. Entertainment not for children under 16. I did ask should I bring 14 year kids with, yes certainly, was the answer to this... Rude sexist - under the belt entertainment from the entertainer. My daughter was expected to tuck a bib into the pants of a grown man. SHE DID NOT DO THIS.. . Dinner was extremely expensive per... More

Medieval setting, with medieval characters, decor, language and clothing. Besides the experience of being transported to the past, there is plenty of entertainment, food and drink. The food is limited to a large roast plus a starter, but the craft beer menu and 2l jugs will keep you busy and having a jolly good time. The get to pick from... More

The emcee/host made homophobic, outdated and disgusting jokes that ruined my night. After driving an hour to get there and spending my (gay) dollars on this business, it was unconfortable, unfunny and humiliating to hear discourse that bordered on gay shaming and bashing. This kind of humor has no place in this day and age. I left the restaurant halfway... More

What an exciting night out. We chose the best venue to celebrate Edwards birthday. The night begins when you change into your medieval attire, you have so many great options to choose from. The service and entertainment was great, the host was funny and engaging. It's best to enjoyed with a group of friends, not ideal for a date.

What a blast! The most fun we had in a long time. Great food, excellent craft beers and a master of ceremonie-Baron- had us in stitches. We were even king and queen for the evening. You have to dress up though. All the different costumes. Felt like going back in time, From the costumes to the decor to to wenches!... More

On arrival you are shown to a dressing area where you get to choose a costume and dress up for a medieval banquet... that is where the fun begins! The entertainment was great, adult humour would best describe it. I was surprised to see that some people brought their young children? I would not advise or recommend taking children, not... More

We booked at "The Kings Table" for the special event and were not disappointed by the venue, cuisine or the service! Period costume is on hire at the venue ( we were advised that each costume is cleaned after every wearing) and it really sets the tone. Events are presided over by "The Baron" who does an excellent job in... More

This was a lot of fun. From the time you arrive you are immersed in the medieval theme. Even the road to the restaurant made you feel like you're driving to a castle in the woods. The costume hire was very quick and efficient and lots of fun to choose something to wear. The entertainment in the restaurant was great.... More

Greensleeves was a year-end function choice for me, and I really found it to be an experience that didn't disappoint anyone! From the very beginning, on arrival the buildings, decor and 'Merlin's Costume Hire' with the dress-up options excited everyone and transported us into another place and time! The entertainment was "bawdy" and fun, and the 'Baron' and his Troubadours... More

Went at the last minute just 2 of us. I do think a bigger group is a good idea. Having said that we enjoyed it thoroughly. On a Friday traffic from johannesburg can be hectic. It took us 2 hours for what should be a 45 minute drive. We decided to take a room so as to be able to... More
