daily Telegraph). The fun starts as the audience wait to be seated and then hurtles along as they become diners in that infamous hotel. Meanwhile, Basil, Sybil and Manuel aspire to be their warring waiters, serving a 3-course meal with a good dollop of mayhem. This is fully immersive, highly improvised, site-specific comedy theatre at its best - and because only a third of show is scripted, performances are always fresh. Expect all the best gags and 'a rip-roaringly hilarious night out' (This Is London). Just don't mention the war! - 'Outstanding! (Fringe Review) - 'Uniquely enjoyable... A worthy alternative to some of the West End's other shows... It will have you raving' (Britain Magazine) - 'Deliciously entertaining from start to finish, this is not to be missed.' (What's on London) - 'Fantastic!' (What's on Stage)

I booked this as something different for my sisters hen do and on the day I was anxious that it may be a total flop..... How wrong I was!!! All 11 of us, different ages and varying knowledge of the original sitcom, cried laughing from the moment the actors entered the pre-show bar area. A perfect evening of entertainment, laughter, food and also moments to talk amongst ourselves as you would in a "normal" restaurant. Stunning venue, fabulous service, and painfully funny. A Unique experience.

“Quite a hoot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

This was good fun. John Cleese etc weren't there and it's unrealistic to expect actors to be identical to the iconic stars of this show. However, I thought they made a good job of capturing the feel of the show.
There was some chaotic action before and during the dinner which was all great fun. I really didn't know what was coming next.
I enjoyed this and have recommended it to friends.

“One of the highlights of our trip to London!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

We booked this based on trip advisor reviews from other travelers. We weren't even aware that there used to be a show on TV starring John Clease! We took our kids ages 19, 16, and 14. We all agree it was one of the highlights of our trip and we still are quoting lines and laughing about that evening.
