A friend and I came to the Murder Mystery night on 15/2. It was an evening we were both really looking forward to. I have been to coombe for a few events over the years the medieval banquets, dinner in the restaurant and more recently I hired a private dining room for my 40th birthday and everything about that night was spot on!!! However the Murder Mystery was a BIG disappointment. I never expected a murder mystery night to follow the same format as the medieval banquets really it should be advertised as a murder mystery banquet. Firstly the seating was awful and very uncomfortable and we were sat in a draft all night, the food was very below par I’m not sure what the starter was but it smelt like cat food. The main course was very over cooked; I think the only thing that was ok was the desert. The story was rubbish and not very engaging and the breaks in-between were left blank no music, no nothing it completely lacked any sort of atmosphere. The actors looked like they couldn’t be bothered really there was only one (the girl who played Gwen) who was any good and engaged the audience, lady whoever she was, the sheriff, the brother and the lord were awful it reminded me of a junior school play that was running through a dress rehearsal. A total disappointment and everyone near us was saying the same that it was a complete let down a waste of money.
I certainly would not be recommend anyone to trying it unless you want to be bored to death for the night. I think it is just a money making exercise for them that takes minimum effort on their part. If I purchased something from a shop that was substandard I would take it back for a refund!
