The Great Murder Mystery at The Lost Estate

Purveyors of unforgettable experiences, The Lost Estate, are back. Known for staging sell-out immersive shows (including critically acclaimed experience, The Great Christmas Feast, which was previewed in KCR) their latest offering is unlike any other night out in London.

Based on a wildly successful previous run and near sell-out opening months, their cult hit show
The Great Murder Mystery is now extending its dates into June and July. This unique event is an
ingenious retelling of Sherlock Holmes’ most famous case: The Hound of the Baskervilles. It
brings together London’s top chefs, mixologists, actors and musicians in the immersive
experience of the year – a thrilling feat of fine dining and world-class performance.

Unparalleled service is paired with mind-blowing craft cocktails from the brilliant mind of Head
Bartender, Ilya Demenkov, and martini carts operating an at-seat service can be seen weaving
through the Tiffany-lamp-lit tables. Wine connoisseurs can choose from two curated wine flights
(available for pre-order), meticulously paired to the fine dining menu, or flag down The Lost
Estate’s resident sommelier for personalised recommendations. The food is an event all on its own, a decadent three course menu takes visitors on a gastronomic journey through the finest dining halls of Victorian London. Masterminded by Head Chef, Ashley Clarke (Gordon Ramsay Group, Temper Soho, Smokestak), each course is made with high-quality, locally-sourced British ingredients and woven into the heart of the story unfolding all around you.

The meal starts with an inspired take on Sherlock Holmes’ favourite meal – ham and eggs – in
the form of house-cured Gressingham duck ham, confit egg yolk bearnaise and pickled
blackberries. Next up is a spring chicken with black truffle mouse, spring pea tart, Pommes
Anna and chicken scratchings. Finally, a dessert featuring that new-fangled invention (at least in
1881), ice cream, in the form of a decadent Champagne sorbet atop a Devonshire tart with
black sesame and strawberry compôte.

Their stunning vegetarian menu includes an arancini with fire-roasted tomato, green olive
“catsup”, fresh tomato, asparagus and piquillo pepper ratatouille to start, followed by a fresh
tortellini filled with burrata and black truffle, smoked garlic crema, garden pea pesto and toasted
pine nuts. Vegan, gluten and dairy free alternatives are also available on request.

The ultimate night out for lovers of Sherlock Holmes, the thrilling action is punctuated by
exquisite live strings, as the virtuoso musicians and skilled actors move through this gripping
rendition of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Helmed by returning director Simon Pittman (Next To
Normal Immersive, Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre), the performance features
the much-anticipated return of the remarkable Sam Collings in the role titular of Sherlock
Holmes and the spellbinding live music is courtesy of composer Steffan Rees.

The Great Murder Mystery runs until 31st July 2024. In May, evening performances will take
place from Tuesday to Sunday, with additional matinee performances on Saturday and Sunday.
