  • Just want to say a huge thanks to Mark for our ultimate paranormal dining night, this was the first time we’d done anything like this.
    We seen it advertised when we visited the jail in the summer and we were curious to see what the jail would be like at night. Although quite a quiet night we weren’t too sure what to expect so anxiety plays a huge part.
    We learned more about the history at this event, and we learned of other things also be it the spiritual way or the scientific way of how things can happen. Mark was a great host with a great sense of humour, the meal was fantastic too!
    Will definately be booking up to do it again, simply, as it was fascinating and different. We also got a few good pictures. The glass moving on the table left us wanting more!!

  • My girlfriend and i visited for the March Dining experience. The welcome from the off from all staff was great. The food was a surprising delight also, i would visit here for the food alone. Excellently cooked and very tasty. We had a small group of us, but Mark was excellent throughout and gave him more time to go through the workshops in more detail than he probably normally would have. This also gave us more time to roam….5 people totally alone with the lights off for 4 hours. I roamed many areas by myself, but can still imagine, that even if the groups are larger which generally they are that their experience would have been just as good as ours. Some people will try to come here and either not be interested or even try to fool Mark, or just not be interested, If that is the case then dont come. Mark and all staff are great, You will learn sooo much about the history and even if a sceptic but remain open minded, you will still be in awe of the history of the jail and the experiences it will offer you. Had an excellent time, and even though no “major” paranormal events occurred we got 1 or 2 good photos and had a couple odd things happen. The paranormal doesn’t act on command remember, so don’t come expecting to be pushed down the stairs or hear doors banging on every visit. If you come open minded, listen to Mark, learn about the history and get involved you will have a magnificent time, and then if you do experience anything insanely paranormal (which has happened still many a time to other visitors) then that would be a great bonus. I jsut hope that any future “ghost hunts” we will now go on will be just as good. Thanks once again to Mark and all staff
