On the Menu for "Basil the Rat" – Episode Six, Second Season


This post was archived from the original website for Fawlty Towers Revisited, which premiered on public television in 2005.

Food certainly played a key supporting role in Fawlty Towers. So we thought it would be fun to provide you with the “menu” for each episode, as well as links to recipes for such.

In addition to picking up some ideas for your holiday entertaining, we also hope you will find plenty of inspiration for that perfect menu to share with your guests at your very own Fawlty Towers Revisited watching party.

“Do you have rats in Spain, or did Franco have them all shot?” says Basil.  Fortunately rats aren’t on the menu for this final(?) episode of Fawlty Towers, which was transmitted on October 25, 1979.  Veal is, however, with a box of biscuits.  No charge for the rat.
