Departure Point

Faulty Towers the Dining Experience, Radisson Blu Edwardian 9-13 Bloomsbury Street The Torquay Suite Theatre, London WC1B 3QD England
Make your own way to Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Hotel and check in to the ‘Torquay Suite Theatre.’ Prepare for a hilarious dining experience created in homage to Fawlty Towers, the beloved British sitcom written by comedy legends John Cleese and Connie Booth.

Arrive early for a drink in Basil’s Bar (own expense). The mayhem starts when hotel proprietor Basil comes on the scene to try to micromanage Manuel, the long-suffering, much-loved waiter from Barcelona. Happily, Basil’s wife Sybil is on hand to ensure that both he and Manuel are brought under control just enough to announce the seating plan.

The antics of the actors unfold as you eat, with this comedy playing out around you. Laugh as you dine and savor the flavor of dishes like rich tomato and basil soup, roasted chicken with seasonal vegetables, and sumptuous chocolate mousse cake for dessert.

Please note that Faulty Towers The Dining Experience portrays the spirit of the Fawlty Towers TV characters and the atmosphere they create, but the performers are impersonators and the show has no connection to the BBC, nor to John Cleese, Connie Booth, or their TV scripts.

For Faulty Towers and Monty Python fans, this is a must see show. It is very funny and sticks to the TV show quite well. The food is secondary, but good. Ask for more rolls...I dare you!

Brilliantly done by three excellent actors who really knew their subjects. A bravado finale by "Basil" to close. Well done everybody.

Fautly Towers was set in a Torquay Hotel where comedy events took place. This Experience took place in a depressing dark grey room used for corporate conferences with NO attempt made to add any ambiance to the scene. It was like attending a play with no scenery. Maybe a few Torquay posters and pictures, the odd plastic plant would have set the scene, how about some awful hotel canned music during the pre - amble - probably too much trouble! We therefore sat down in this dreary room to be entertained by three look alike actors who, with the exception of Sybil seemed incapable of leaving the script and involving the audience a few attempts were made but highly scripted and never impromptu. Where Manuel standing on a table singing Via Espana fitted in is anyones guess! The script was laboured and not the anticipated fast moving comedy we had expected. The concept is fabulous but lets look at details and make this a proper Production. Very amateurish and not worth anything like the amount charged. I felt so disappointed, I also felt insulted by the don't care attitude of the production team, i.e. turn up, do it, go home! The food was nicely cooked and well presented by the hotel staff

My wife and I rounded off a long weekend break in London with a much anticipated visit to the 'Faulty Towers dining experience ' staged at the Bloomsbury Hotel. Delighted to say this did not disappoint with two hours of madcap antics and fun delivered by a very clever trio of professional actors in the guise of Basil and Sybil Faulty and the the hapless Spanish waiter, Manuel. Together they did a great job of blending together and re-creating many sketches and scenarios from the iconic TV series - bringing hilarity to the proceedings and very skillfully picking on some of the attending diners to take part. Any fears that this could be overbearing or intrusive was immediately allayed because it was clear they knew, instinctively, who to 'pick on' without causing offence. And because this was staged in London with a very broad spread of overseas 'diners' in the room it brought even greater authenticity to 'Basil's' loony dialogue and manic behaviour. Full marks to the guy who played Manuel, because he really could have come from Barceloooona my wife was delighted when he crept up behind her to show her his hamster !!! And Sybil was as formidable as expected - a delightful battleaxe reigning over a room of slamming doors, flying bread rolls and chaotic service. Our verdict: Great fun, lots of belly laughs and very professionally produced. And two extra bonuses - the food was good and the other four guests on our table , who we only met on the night, were very nice, interesting company. Our only disappointment is that photography was banned at the event and, at the start of proceedings it did say that a company photographer would be on hand to take and provide pictures to guests who wanted to buy them. This didn't happen and it's a shame because we would have liked to share the fun with friends - and heartily recommend the 'Faulty experience.'
