A group of my Keep Fit friends and I visited the Odyssey last night to watch Mama Mia - Here We Go Again. What an enjoyable evening. So nice to be able to sit in a group on comfortable chairs and enjoy a sociable drink...More

This is a real "class" cinema - velvet armchairs, tables and "candlelight" so you can enjoy a glass of wine, bubbly or beer while you watch a great film. Superb screen and sound. Just a joyful way to enjoy a film!

We visit regularly and are never disappointed. Such a great experience at the Odyssey every time. Great service, unique set up for a cinema, comfortable chairs, and extra cushions and blankets if you want them. Love sitting around a table with a glass of wine....More

This cinema is lovely . It’s like stepping back in time. The service is really great. The decor is fab. You must go and enjoy a film in it. Have some nibbles and drinks at the same time.

I like the different in cinema experience the Odyssey offer, a table, a bar, comfy enough seats. It’s a really easy and relaxing evening out. Downfall is their listings, it’s very hard finding movies you would like to watch on good times.

Excellent luxurious cinema. Single large screen and big comfortable chairs with plenty of legroom plus sofas at the back (for two) and tables on the ground floor. Mixture of old, art house and blockbuster movies. Great cinema experience with a full bar and cheer plates!

If you want to go to the cinema and have that little extra, then The Odyssey is for you. Sit in a comfortable chair and have a glass of wine and some cheese if it tickles your fancy

Good local cinema, comfortable seating and great prices. Very friendly staff and good bar/cafe. Customers are all considerate and it doesn't suffer the problems the major chains have.

Wine, beer and soft drinks. There are sofas, but some of the tables are nicer if you can get a good view. Premium seating is good on the side (not so good on the first level), but the seats come at a slight premium.
