Del Boy’s throwing a party and you’re all invited! Join us here at The Lydiard House for an evening of entertainment, as we host this extraordinary interactive dinner show.

Classic comedy chaos, as only the Trotters could serve up. You know it makes sense!

You will simply love this hilarious tribute featuring all of your favourite bits from the classic sitcom. There’s everything from Batman and Robin to blow up dolls, from hooky goods to club singer, Tony Angelino’s infamous performance of ‘Crying’.

Del Boy’s up to his old tricks, Rodney’s on the run from Damien, Trigger’s lost his broom and Uncle Albert is desperate to sing his sea shanty.

The show begins in the bar over pre-dinner drinks, where you will be greeted by the characters. Then, when the time comes, you will be invited through to the restaurant where you will be served a 3-course meal. Please see our delicious spring menu below.

Following the comedy dinner show, you will be invited to dance the night away with our disco.

£49.50 per person. Price includes: Bucks Fizz on arrival, comedy dinner show, 3-course dinner with coffee and after dinner chocolate, plus disco.

Please arrive at The Lydiard House at 7pm. Carriages at 1am.
