Went to this tonight, it was absolutely appauling, Ive seen a better preformance from a nursery play, and as for the food it was tasteless, looked and taste cheap, sausage rolls, chicken wings, potato wedges and macarona buffet style served on side plates!! To charge £20 a head is a disgrace. Absolute joke!!!

Not knowing quite what to expect from this gift from our son we approached this event with some trepidation. What we got was a fantastic fun event with food and entertainment thrown in. Punch Tavern is an old English pub on Fleet Street and the back room is put over to the Murder Mystery event. There were 40 of us,... More

I booked the One Square Mile of Murder tour in Blythswood Square and was not disappointed. Our host, Mr Dark, was as creepy as they get, and it was hard to believe he was anything but Victorian... The fact that it is held in Glasgow is an added bonus of course (Glasgow hecklers are famous for outdoing their hosts!) I... More

We booked "Death By Chocolate" and had 46 guests attend the evening to celebrate our Ruby Wedding. Four days later and I am still have guests who attended ring me to say what a great... More

Myself and my wife attended our first ever Murder Mystery Evening. It was called "Death By Chocolate" and was hosted in the Royal Overseas Club, on Princes Street in Edinburgh. As we were unsure as what to expect, we went with an open mind. As it turns out, everyone else attending was feeling the same. The hostess explained how the... More

I've now been to two events hosted by Spirit of Glasgow. Death by Chocolate murder mystery and the one square mile of murder in Blythswood square. Both were really entertaining. I would highly recommend them! I had to contact them to rearrange a booking and they couldn't have been more polite or helpful. Great customer service from a fabulous company!
