. Entertainment not for children under 16. I did ask should I bring 14 year kids with, yes certainly, was the answer to this... Rude sexist - under the belt entertainment from the entertainer. My daughter was expected to tuck a bib into the pants of a grown man. SHE DID NOT DO THIS..
. Dinner was extremely expensive per person. For 8 people we were given 2 small baby chickens and RAW vegetables (under "Al dente"). A pie with bland broccoli AND ice cream.. The soup was nice.
NO SALT is part of the show. UPON ASKING FOR SALT WE WERE RELUCTANTLY GIVEN LESS THAN A 1/4 TEASPOON FULL. needless to say, the food went back UNEATEN. .
. THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE COSTED ME JUST SHORT OF R4000-00 excluding fuel. MOST CERTAINLY A NO-GO.

Medieval setting, with medieval characters, decor, language and clothing.

Besides the experience of being transported to the past, there is plenty of entertainment, food and drink.

The food is limited to a large roast plus a starter, but the craft beer menu and 2l jugs will keep you busy and having a jolly good time.

The get to pick from a large wardrobe of outfits to wear.

The host is brilliant but beware the content is very much of an adult nature (to fit in with the theme) so kids, feminists and other sensitive groups may be offended.

The emcee/host made homophobic, outdated and disgusting jokes that ruined my night. After driving an hour to get there and spending my (gay) dollars on this business, it was unconfortable, unfunny and humiliating to hear discourse that bordered on gay shaming and bashing. This kind of humor has no place in this day and age. I left the restaurant halfway through dinner furious and humiliated. I would recommend not supporting this homophobic establishment.

What an exciting night out. We chose the best venue to celebrate Edwards birthday. The night begins when you change into your medieval attire, you have so many great options to choose from. The service and entertainment was great, the host was funny and engaging.

It's best to enjoyed with a group of friends, not ideal for a date.

What a blast! The most fun we had in a long time. Great food, excellent craft beers and a master of ceremonie-Baron- had us in stitches.
We were even king and queen for the evening. You have to dress up though. All the different costumes. Felt like going back in time, From the costumes to the decor to to wenches!
Highly recommended for any function or party.
