When I suggested the Medieval Banquet for our department Christmas party, I thought for sure the Brits would scoff and laugh. They did laugh, but I think they were more intrigued. Where else can you get unlimited beer and wine, a 4 course dinner served by a wench and a show on a limited budget?
Take a trip back in time to the court of Henry VIII and enjoy a feast of historic proportions. Enjoy a regal banquet and an exciting array of live entertainment by flickering torch light in the vaulted cellars of Ivory House, just minutes from the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Join King Henry VIII and his special guests who will perform a show of festive pageantry that includes duelling knights, incredible magic and feats of strength. Yes that was taken directly from the website.
So the show was amusing, our wench not so nice, the dinner was edible but the unlimited beer and wine may have been left over casks from King Henry himself. Do yourself a favour, order your own beer.
