The legends show was absolutely fantastic and the costumes and lighting brilliant. Unfortunately the food and service were very poor and if the show was to suffer because of this it would be an absolute travesty.

Bar service chronically awful, having ordered 5 bottles of wine for the meal (not cheap at £15.50 each) it took two requests to two waiters for the wine to eventually arrive, after we had nearly...

Went to see T-Rexasty in may and booked for the Karpenters in dec. We also booked a 3 course meal. For £19 pp for the meal and show I thought it was a bargain
