Upon arrival, guests will be required to hand over phones, watches and all other potential sources of light before being accompanied into the dining room where they’ll be met by total darkness. With no visual distractions, diners will spend the 90-minute experience indulging their other senses to truly taste, smell, feel and hear their food.

There are three set menus to choose from, each offering a two-course meal with a drink. Dietary requirements and allergies can be catered to and additional drinks can be pre-purchased before entering the dark dining room. There will also be the option to stick around after dinner for drinks at the bar.

There will be 3 available main dish options (meat, fish and vegetarian) and although the menu is secret, dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for. Diners will also be able to order their favourite drinks to accompany their food before entering the dark dining room.

Each dining experience lasts 90 minutes, giving diners ample time to get comfortable with their new surroundings and enjoy a delicious two course meal with a drink, blindfolded.

Shrouded in mystery and utter darkness, this unique dining experience is one you’re certain to remember.
