Combining the culinary excellence of Lockhart’s Event Catering with the historical performance skills of History Matters Ltd, the Time Traveller’s Tavern provides you and your friends with the chance to be involved in a truly magical and unique dining experience.

The Cuisine

Whether you require a sumptuous, fine dining three course meal , or the popular single course buffet style event, all of our products are of the highest quality.
Our policy is to source local ingredients through as many local business as we can – after all, we have one of the UK’s best natural larders on our doorstep, be it fresh salmon, wild venison, Scottish lamb, Aberdeenshire beef or local seafood. We feel it would be a shame not to use it.

The Performances

Your event should be a feast for the eyes, as well as for your stomach. Imagine becoming immersed in the experience as you are transported back in time. We help your imagination along by providing a multitude of characters from the history books.
We have authentic knights in shining armour on foot and on horseback, damsels (most definitely not in distress!), court jesters, fire performers, magicians, storytellers, blacksmiths, musicians and even pirates to name but a few.

The Venues

Whether you need or have a venue that you want us to transform, we ensure that the moment you step into the performance space, you are transported back in time to that event. Whether it is a flag bedecked hall, a hotel conference room, a dressed marquee or even a barn in a field, we have the props to create the bespoke event that you require. No building is too big or small, with every useable space becoming part of your interactive experience.
