Excellent day out at the cinema. Lucky enough to have 241 ee cinema discount. How to train your dragon 2. The shop is very expensive.

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...

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

Don't go if you want a good night out. Club dirty toilets smelly at the start of the night. Food offered not great. Show not brilliant. Feel ripped of for what the night cost. Would not return.

Not too bad here during the weekdays, but Thursday, Friday, Saturday evening, the last place i'd want to be. Lots of people shouting and fighting, not nice.
