See the world’s leading tribute to the BBC’s Fawlty Towers TV series at Faulty Towers The Dining Experience, two hours of brilliant fun in the heart of London’s theater land. Head to the Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Hotel and enjoy a unique theatrical script, lightning-quick improvisation, and a 3-course lunch or dinner – not to mention shocking service and hilarious theatrical scenes.
  • See Faulty Towers The Dining Experience, a hilarious, internationally acclaimed show
  • Be transported back to the 1970s with this homage to the British BBC TV series Fawlty Towers
  • Meet Basil, Sybil and the lovable waiter Manuel, and enjoy a fully interactive comedy experience
  • Enjoy a 1970s-inspired 3-course meal, served by the characters
  • Have a pre-show drink in Basil’s Bar before your choice of lunch or dinner performance
Make your own way to Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Hotel and check in to the ‘Torquay Suite Theatre.’ Prepare for a hilarious dining experience created in homage to Fawlty Towers, the beloved British sitcom written by comedy legends John Cleese and Connie Booth.

Arrive early for a drink in Basil’s Bar (own expense). The mayhem starts when hotel proprietor Basil comes on the scene to try to micromanage Manuel, the long-suffering, much-loved waiter from Barcelona. Happily, Basil’s wife Sybil is on hand to ensure that both he and Manuel are brought under control just enough to announce the seating plan.

The antics of the actors unfold as you eat, with this comedy playing out around you. Laugh as you dine and savor the flavor of dishes like rich tomato and basil soup, roasted chicken with seasonal vegetables, and sumptuous chocolate mousse cake for dessert.

Please note that Faulty Towers The Dining Experience portrays the spirit of the Fawlty Towers TV characters and the atmosphere they create, but the performers are impersonators and the show has no connection to the BBC, nor to John Cleese, Connie Booth, or their TV scripts.


All performances include a set 3-course meal:

First course
Rich tomato and basil soup with home-baked bread rolls and butter.

Second course
Roasted chicken with roasted potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables.

Luxury double-chocolate mousse cake.

Please note: This is a sample menu, subject to change. Vegetarian and special diet meals can be booked in advance.

Fautly Towers was set in a Torquay Hotel where comedy events took place. This Experience took place in a depressing dark grey room used for corporate conferences with NO attempt made to add any ambiance to the scene. It was like attending a play with no scenery. Maybe a few Torquay posters and pictures, the odd plastic plant would have set the scene, how about some awful hotel canned music during the pre - amble - probably too much trouble!

We therefore sat down in this dreary room to be entertained by three look alike actors who, with the exception of Sybil seemed incapable of leaving the script and involving the audience a few attempts were made but highly scripted and never impromptu. Where Manuel standing on a table singing Via Espana fitted in is anyones guess!

The script was laboured and not the anticipated fast moving comedy we had expected.

The concept is fabulous but lets look at details and make this a proper Production. Very amateurish and not worth anything like the amount charged. I felt so disappointed, I also felt insulted by the don't care attitude of the production team, i.e. turn up, do it, go home!

The food was nicely cooked and well presented by the hotel staff

My wife and I rounded off a long weekend break in London with a much anticipated visit to the 'Faulty Towers dining experience ' staged at the Bloomsbury Hotel. Delighted to say this did not disappoint with two hours of madcap antics and fun delivered by a very clever trio of professional actors in the guise of Basil and Sybil Faulty and the the hapless Spanish waiter, Manuel.
Together they did a great job of blending together and re-creating many sketches and scenarios from the iconic TV series - bringing hilarity to the proceedings and very skillfully picking on some of the attending diners to take part. Any fears that this could be overbearing or intrusive was immediately allayed because it was clear they knew, instinctively, who to 'pick on' without causing offence. And because this was staged in London with a very broad spread of overseas 'diners' in the room it brought even greater authenticity to 'Basil's' loony dialogue and manic behaviour. Full marks to the guy who played Manuel, because he really could have come from Barceloooona my wife was delighted when he crept up behind her to show her his hamster !!! And Sybil was as formidable as expected - a delightful battleaxe reigning over a room of slamming doors, flying bread rolls and chaotic service.
Our verdict: Great fun, lots of belly laughs and very professionally produced.
And two extra bonuses - the food was good and the other four guests on our table , who we only met on the night, were very nice, interesting company.
Our only disappointment is that photography was banned at the event and, at the start of proceedings it did say that a company photographer would be on hand to take and provide pictures to guests who wanted to buy them. This didn't happen and it's a shame because we would have liked to share the fun with friends - and heartily recommend the 'Faulty experience.'
