A great experience. We all enjoyed the acting and food. Shame Polly had not be there
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...
Hilarious from start to finish, great actors and the 70's style dinner was very good.
Real scream Basil, Sybil and Manuel in top form they all worked very hard and it was an excellent Birthday surprise !!
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.
Excellent experience, even for a solo traveller. My table partners were not particularly fun to be with but with all the chaos from Basil and Manuel it didn't matter. I enjoyed the experience and the food. It's a lovely setting for the dinner and I would certainly recommend other travellers to give it a go.
This was an excellent night and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend to anybody who had seen the series as it is very much based on the TV series. Brilliant!
Really fun night out, actors were amazing
Food was standard but hot, well cooked and filling.
It really was as bizarre as the TVs series and would definitely go again
An hilarious dinner. It is in a lovely hotel so wear something nice. The dinner was delicious. What fun.
If you are a Faulty Towers fan, you must do the dining experience. We laughed, and laughed out loud! Had a fun time with the others at our table...and had a great meal too. I highly recommend it! My only problem was finding the venue, and thus arrived late. Suggest an address is added to the information. Just saying the Strand is not enough for us out-of-towners.
This is a wonderful way to spend an evening in London if one is a John Cleese / Faulty Towers fan! The actor who played Manuel the evening I attended the show was excellent!
A couple of details - the actual hotel is NOT very helpful - you have to wander around a bit of find the banquet room. This is apparently a big celebration destination for Brits wedding anniversaries, milestone birthdays etc. so be prepared for larger groups that are often so busy celebrating they can overwhelm the actors.
Brilliant!! 4 of us went and it was a constant laugh! I would highly recommend this to anyone who has ever seen faulty towers!
This is a MUST SEE. One of the best shows that i have been to in London. I think our table laughed literally from start to finish. The actors fully engage the audience throughout the show. Will be going again next time I visit London
Absolutely fabulous, funny, entertaining and we loved every minute. Food was excellent along with the false teeth in my soup! Manuel was hilarious, just loved the acting and interaction with diners.
