Sir Francis Drake Night

Join us as we commemorate the birthday of Sir Francis Drake...

We will commemorate Sir Francis Drake's birthday with a Medieval Banquet in the Great Hall. Savour our three-course menu and signature Sir Francis Drake Mojito to the sounds of live medieval music.



In 1587, it is thought that Sir Francis Drake attended a great banquet at Boringdon Hall held by Boringdon's owner at the time, John Parker. The banquet was to celebrate Sir Drake's raid on the Spanish fleet in Cadiz Harbour. Other distinguished guests included his brother Sir John Hawkins, Richard Grenville, Sir Walter Raleigh and William Parker (brother of John Parker). The Great Hall where the banquet took place is now much the same as it would have been 1587.

Friday 26th January 


£49.50 per person
