Once you have become acquainted with complete darkness, youll notice that its quite relaxing and your social awareness is heightened. When guests have finished their meal, they will be invited into an experience room where the ingredients and cuts of Lidls Irish beef used in the menu will be revealed by Chef, Gary OHanlon.

I’ll be there each night and meeting guests in the ‘experience room’ to talk through the ingredients in each dish……. will you guess right!?”
