We went with a small group of people to try this experience. Firstly, our waitress was great, she was really lovely and helpful. The food was, to put it frankly, pretty terrible. We didn’t really go for the quality of the food. But the cost was very high per person so I definitely was expecting more. Halfway through our dinner we had a hens party join us, they were so loud that it became difficult to talk on our table so the conversation sort of stopped from there which was a shame. Although they did quieten down towards the end. I would recommend going here for the experience, but just don’t get your hopes up about the food.

I was lucky enough to get a gift voucher for a dinner here and had always wanted to try it. I ended up going alone and after speaking to them if its super  awkward alone or not decided to give it a go.  It was slightly awkard at first but better when in the dark. so dont let it put you off going alone if you want to.  food was good although wasnt convinced i knew what I ate until i saw photos, was something different andd completely pitch black. length of time is about right, think i would go stir crazy if sat in dark any longer, as miss looking at things.  all in all good fun and worth a go. and I only spilled a small bit of food on myself haha. cant add any photos obviously, as couldnt see what I ate, got shown them when we left but wont ruin the surprise.  I had the trust the chef option with surprise wine

This is an amazing dining experience. Being in pitch black really heightens the other senses, which gives a very unique experience. Staff are friendly and helpful. The wait staff are open and friendly, really enabling you to have a glimpse into their world of no or only partial sight. The food and wine sections are great, always with something different and with a huge variety of textures and flavours to make the most of the rest of your heightening senses. This is a great night out, where you will get to know your table companions, those you came with and those you get seated next to. It's a night were you are totally focused in the now, with no distractions of phones or how to eat something gracefully as no one can see you! An experience to remember and to repeat when the menus selections change.
