The banquet was absolutely fantastic and worth every penny. The entertainment was superior.
Went to the medieval banquet for my husbands 40th birthday, with some friends. We had a fantastic evening the food was great and plenty of it. The entertainment was good and the wenches were friendly and helpful. The wine and beer was not up to much but the bar was open so you can go and buy your own if wanted. But we thought it was a great night and well worth going.
Had a great time - plenty of food and wine. Very good value.
This was great fun! You get to meet those around you who are from other places in England or other countries. The staff do a wonderful job engaging everyone. We had a great time!
A very nice evening with unusual entertainment. The food was good but the meal seemed a little drawn out. Very relaxed atmosphere in Ivory House and a pleasurable walk around Canary Wharf.
Had a fantastic night the food was ok but the show made up for everything
We really enjoyed this tour. We had a little difficulty finding the location so maybe better directions are in order. The food wasn't too bad and we enjoyed the unlimited wine. Afterwards we stayed for the disco dancing which was a lot of fun.
Great meal and show, but bummed when they were unable to find our reservations even though I had the confirmation. Would go again.
This is a fun, family-friendly event in a cool location. Note: includes bottomless wine and beer, and the festivities get louder with the consumption level. Don't go expecting a great culinary experience, as the food is ok. Entertainment is fun, and they do a great job trying to please everyone.
Cannot remember when I have had more fun! The staff did everything to make you feel at home and were really enthousiastic. The food was nice, though not culinary of course. There is more than enough and the vegetarian option is also very good! The entertainment was simply wonderful. I expected something much less professional. The 'actors' were great!! Disco afterwards was nice, though more for younger people.
Only minor point: the building was not that easy to find and the directions could be better. Take your time to get there and you will love it!
Price could be a bit lower, though drinks are included.
We had a really nice time at the banquet. It's unfortunate that we were seated with people who didn't speak English, and of course we didn't speak any Russian. The food was very good (especially the bread) and the entertainment was enjoyable. Would definitely consider doing this on the next trip to London, and would recommend to anyone who hasn't been there. Lots of fun and merriment for sure.
dinner was excellent, the show wasn't what we expected but was a great and happy surprise.
This was such a great night and experience. The beverages were plentiful - the meal very satisyfying and the entertainment extremely enjoyable. A great venue for a group/family who want an evening full of fun and comraderie.
Great hospitality. Greeted warmly at the door and escorted to seating. They moved the assignment of additional family members (booked separately and under different last name) to be seated with us. Very accommodating. Food was not great, entertainment was acceptable, atmosphere was fun and enjoyable. A group of people across the area were complaining about everything, and staff tried hard to meet their requests/demand but appeared unable to do so. We met our hostess at the bus stop following dinner and she conversed with us on the bus until she got off at her stop. Very pleasant and helpful. Good experience overall.
Had a fabulous time at the banquet,the food was filling and deliciious, the wine was plentiful, the entertainment fun and we sat next to people from Denmark- all in all a great night
Had a fantastic time. Kids really enjoyed it and lots of good memmories of the evening.
We had a very enjoyable evening and met some wonderful people. It was a lot of fun -- you can even rent costumes there to wear for the evening.
It was a lovely evening. The entertainment was enjoyable, and the food was good and plentiful. The only downside was that the directions for getting to the banquet were confusing.
The entertainment and food was fabulous. The draught left alot to be desired. I know it is included in all you can drink and eat, but if it is as watered down as it was, forget it. The wine was good but would hope the beer would be less watered down, I know it is free but that just means it is covered in the original cost and would make the evening a full 100 enjoyment instead of "watered" down.
