Instead of trying to escape, you're trying to retrieve a bottle of wine; while that makes little practical difference, it's nice to vary the genre a little. The room is one of the physically smallest I've done, though we had a team of five and it felt cozy but not cramped.
The puzzles are structured as a set of tests, which gives a good sense of progression and makes it easier to tell how well or otherwise you're doing. It also means this is a fairly linear room, though I don't remember that be...
And here's your host, Gabrielโ€ฆ Outside the room Lady Chastity's Reserve is not something to be taken lightly. That much was obvious from the moment that I laid my eyes upon Gabriel across the bar. A stout man with a strong beard, this was not some run of the mill host, recruited from a student bar.

How can you fit so much fun into such a small space?! A great in character GM and a bottle of wine to boot, made this room a winner for us!
We head into a pub in Clapham, London where there is an escape room that they say combines clues with comedy and immersive theatre. Will we be toasting a great room, or drowning our sorrows?
Lady Chastityโ€™s Reserve is a wine. A wine of legend. A wine that, if you succeed in the game, you get to take home a bottle of. And by โ€˜homeโ€™ in our case I mean the pub the game is based in, where we drank it all. And now I have to remember enough of the game to write a review.
We ventured intrepidly into the wreckage of Lady Chastity's hedonistic final party, in order to try to retrieve a bottle of her legendary aphrodisiac wine. Did we leave with our thirst quenched?

A highly thematic room, let down here and there with slightly frustrating puzzles. I think it would have been more enjoyable with two or three people, so Iโ€™ll try my next one of their rooms with fewer people.
