A good film theatre, seats are comfortable and reception/ticket office is well organised staffed with friendly helpful people. A joy to visit and the attached restaurant is worthwhile too on a stand alone basis or in conjunction with a film. Offers apply such as Fish & Flicks, a discounted special menu combined with tickets for the cinema.

We booked to see a film at this cinema because we dislike the corporate cinemas closer to our home. This is a popular cinema with reasonably comfortable seating. My absolute pet hate is the length of time spent showing us the advertisements prior to watching a film. It also made the group of women behind us talk even louder to... More

We took our 3 yr old granddaughter to see the pantomime What a lovely time she had . She even went on stage at the end of the performance to join in singing. The cast were brilliant including the young dancers who were delightful. Panto only on for half term week but well worth going to see!!

Our beef was full of fat on our Sunday roast, not the standard we have been used to on our other visits. It was my husbands birthday meal with family. The staff were attentive and friendly and the rest of the meal was pretty good, but I couldn't believe the piles of fat on everyone's plates, and trying to cut... More

A pleasantly decorated restaurant with tables inside and out, integrated with the theatre/cinema on the quayside right by the station. Some Thai influence detectable on the menu. Lightly cooked bits of squid with crunchy cubes of water melon, pea shoots and occasional chilli slices was an attractive starter as were the prawns with sweet chilli dip. A rib eye steak... More

What a fantastic evening held here. The staff were friendly and professional. The menu was excellent and food was well presented and fully and flavour. The wine served with dinner was ideal and my new favourite. Happy to return and recommend.

Close to car parking and easy to access the cinema has a good range of drinks/eats for the showing and shows most of the latest films. It is very popular locally and you can book in advance. Does cater for children's birthday parties and my daughter absolutely loved the ice cream. There is an ice cream hut adjacent and you... More
