Faulty Towers Dining Experience

Faulty Towers Dining Experience | Alternative Entertainment

London restaurants – whether permanent fixtures on the capital’s dining scene or any one of numerous pop-ups – will always endeavour to satisfy your exacting standards, by constantly providing both excellent food and faultless service.

It’s the least that you deserve.

There is, though, one restaurant in London which will brazenly, and gleefully, ignore your desire to receive perfect service.  It’s a place where mostly everything that can go wrong, will.

It’s a restaurant where bad service isn’t just tipped, but loudly applauded.

Welcome to “Faulty* Towers, The Dining Experience”: an interactive, theatrical dining experience on a ship at Victoria Embankment.

Your hosts for the evening will – predictably – be the angry, neurotic and frustrated hotelier Basil Fawlty, his “little piranha fish” Sybil, and the main target of his aggression – feckless and bumbling Spanish waiter, Manuel.

Expect the disdain with which Basil will treat you to only be exceeded by the verbal and physical abuse that he’ll regularly unleash on Manuel.

You likely know of several restaurants in London that do bad service well, but this is most certainly the best of them.

Tickets (£50/head midweek, £60/head on Fridays and Saturdays and include the 2hr show and a 3 course meal) remain available for the next 2 weeks: from tomorrow until Sunday 30th October.
