Great place to take the kids. They loved watching a movie then heading straight for a meal. Everything is under the same roof. Prices are in line with odeon and high street chain food places.

Went here to see a movie on my short trip to the UK. I really like this place. I was able to see a movie in IMAX 3D for the first time in my life. Staff was very nice. All the restaurants and shopping centres add to it's value. Parking was easy to find, however, expensive. But that's probably everywhere... More

This to me looks like it might have been a street at one time and they put a roof over it and cleaned it up and made a bunch of restaurants and bars in it. there is also a theatre to watch a movie.

We went here on a Saturday evening about 5.30pm. There is a good choice of places to eat & drink. We ate at Chiquitos and after checked out a couple of bars. The bars were just starting to get busy by this time. We went to the cinema too and found the whole evening to be good fun

Visited here at 6pm Saturday evening and it was bedlam. Probably due to world cup fever and Dolly Parton being in town. Managed to get a seat outside one of the restaurants but spent 20 mins trying to get served while staff tried to serve drinks and watch the match so bought 2 rounds as we couldn't see us getting...

I've been to the Printworks a few times. The cinema is decent and there is great parking. The problem is that it has a ridiculous number of bars and clubs and the place just becomes an awful hub for anti-social behaviour from the early evening. There are bouncers everywhere, but it doesn't seem to have any impact on the people... More
