how much?: £20 per person – please book in advance by e-mailing or phoning us, or by calling in to see us.

i’ve heard stories about absinthe making people a little…well, you know…not quite right – will this happen to me?: it does have a bit of a reputation*, but you’ll be fine. probably. well, let’s just wait and see, shall we? you’ll be in good hands…and remember: what happens in the harlequin, stays in the harlequin :)


*absinthe fact no.1: in 19th century paris, absinthe had such a bad reputation that it was known as the charenton omnibus – the suggestion being that consumption of it was a surefire way of ending up in the lunatic asylum at charenton. teee-da!
