The 3 actors captured Sybil, Basil and Manuel accurately, many famous sketches from the series were weaved in to the evening. The food was pretty good, the hotel was a little on the chilly side - both in the bar and in the dining area but maybe it was just unlucky that the places where I sat were chilly! Staff were courteous and friendly. Definitely recommend for an interesting and fun night out. One tip - make sure you use the loos before the fun begins otherwise you may find yourself picked on when you have to go out or return during the performance, both my friend and I held on to avoid this and it wasn't very comfortable!!!!

Lots of references to the series and some new stuff as well in the same vein. Three good actors as Basil Manuel and Sybil who took on the characters roles with relish and seemed to be enjoying themselves. You co need to be a fan to get the most or possibly anything from it and to be fair the food is at best described as reasonable but all in all a great fun way to spend n evening and very good value considering how much a meal or night out costs in London.

The show was exceptional. From the moment the actors entered the scene they were in character and providing a hilarious and very realistic imitation of the Fawlty Towers actors. With your eyes shut Basil and Sybil could have been John Cleese and Prunella Scales. Manuel was excellent, extremely funny.The reason for not giving a 5 had nothing to do with the show but the extremely mediocre food. The soup tasted as though it came out of a soup and on a table of 8, only 1 person finished their desert which was uninspiring.

The most hilarious night out !!! I cant recommend this enough ! The three actors are superb, they kept everyone in stitches for 2 hours !! Wow, wow, wow ! The food was good, the venue great, but really it was the performance of the actors who were brilliant !! So true to the original.
i can't recommend enough....5 out of 5 -would give it more if I could.

This is a great experience for anyone who remembers Fawlty Towers fondly. The three cast members do the 1970s sitcom proud.

It starts with an amusing seat allocation, continues throughout with great re-working of various popular scenes and ends with a great crescendo. Each staff member, Manuel, Cybil and Basil all get their own special time amongst the chaos that is the Fawlty Towers dining room. Don’t expect a precise replication of the dining room as it is played out in a normal function room but this doesn’t detract from a well-acted evening.

For me, Basil was the best. He evoked John Cleese superbly. He was also the best at riffing off the audience and bringing them into the play. Each actor played their parts exceptionally well.

And the food was good - with a few little surprises. Very highly recommended.

This was a a real treat. It was a present and four of us had a super funny evening. The actors worked very hard. They were slick and well rehearsed and involved diners enough to be amusing without causing any upset.

Table settings were haphazard, two knives or two forks etc. Basil topped up my water and poured it over the top and spilled onto the table, BUT NOT THE WINE!

Food was good, hot, simple but nicely cooked and presented

Really good night out on town

One of the more enjoyable dining experiences you will have in London, even if you are not a FT fan. Great cast making this a evening to remember

I booked this as a birthday treat as part of my partner's 70th birthday celebrations. We both had a great time. It really felt like we were in a fawlty towers episode. The food was not gourmet but I expected this. We were going for the experience rather than looking for a gourmet meal which would not have been consistent with Basil etc.

Right from the very beginning this show had my partner and I laughing like mad. It was far better than I expected and the actor who played Basil was an exact of John Cleese. We are so glad we went and will definitely recommend it to all our friends and family!

Great night out for a family and friends celebration. I was trying to find something a bit different, rather than just a meal in London. It's certainly not cheap but when you work out a 3 course meal plus coffee along with a 2 hour "show" it actually isn't bad value at all. The three stars work incredibly hard all evening and managed to include every table in their jokes and messing around. Sybil had a fantastic way about her - and remembering a lot of peoples names makes it seem like a much more intimate evening than the 100 or so guests in the room. If you like Fawlty Towers then you will absolutely LOVE this. It's a real tribute to the TV show. Highly recommended.
