Star Wars restaurant opening in London
While Londoners have been getting excited about the city’s first naked restaurant, a new pop-up is asking guests to don their Jedi robes and Wookie suits to enter.

Running in a secret location from 23 June to 2 July, The Fork Awakens will be set in ‘Darth Vader’s kingdom’ and take guests on an ‘immersive journey’ through time and space.

Though details of the set are scarce, diners are warned to prepare for a canteen with ‘strong drinks, hot tunes, and occasional outbreaks of shocking violence’.

The pun-heavy menu includes Hutt Dogs, Mini Banthaburgers, and the appetising sounding Sarlacc Fennels in Besciamel Sauce.

Drinks will include Jedi Lightsaber Cocktails and the famous Blue ‘Bantha Milk’ enjoyed by Luke Skywalker in the 1977 film.

Tickets start at £65 and include a welcome cocktail, four-course interactive meal, set design and entertainment. 

It is the brainchild of 'immersive dining' company Barrel and Forks, whose previous pop-ups have included a Casanova dinner and a gladiator's feast.

The June and July run has already sold out, but organisers have promised to add further dates in September.
