First off, we got there and it says drinks are all included, what they don't tell you is that you have to PAY for your drinks for the first 60-75 minutes of the night. RIP OFF! Then there was no Henry VIII, which it even has featured on brochure. So what was there? Horrible food and bad singing!
We were somewhat disappointed, first our name was not on the list so we did not have a reserved table, and the remainder the evening we found the service to be less than adequate and the food just ok. The entertainment was also disappointing and not enough to fil the otherwise dead air.
Our family was disappointed in the banquet. The sound system was so loud that it blasted our ears. Also, the court announcer's voice was often muffled, so we could not understand what he was saying. The entertainers were not very talented.
London was my 4th Medieval banquet. I expected much more in London and was very dissatisfied. Lines formed outside at 7:45, then we were herded like cattle into very crowded seats, offered pitchers of unpalatable cider. The soup and main dinner were delicious! That was only saving grace. However, there were no singers and the entertainment was so-so.
