A Tudor Feast
Step back in time to the reign of famed Tudor monarchs like Henry VIII, Bloody Mary and Elizabeth I, as England broke away from the Roman Catholic Church, Shakespeare composed his sonnets, and explorers like Sir Walter Raleigh began the conquest of the New World. Diners can expect dazzling dishes from the tables of Hampton Court like Cockentrice, a stuffed suckling pig joined with a roast turkey to represent a mythical beast. Expect stories of court life, love and murder, tales of Elizabethan London and what it was really like to work in a Medieval kitchen.
