From Our Editors

The Medieval Banquet takes place on the site of the land gifted by King Edgar the Peaceful to his thirteen knights of Portsoken. Legend has it that this was in recognition of them having performed three acts of bravery, one above ground, one below ground and one in the water. The land was previously used by the knights to battle for honour, exercise and the entertainment of the king, and after the inheritance they continued to respect and uphold the charter of the land. Their descendants gifted it to the Priory of the Holy Trinity and a hospital was erected on the site, dedicated to St. Katharine, a 4th century saint who was martyred by the Roman emperor Maximinus. Guests are invited to join in the revelry of the medieval times with an indulgent feast, raucous atmosphere and lively entertainment, and on each evening, knights assemble for an elaborate display of sword fighting as an homage to their history. The music is is drawn from the Medieval and Renaissance courts of Europe and covers the period of the 12th-16th centuries, bringing to life 800-year-old musical manuscripts that have long been the domain of specialists and enthusiasts. The Medieval Banquet is situated in the atmospheric location of Ivory House in St. Katherine Docks, which is named after the hospital sited here 900 years ago.

Thought the evening was amazing 😉 My mum took me last year for my birthday and had a brilliant time, so I booked it again for my husband and again had a brilliant time. I made a mistake with the booking but the staff was so helpful. Would recommend to anyone even if you think it's not your thing. You have food, drink and entertainment, I think it's so cheap even if you pay full price, loved it x

It was an enjoyable evening but when we arrived they did not have a record of our booking via Groupon which caused a bit of a delay.

I brought this as a gift for my parents they loved it, although they said they wish we all would have gone with them as this was such a good night.

The food was good, as was the show itself. Found myself laughing a lot and had really friendly people on my table. Well worthy of a Groupon prechase

The entertainment was great, the entertainers and staff created such a great atmosphere by getting everyone involved! It's a brilliant laugh and we met some lovely people at the same time. The food wasn't bad but the downside was the "ale" which seemed to be watered down....but for the price and all that was included we really can't complain!
