There’s no better place to embrace the haunted atmosphere of Halloween and the thrilling danger of the gunpowder treason than with a banquet at Coombe Abbey. We’re hosting two incredible events where you can experience mediaeval horror and remember the fifth of November like never before.
From a haunted Halloween banquet at Coombe Abbey, to a gunpowder gala at a hotel steeped in history, here’s what to expect at the two unmissable events.
The Haunted Halloween Banquet
Submerge yourself in this spooktacular event and celebrate Halloween with a haunted banquet at Coombe Abbey. Expect the unexpected at this Hallows Eve extravaganza where ghostly goings on and haunted activity occur. Dress to impress at this event in mediaeval armour as you enjoy an evening of sinister fun, thrills, and scares, whilst you feast on a fangtastic four-course meal served with goblets of wine and ale.
A boo-tiful banquet
In the hotel of horrors, a mead cocktail will greet you on arrival before taking you through the mediaeval manor where you will dine like mediaeval kings and queens at a hauntingly royal Coombe Abbey banquet.
A divine selection of food will await you, perfect for satisfying your appetite. Starting with The Baron’s Broth, you can scare the taste buds with a vegetable, herb & white bean pottage before tucking in to The Royal Rib, perfectly marinated in swine with sage, cider & honey. Why not try My Lorde’s Chicken? A ghostly good quarter roasted fowl in a sharp lemon and mead sauce served with a buttered sweetcorn cob, herby diced potato and rustic salad in a french dressing. Finish off your fangtastic feast with The Courte Crumble, flavoured with apple and apricot with elderflower cream.
To get the most out of your visit, sit back and watch a full stage Halloween show, guaranteed to leave you shaking in your seats.
Fright for the right to party at the post-banquet disco where you can dance away the night with the spirits until 12:30am. Let down your glad rags and spend the night with friends and family and brave a night’s sleep at Coombe Abbey.
The Gunpowder Gala Banquet

Light up this bonfire night and enjoy a history fuelled evening with the Coombe Abbey gunpowder tale, mediaeval drinks, and a stunning firework display. Make this experience one to remember and fire into a delicious four-course feast fit for royalty.
