      This was a fun extra time filling experience. Family style dining and good entertainment. The food isn't bad either.

      Bob_M, Jul 2018
      While the asmosphere was geed, I was disappointed that the drinks you were allowed were only those served at the table and you had to pay exrta for anything other than those provided. The food was pub grub and the entertainment was below what was expected. Would have been better off doing something ourselves or going to another stage show in Covet Gardens. Disappointed

      Bonnie H, Jun 2018
      This is good entertainment but you are not in one open room, as other medieval banquets I've attended, have been. So you have several tables but you can't see them. I think this takes away from the experience.

      Pargotan_L, Mar 2018
      Best thing about the night was walking in , but after that it wasnt very authentic , tacky costumes that you have to pay for, services good and quick that said everything felt like a time schedule , food was nice but there just seemed to be the minium of everthing Ale, Bread etc and the wine was cheap plonk not really a banquette feeling , just didnt feel Medieval all they did was sing all night to piano background No Torchlight to be seen all in all,not authentic at all.

      Great fun all round - Entertainment was very well done but would suggest stop using piano accompaniment as there were no pianos in medieval times! Highly recommended

      Nancy M, Nov 2017
      Fun, fun, fun. This as a whimsical night after a busy day. We enjoyed the food and entertainment, wore our own crowns and met people from other parts of the world. A fabulous night! Will probably do this again, if we return to London. There was great singing, acrobatic acts, and jousting. We wore out crowns back to the hotel, taking the Tube. Londoners were fanatic, bowing to us and making cute comments about the king and queen. We responded with the classic wave and had a great experience!

      Fun time. The restaurant is dark and dank, situated underground. I suppose that adds to the atmosphere...? The actual performances and food were very enjoyable though. My teenage kids even liked it.

      Cullen M, Mar 2017
      The staff was very accommodating, as not realizing that the day we had booked started earlier then the other days of the week. We were late, however were able to get there just in time for the main course and as mentioned all the staff were very friendly and helpful. What could have been a lost evening turned into a wonderful time. Thank you to all who assisted.

      David_I, Jan 2017
      The entertainment was excellent. However we were packed in like sardines and many people only had a snapshot of the entertainers. The food was adequate but the beer and wine horrible. There was the option of buying a decent bottle.

      Shayami_V, Jan 2017
      Initially there was a confusion with our booking and the table was set for only 3 and there were four of us but it was resolved quite quickly. The entertainment was really good. Food was alright. As it was my daughters 16th birthday I had requested that they make it a bit special for her that evening. Even though I called and they confirmed it was noted, nothing special was done for her. That was a bit disappointing. Other than that we had an enjoyable evening.

      Brynn B, Jul 2016
      Was the event touristy? Yes, was this event fun? Absolutely! The 'wenches', knights and performers stayed true to character and were very entertaining. The food was simple and delicious. The bottomless carafe of wine they provided at every communal table probably had something to do with people from all over the world letting down their guard to engage in conversation, laughs and even dancing at the end. Probably our favorite tour of the trip. Even my 22 year old hard to please daughter loved it. Highly recommend if you just go with the flow and not take it too seriously .

      Mark W, Jul 2016
      Tour? You mean the bus ride around the city with cheap head phones and low quality audio? Tour implies someone would be speaking, providing information, pointing out features as we pass, it does not imply headphones and audio that couldn';t be understood. Not happy. Do NOT recommend.

      Amazing staff, servers, entertainment, food and drink! But when we arrived to the venue to check in, they didn't have our reservation for 4 guests. The manager apologized for the confusion and made sure we had great seats! I'd highly recommend this AND also bring your voucher too!
