Medieval Dinner

The Banquet

Centrally located in the beautiful and historic St Katharine Docks alongside the River Thames, just a two minute walk from Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Join Henry VIII and his court of knights, troubadours, contortionists, magicians, jugglers, minstrels and medieval tumblers at this most royal of banquets and enjoy a four course feast with ale and wine brought to your table throughout the meal by our dancing wenches.

Our banquets are cooked in house using fresh ingredients led by our Head Chef. After the banquet our enthusiastic guests are keen to get up and have a dance themselves so we play club music till late.
Ale, wine and juice are included during the meal and for anything else you may wish to purchase we have a small but well-stocked bar which is competitively priced. Why not try one of our Premium Cocktails at just £5 or a large pitcher of fruity Summer Pimms for just £18.95.

The Entertainment

Our music is drawn from the Medieval and Renaissance courts of Europe and covers the periods of the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. Our musicians are at the forefront of a reemergence of Medieval English and European musical culture. The music is robust, engaging and emotive, bringing to life 800 year old musical manuscripts that have long been the domain of specialists and enthusiasts.

Our Heritage

All this takes place with the history of 1000 years beneath your feet! Our production pays homage to this history and notably to the Knights of Portsoken, a group of 13 knights in the retinue of 10th century English King, Edgar the Peaceful. The king gifted to them this very land upon which the banquet sits in recognition of performing three acts of bravery, one above ground, one below ground and one in the water, or so the legend goes. Each evening during the banquet our knights assemble to preserve the history of this ancient rite with an elaborate display of swordfighting

There are many opportunities to dance with the cast, sing, bang your fists on the table and cry for your wench to bring you more food or drink!

We also have a range of medieval costumes for hire to help you really look the part.

Banqueting

Flood lit and visible for many miles around, there is an air of mystery as you approach the Castle. There can be very few venues, as spectacular for an exclusive dining experience.

When planning your event there is an abundance of rooms available to choose from.

Drinks Reception

The Guardroom or Ballroom provide an idyllic setting to welcome guests with a drinks reception prior to dinner.

The Guardroom is the first room you enter when arriving at the Castle with two large open fires and an impressive display of armoury you are guaranteed to exceed guests expectations, a great way to start a fabulous evening.

Maximum capacity 200 guests

The Ballroom is softly lit by large chandeliers, illuminating the high vaulted ceilings and impressive artwork creating a very elegant setting.

Maximum capacity 150 guests

State Dining Room

Whether you are looking for a grand dinner in the State Dining Room or want to enjoy a magical evening in a more intimate dining room, there is an abundance of choice available at Belvoir Castle.

The eclecticism of the State Dining Room with its gothic architecture and regency style creates a splendid setting for a formal dinner. Along with its two large open fires, arched marble recesses with large mirrors and candelabra adorning the sideboards guests cannot fail to be inspired.

The State Dining Room table can accommodate 30 guests. Larger parties of up to 120 guests can be accommodated on round banqueting tables.

Shoot Room with Sitting Room

For smaller parties, we can accommodate up to 20 guests in this intimate private dining room. The Shoot Room has the benefit of an adjoining lounge for guests to retire to and enjoy an after dinner drink from their own private drinks cabinet.
