About the event:

You may wonder what the benefits are, but the absence of distractions promotes the idea that eating in the dark heightens diner's senses making for a more pleasurable experience. The focus is instead on taste, smell, mouthfeel, and sound, as well as promoting the art of conversation. 

Diners will enter a warmly lit room and will be accompanied by waiters and seated before being blindfolded and plunged into total darkness to enjoy this unique culinary experience. 

There will be 2 available main dish options (meat or 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, blindfolded. The 'Pitch Black' event will run on select dates only and pre-booking is essential.
