I've done quite a few escape rooms over the last year and 'The Tavern' was the best room by far. Logical, Physical and Mechanical puzzles. Staff were fantastic and on hand if you need a clue. Fully recommend Escapade!

While killing time in the city my friends and I had walked by the place and decided to enquire about available sessions. We got locked in the shed, and it was such a satisfying room to make it out from! The room has great flow,...More

Shiny is one of our best. If I had a cloning device I would make a team of Shinies and take over the world. Looking forward to having you over again. It takes a special kind of person to play by themselves. You're a legend.
