Here's What Dining At Medieval Times With Dietary Restrictions Looks Like
By Lauren Farkas
A night at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament is an entrancing experience, providing customers with a romanticized and exaggerated version of the Middle Ages. Luckily, when it comes to the feast offerings, the Medieval Times menu strays from tradition and accommodates various dietary needs, with a respectable selection of diet and allergy-inclusive options.
Each Medieval Times venue offers a three-course vegan meal featuring "a generous serving of hummus with carrot and celery sticks, a main course featuring three-bean stew with fire-roasted tomato and brown rice, and a choice of fresh fruit or Italian ice for dessert," per their website. There’s also a vegetarian meal, which includes all this plus warm pita bread.
Additionally, Medieval Times accommodates gluten-free guests with "tomato bisque soup, hummus, carrot and celery sticks, as well as the main course of roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn and herb-basted potato" (per their website). Anyone concerned with allergies (like nuts or shellfish) can turn to the venue’s provided allergen chart to check which dishes are safe.
