What You Can Expect

Make your own way to the Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Hotel to begin your unique show and dining experience, an affectionate homage to the hit 1970s British sitcom Fawlty Towers, written by John Cleese and Connie Booth.

After ‘checking in,’ perhaps head to Basil's bar to enjoy a pre-dinner drink (own expense) as you wait for the fun to start. Chuckle in amusement as you watch the hotel proprietor, Basil Faulty, rush around greeting guests, and hear Sybil’s shrill cries of “BAS-IL!” bouncing off of the walls while Manuel tries to serve the nuts.

Take your seat as Basil frantically ushers everyone to their places at one of the shared tables, and prepare to laugh yourself silly during what is likely to be one of the most comical lunch or dinner experiences you have ever had.

With only a third of the show scripted, no two dining experiences are ever the same. And with Basil, Sybil and Manuel acting as the waiting staff, expect everything but ‘good’ service. In true Fawlty Towers form, everything that can go wrong, will go wrong — hilariously so.

During the 2-hour experience, dine on a 1970s-inspired 3-course meal consisting of dishes such as spiced carrot and fennel soup, and chicken with tarragon mash and vegetables. Before and during the meal, watch as Basil, Sybil and Manuel wander between tables, mingling with diners and loosely recreating some classic, not to mention hysterical, scenes from the TV show.

Your experience concludes when you ‘check out’ of the hotel.


All performances include a set 3-course meal:

First course
Rich tomato and basil soup with home-baked bread rolls and butter.
