Really good time. Lovely staff, even got two rounds for free! Game wasn’t too hard either so a lot of fun! I’d recommend it to any group of friends looking to get pleasantly merry with a twist
Hands down this is the hardest I've ever had to work for a cocktail, but it was absolutely worth it. We did find the bar a little bit hard to find which was part of the fun, upon arrival we were shown to our table where a soldiers coat was laid out for each guest. We all quickly got into our uniform and were greeted with a welcome drink and our first code to crack. It was such a brilliant evening, quirky and fun and delicious cocktails (if you chose wisely!). Highly recommend a visit.
One of my best cocktail experiences in London! Great place to go with a couple of friends who also enjoy a little bit of gimmick. The WWII themed bunker is very nicely done, unlike many of the escape rooms where you felt like all the props would fall apart at any minute. The staff were all very friendly and "in character". Cocktails were a bit of a hit and miss, because they were crafted for you based on the codes you cracked. One tip is to tell the staff what type of base (e.g. whisky, rum, vodka) you like and ask them to stick with that. Overall, great fun!
Absolutely loved it! Great welcome gets you in role straight away, they take you through an unforgettable experience made of enigmas, unique cocktails and the atmosphere is impeccable... Is like taking a back-to-the-future Delorean straight to a WW2 bunker :)
Tots amazing! Daddy of immersive experiences in London!
Chelsea needed a cocktail bar and this is probably the best cocktail in Chelsea.
Late night too - 2am.
Over and out x
This place was awesome! Straight away it looks absolutely amazing, then we were greeted by a waitress in character, seated and got some war time jackets to put on as well as our first drinks within minutes of arrival. Cracking the codes was great fun and when we received our personalised cocktails they looked almost as amazing as they tasted! Didn't know you could put some of those ingredients into a drink but clearly the bartenders were working their magic!
Playing with the enigma machines and radios was very cool to do and the service was slick and very entertaining
All in all an extremely cool immersive experience and a great night out - would definitely book again!
Combinations of cocktails and code breaking remain disappointingly rare, hence how excited I was when I read about the Bletchley. We arrived in the first sitting and were whisked downstairs where the staff quickly showed us to to our seats. Presented with an army coat, a welcome cocktails, an envelope and a code machine we were then more or less left up to our own devices.
A quick code later we had phoned through our first drink, and a completely customised creation was served up shortly after, alongside a new envelope. The second code was slightly more difficult and required a little thinking - but hey presto not long after sending through we received our third and final cocktails.
The cocktails were good if not great, and don't go expecting some sort of escape room style puzzle (very much beginners, which I was grateful for!) but this is a fun evening, with friendly staff and makes a nice change from the usual.
Amazing immersive experience. Must do. Clever and personalised cocktails. If you just want a pint or a drink then go to a pub. This place is fun and booze.
No challenge in the 'cryptography'. Terrible service - expect an hour wait for a drink! Cocktails utterly lacking in personalisation, taste, quality - and quantity!! You only receive two cocktails and one welcome drink which apparently qualifies as a cocktail as it contains the mysterious mountain flower..... Even if the drinks technically qualified as cocktails none of them contained enough alcohol to actually taste like one. Overall utterly disappointed with the whole experience
disappointing in all areas. barely a themed cocktail bar and most certainly not an immersive experience. almost everything they promise is not delivered. don't waste your time or money...
