“AN AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE WITH PAGEANTRY AND MEDIEVAL SPLENDOUR”
Before proceeding with our review, we would like to take this opportunity to personally thank owners Andrew and Lauren as well as their management team and entire staff accompaniment for allowing us the privilege to experience the magic that is the Greensleeves Medieval Kingdom!
AMBIANCE & ATMOSPHERE: 5-STARS
The energy and vibe of the entire evening and experience is indescribable. The excitement and buzz that starts in Merlin’s custom hire is just the start of the events that unfold throughout the King’s Feast. There is a highly enjoyable and constant feeling of anticipation, excitement, and merrymaking amongst the guests!
STAFF & MANAGEMENt: 5-STARS
The entire team at Greensleeves Medieval Kingdom do not consider world-class customer service a chore, they embrace it as a passion and lifestyle! Saying you are treated like royalty would not be an over-exaggeration. If anything, it would be an understatement!
On arrival, our greetings were warm and welcoming. The accommodation check-in process was seamless!
Regardless if you are dealing with the owners, management, servers or the turndown and cleaning staff you are made to feel comfortable and extremely welcomed! The staff’s knowledge is unmatched and their willingness to go the extra mile to assist you is beyond compare to anything we have experienced before!
Not to mention that most of their staff have been at Greensleeves for close to two decades, which just speaks for itself on the kind of atmosphere you can expect!
Andrew, the owner, brings a personal touch by engaging with the guests. His in-depth knowledge of the era and passion is unparalleled! Resulting in your experience and stay being truly special and highly memorable!
Don’t even get us started on the phenomenal team of master chefs, but more on them later.
THE KINGS FEAST: 5-STARS
Located in the belly of the castle is the banquet hall where the true magic of the King’s Feast comes to life! You will be visually transported to Medieval times. Trust us when we say that your pallet is going to be taken on an adventure of a lifetime!
The King’s Banquet Hall is aesthetically a feature to behold and nothing less than a design and decor masterpiece! With era-specific art, suits of armour, wall-mounted weaponry, and family banner flags, it truly is stunning! They have created a truly wonderful and unique dining experience and venue! Included in the King’s Feast is a bounty of never-ending deliciousness which included:
Mead (aka) honey wine
Many different varieties of mead were made in medieval England, and some were thought to have medicinal properties. Such as being able to cure melancholy and hypochondria. Unfortunately, not to cure a king-sized babalas!
Horse breed (aka) Wood-fired Medieval Flatbread
Served warm with glazed melted butter and sprinkled with herbs and spices!
Don’t let the name fool you! There was nothing peasant about this soup! Made with fresh locally sourced organic vegetables and mixed grains! If we could, we would fill a pool with this soup!
The King’s Feast
OMG, hands down this was by far the best meal accompanied by an experience that we have ever had! Melt in your mouth, juicy roast beef. Succulent and unbelievably tender whole roasted chicken, golden fried crispy yet fluffy roast potatoes, vibrant string beans and perfectly roasted pumpkin. All served with a rich velvety smooth gravy! Just be prepared to get your hands dirty
because you are not going to be able to resist the urge to keep on grabbing and devouring this endless bounty of delectable and flavoursome offerings!
Cookies & Ice-cream
Again, this is not your standard cookies and ice cream. You’re served a warm freshly baked melt-in-your-mouth biscuit, topped with homemade vanilla ice cream drizzled with a fresh berry compote.
Excluding the atmosphere, venue and entertainment, the meal served alone would be worth every single cent spent! YES, IT’S THAT’S GOOD!
They cater for vegetarians, vegans, pescatarians and halaal diets (just make sure to inquire beforehand).
THE ENTERTAINEMENT: 5-STARS
As we mentioned, Greensleeves Medieval Kingdom is so much more than a fancy-dress diner. In fact, it is a full-on theatrical performance comprising of lighting, comedy and audience participation! The evening events and entertainment are hosted by the charismatic and animated MC ‘The Baron’. We do not want to give too much away about what can be expected, but what we can say is brace yourself for an evening jam-packed with light-hearted humour, laughter, drama, suspense, and non-stop FUN!!!!!
Once the evening festivities have come to an end, the dance floor is opened, and the resident DJ gets the guests on their feet dancing the night away! So, make sure to bring your dancing shoes!
Best of all… If you don’t feel like heading home afterwards, they have stunning accommodation that is sure to be the cherry on top of your once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Situated mere meters from the Kings Banquet Hall, was our well-equipped, extra comfortable room! Don’t worry, the rooms are NOT medieval and are fitted with all the modern amenities you would expect. Including a mini bar fridge, room service as well as a turndown service!
As a bonus, there are a few extra surprises that we will leave for you to find!
The bedding was ultra-luxurious and the bed itself comfortable beyond belief. Bottled bedside water was also a welcomed surprise! Minimalist decor, which was super refreshing to us, as it allowed us to take in the beauty of our surroundings from the private porch!
