The Edinburgh Festival: Fringe – Faulty Towers the Dining Experience

Well, well, well.  We have been trying like mad to get tickets for this, so rang the venue and got two ticket. For £37 you get a three course dinner and the comedy, which leaves your sides aching with laughter.

Basically, you dine with snobbish, manic Basil; his domineering wife, Sybil; and hopelessly confused waiter, Manuel. It last two hours and is very worth while.

My only comment is the food was a bit ropey.  You get tomato soup to start with, followed by either Chicken breast and mash (that was really bad) or lamb and potatoes.  You finish with a chocolate cake thing.  Now if this is an example of the food at B’est, I won’t be returning.  Also the place has no A/C so it was really hot and uncomfortable.

Talking to the “actors” after the event, this is the first time they have been at the festival and surely no the last.  It was just such a laugh

So here are some pictures (but my Nokia phone just the worst in the world for taking picture!)
