The newest immersive dining experience, in a secret East London location.
Spoiler alert: this review is completely free of spoilers. In fact, the most important thing I took away from our evening at Gingerline’s latest immersive dining experience – aside from full bellies of course – was that you shouldn’t try to find anything out before you go, you’ll only ruin it for yourself; the less you know, the more fun you’ll have. Having said all of that, here is everything you need to know without giving anything away:
1) There are five brilliantly designed ‘chambers’ and each is completely different from the last, or so it seems… sorry, saying too much!
2) Your meal ticket doesn’t include booze (apart from a welcome drink), so head to the bar before it begins to stock up with as much as you would usually drink with dinner.
3) It’s a good idea to wear trousers.
4) It would make a great second or third date but a dreadful first.
5) And that’s because there’s quite a lot of audience participation.
6) Your dietary requirements will be well catered to as long as you give them plenty of notice.
7) Having said that, this is not an event for picky eaters.
8) You can take your booze from chamber to chamber, but not your glass – to avoid spilling, presumably – so only pour what you’ll drink in a sitting. Otherwise you’ll end up downing more drinks than you would at a rugby end of season party and things will get messy.
9) It’s easy to get split up from your friends so stick together like glue.
10) It’s loads of fun.

Both my wife and I have been to the Gingerline experience a good few times before. We had been to Chambers of Flavour V1 and so as a treat we took along both our daughters for a Christmas treat to Chambers of Flavour V2.
From the moment we got our secret instructions, to the end of the evening they (and us) were fully involved in the entertainment. It was so different from V1 and had plenty of surprises. The food didn't disappoint either, empty plates for the most part, even with a fussy eater. Generally the food fitted with whatever experience you were having at the time. Vegetarians were well catered for and didn't seem to miss out in any way.
Combined as a whole package, Gingerline provides a very good value experience and does not let you down.
