Come and join a noble medieval court for a fulsome feast amidst the light of flickering torches. Let the minstrels entertain thee with a song of great deeds that doth bewitch thine ears with much joy. (Sorry about that... but that is how they actually speak.)

This regal medieval banquet will take place in a vaulted cellar in St. Katharine Dock (close to Tower Bridge), where you will be entertained by gallant knights and strolling minstrels singing and strumming ye olde ballads, whilst comely wenches serve up hearty meals and frothing tankards of ale. (Once again, please accept our apologies, but that is how they actually spoketh in ye olden days.)

During the evening you will meet a cast of colorful characters from English history including the terrifying King Henry VIII (make sure he doesn't eat all the food), who will provide your family with song and laughter whilst you scoff your four-course meal, and quench your thirst with tankards of ye frothy ale. Expect plenty of dancing and banging of fists on the table as well!

The Medieval Banquet is a theatrical dinner experience for the whole family. It's primarily aimed at adults, but they do welcome kids as well. You'll get over 2 hours of themed entertainment, including speciality acts like knights, jesters, strongmen, contortionists and magicians, musicians and singers. Costumes will be available for hire if you really want to get into the spirit of it, or you can just buy yourself a medieval-themed hat. If you've already got a suit of armour at home then feel free to wear it. [A note for the shy guests: You don't have to join in the singing and dancing if you don't want to. Lots of people will, but you can simply sit there and eat and your meal and watch the entertainment if you prefer.]

Here's the Banquet Menu (subject to change):
Vegetable soup made daily with market vegetables; A platter of meat, pate and cheddar cheese with salad and pickled vegetables; Roasted chicken in a traditional medieval sauce served with roast potatoes and roasted vegetables; A rich fruit-filled pie served with cream

And here's the vegetarian option (on request):
Vegetable soup made daily with market vegetables; Tomato and mozzarella tower with baby exotic leaves and balsamic reduction; Roasted butternut squash filled with a root vegetable and butterbean casoulet topped with cheddar cheese; A rich fruit-filled pie served with cream

Be aware that show only runs between Wed-Sun, and books up quite quickly. You can't just turn up on the day. It's best to book a meal 2-3 weeks in advance.
