If you think the scariest thing about food is running out of it, prepare to be surprised. This Halloween Deliveroo is hosting the scariest dinner party ever, in the UK's most haunted location: The Castle Jail at Warwick Castle.
Reputed to be haunted by the souls of Civil War prisoners and royal poltergeists - and patrolled by the spirit of a giant black dog, Warwick Castle is the ideal – or perhaps worst – place for this Deliveroo Dinner with the Dead. With shivers up the spine for starters and a double serving of malevolent atmosphere for main course, this hideous Halloween horror is enough to make even the bravest turn to petrified pudding.
Those daring (or daft) enough to take on the challenge of the Deliveroo Dinner with the Dead can apply for tickets on eventbrite:
Upon entering Warwick Castle, guests will be guided through the ancient grounds towards the imposing castle walls. Once inside the courtyard, the procession will lead through a narrow stone passage leading to the notorious Castle Jail (known as the 'Gaol'), where they'll be seated for supper. Guests that are brave enough to make it to mortifying mains can choose from a range of dishes from Giggling Squid and Pizza Express.
The experience will be open for bookings from today at 5PM - for a dinner that will take place on the eve of Halloween (October 31st from 5PM-7PM). Each table booking will be costed at £20, which includes entry and food. In the creepy Castle Gaol visitors can discover more about some of the darkest, bloodiest and most frightening times in the Castle's history. New for 2019, visitors to the Castle and fans of Most Haunted can join the Paranormal Encounters team as they present their broadcast hunting for ghosts or Brave Knights can see if they can survive the Dead of Knight scare maze.
A spokesperson at Warwick Castle said "Enjoy – or endure, if that's a better word – a taste of terror from out of this world at the first ever Deliveroo Dinner with the Dead this Halloween. We have a long tradition of haunting and Halloween hijinx give us the chance to tell some of the scariest stories from the 1,000 years of the castle's history."
Joe Groves at Deliveroo said "What better way to spend Halloween than tucking into a delicious Deliveroo dinner in a thousand years old haunted dungeon? We're always looking for ways to mix up the way people enjoy food - this is certainly one for the books. Join us if you dare!"
