Following a joint Hen/Stag night earlier in the year we were already aware of the "Festive Medieval Banquet" that would be held in December and booked accordingly.
We were not disappointed. From the moment we checked in we were met by very friendly staff and quaint rooms that were in keeping with the whole castle/olde worlde theme.
Real open fires made you feel at home and warmed you up on a chilly evening.The whole Medieval experience is a must if you've never been to one before, to be wined & dined by "wenches" and enjoy the atmosphere of an era long forgotten. You are quickly transformed back to a time where food, wine/mead and merryment were the focus of every evening, something which is very well captured by the staff at Lumley that put 110% into their work.
With 5 courses, continual mead/wine and in house entertainment during your banquet, what's not to like. Throw in the option of medieval costume and you could easily lose yourself from the stresses & strains of modern day living allowing you to step back in time & enjoy a fantastic evening.
A word of caution though, whilst "daggers" were being used back then, knives, forks & spoons were not, so fingers are the order of the day.
This is a truly unforgettable evening that can be enjoyed by all age groups, family & friends or works parties.
