What You Can Expect

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

Enter the hilarious world of 'Fawlty Towers' at the fully interactive Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

Make your own way to the luxurious Amba Hotel Charing Cross and take a seat amid the resplendent interior of the Torquay Suite Theatre. Prepare for a hilarious dining experience in homage to the beloved British sitcom, Fawlty Towers, written by comedy legends John Cleese and Connie Booth.

Head to the catastrophic Basil’s Bar to enjoy a pre-dinner drink (own expense) and begin to chuckle as you see hotel proprietor, Basil, haphazardly running around while trying to micromanage foolish waiter Manuel.

Take a seat and plunge into the comical antics of the actors as the improvised afternoon or evening of Fawlty Towers sketches unravels before your eyes. Laugh heartily in between courses of prime English specialties; savor the rich flavor of dishes like spiced carrot and fennel soup, and chicken with tarragon mash and fresh vegetables.

With a full stomach and content heart, ‘check out’ of the Torquay Suite and continue your day with a smile on your face.

We had a great time, much better than I had thought. The lunch was really nice, the entertainment was non stop, witty, lively and the actors really embraced their iconic roles. What a lovely way to spend a wet Sunday afternoon. If you loved Fawlty Towers you will love this.

Spot-on acting and comedic timing brings the dysfunctional staff of Fawlty Towers absolutely to life. Taking place upstairs in the Amba Hotel at Charing Cross, it's easy to get to from anywhere in London and the bar next to the theater opens early. There are also the complimentary drinks in the Faulty Towers Bar which doubles a cloak-room, and this is where the show actually begins. There isn't a dress code but be aware that if you dress too casually as I apparently did, Basil is sure to make you the butt of his sarcastic humor before the show moves to the dining room. Once he gets you in his sights, and you prove clever and a good sport, he will return to you time and time again. Basil and Manuel work the room continuously, creating one mushrooming mishap after another and involving everyone in the act, sometimes to their dismay. Sybil acts to change the energy between all of the classic skits and excels as the foil for Basil, who is obviously terrified of her steely gaze, shrill voice and snorting laugh. Food and drink flow freely, sometimes ending up on the guest, but it's all great fun and the crowd we attended with laughed uproariously throughout the performance. The food was entirely acceptable, especially for such a show, but the entertainment provided was unparalleled in it's execution and these actors deserve much credit for their performances.

The actual show was great, although booked through Viator and our names were not on the list when we got there so we nearly lost out. Luckily the actual cast managed to accommodate us. Very funny. We had 3 generations with us and all would like to go again

I dont want to spoil any jokes, but this was a very funny evening, with all actors wonderfully bringing to life a typical disasterous dinner in fawlty towers. The food is also fine! If there is a vagatarian around you will get some special attention from Basil...

During my annual trip from the US to England last year I went to see the Faulty Towers Dinner Show. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to go again this year, however, this time I took a niece and her husband. They come down to London for a day visit and this made a great venue. This is a fantastic must see show.

It is so sad that we have lost Andrew Sachs. He was such a fine actor in the series. However, the actor who plays Manuel in the Dinner Show is so good that he could be Andrews twin.

the cast were superb and brought Fawlty Towers to life. We all cheered their final bows.
