About The Cauldron
The Cauldron Magical Cocktail Experience is an immersive cocktail class where patrons use interactive magic wands to brew molecular cocktails.
I would have been happier to pay more and have the experience stretched out for longer. My potion master was very very good and a lot of fun.
Great experience, really enjoyed it. Time was perfect and just enough. If I could change two things it would be the location and I would have more options on the potions to make.
A wonderful evening, only problem really was the tables and trays were all wet and sticky from previous uses
I had booked the experience to The Cauldron last week for the date the 7th of December. My friend and I had travelled from Ireland as a treat for her graduation. Online we were told that visitation occurs within time slots and that if we were late it would be our fault that we had cut into our own time slot and would not be given nay extra time within our 1 hour and forty minute slot. We arrived forty minutes early so we sat outside as we were told by the nice bouncer that we were too early for our slot and we would have to wait elsewhere. Eventually we asked could we even stand inside because it was so cold outside. We sat inside the door and the receptionist asked did we have a booking. We gave her our details and she told us our table wasnt ready as it was ten minutes before our slot was to begin. My friend and I sat expecting to be called as she said she would let us know. A surge of customers came through the door. Minutes passed by and it was now 7:45pm, so our slot had begun. We continued to sit on the bench expecting to be called as we were there before all the customers who had come through the door and were being served. We had no choice but to get up and queue. Eventually we were served and we were brought to our table at 7:55pm. As we arrived at our table our potionmaster told us our table was not yet ready, still. 15 minutes into our paid time slot we finally sat at our table. The glasses on our table had lipstick marks on both of our glasses. We asked for fresh ones. One of the first coctails had knocked over due to the sleeve of the cape and we were never asked if we wanted a replacement. Both our potionmasters barely spoke, nearly seemed as if they didnt want to come near us. When two other customers were put at the other side of our table their glasses were on our box instead of theirs as we had moved them. The potionmaster then blamed us to the other customers that we were the reason the glasses were in the wrong place. Our first box of cocktails arrived and there was liquid in the crate. At first I thought it was from the crate being washed. Our glasses were sitting upside down in the liquid. As I looked closer there was sedement in the liquid so I knew it had been the remains of other drinks that were in the box. I didnt want to ask for fresh glasses again so we cleaned our own glasses with napkins that had been placed on the table to clean up the first cocktail. Everytime we held up our wand to get extra elements that were required for our cocktails we were left waiting for wuite some time or that we were being ignored. The cocktails themselves weren't very nice and we didnt finish any of them. I visited the toilets once and I was shocked by the uncleanliness, they seemed like nightclub toilets that were neglected for the most of the night. Toilet seats missing, rubbish on the floor, wet toilet roll on the seat. At the end we were told thhat they needed the table back in five minutes. We had been cut short as were brought to our table late. All in all the whole experience had been made unenjoyable. We had travelled so far and were so excited and within the short space of time we had within the place all we wanted to do was leave in the end.
Had a really good time! Well thought out. staff were all friendly helpful and fun, would definitely go back!
Loved the idea, the cocktails and the atmosphere. But our service was a little messy. We got the wrong cocktails and they forgot some of the aspects of the cocktails. But they solved it well and we ended up doing the right cocktails.
I love this place. The atmosphere is fantastic, the comsept is great. You get the experience that you are in a posion class. And the service was amazing, sweet and comitted staff :D Can only recommend this place to everyone :D
The whole experience was amazing! Me and my friend loved making the cocktails, the ‘magical’ touches did the job! I would definitely come again and try making different cocktails, as the ones we ordered tasted much better than I expected. Staff really nice and helpful. We were told at the beginning we can order some more drinks from the bar, however I wish we were told about pouring the beer from the tree, cause then we would definitely do that! Sadly, we only found out 5 minutes before the time was up. Overall, amazing experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a little magic.
Too much money for 2 drinks..
Had an amazing time overall however was slightly disappointed as we were seated as a two at the back on bar stools. Our boxes and wands didn’t work when we sat down so we were given the first two items manually which defeated the purpose! We asked to move twice but we’re ignored. They were short staffed and our experience was due to start at 6.30 and actually started at 6.55. They made sure we had the full allocated time slot though. Given the bad start, the cocktails were amazing, the rest of the experience and cocktail making was incredible, well thought out and definitely worth it! Slight shame about the start and the service.
The bottles were very sticky and dirty. Our potions master knew what we needed but sometimes just forgot to bring it to us so we had to ask multiple times. Otherwise amazing experience!!
Went for works Xmas do. Very enjoyable and help on hand if needed. Lovely setting and atmosphere. I was a little apprehensive when it said it was in a tent. Would have been nice if you could buy some food even just a bag of crisps. The only thing that was a let down was the toilets. They were not clean and an unpleasant place to go to.
The potions were to simple, and very expensive
The colleagues were friendly and helpful.
A really fantastic, well thought out experience. Cocktails were interesting to create (and tasty) the staff were helpful and the venue was spot on and decorated beautifully. A little slice of magic. Thank you for making us wizards for the day!
Good setting, a little overpriced. And too bad you don't have the chance to hang out afterwards.
We didn't have food but the drinks were amazing and the whole event was very magical. Great fun for a group or team.
My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Without doubt one of the coolest things we’ve ever experienced and was made even more brilliant by our lovely potions master.
Your team tried to seat 4 people on one extremely small bench. They were also lying that they are fully booked so can not change anything now. But in front of us people were walk ins, who were given half of our table. Long story short our party had really looked forward to this evening, but it was completely ruined by your team. The idea of this place is excellent, simply poorly executed by your team.
So magical - great for the Christmas period. Recommend going in pairs or smaller groups so that you all get the chance to enjoy!
Fantastic look and feel, loved the experience of making our own cocktails, which were delicious. Great attention to detail and the staff were friendly. Those who made the effort to show a bit of flair and character were outstanding! My only complaint is that there could have done with a couple more staff members to reduce wait time summoning a potion master.
Both Bobby and Charlie were brilliant, they were really helpful whenever we had any questions for them but the gentleman who served us (I can't remember his name) was not the best. We had paid for the gift wrapping and asked him twice for it. It wasn't until I asked Bobby about it that we finally received it. He also didn't seem as enthusiastic about the whole experience which ruined it a little for me.
The service was very slow and yet we were still limited in time. The cocktails were rather tasty and the atmosphere pleasant however, we felt we were rushed through the experience.
Amazing and fun experience! The whole setting looks great! And the fact that you get to choose and brew your own potion is awesome!
The drinks were great and we had an excellent time. Only downside was a part of our magic box didn’t work and neither did our lamp, which didn’t ruin the night, but it did spoil the illusion a little bit.
