I had visited a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed the authenticity, effort and fun that went into these productions and meals. It is trite to say that 'health issues' caused the decay of the fun factor and some problems associated with the business, but...More

Found a Groupon offer and decided to give it a go-the husband and I enjoyed the night! The show was very good, and I love that everything offered is researched to be as historically accurate as possible. The beer offerings were excellent. The sword fighting...More
