Great food and service for dinner menu with a variety of hearty yet modern cuisine. The chicken breast on top of mini gnocchi and feta / pesto stuffing is yummo!

Brilliant friendly little restaurant in the hills! Great service and excellent coffee. If it's a pleasant quiet meal before or after a movie or just a lunch in the hills, this is the place to visit, 5 stars for service!

The Reel is just the shot when you want a quick eat before going into the Cameo Cinema to watch your film, Great food and coffee, which can be taken into the theatre if you still haven't had time drink it with your meal.

We deliberately saw a movie that ended before their closing time so we could eat meal after it. We were sat down with the menu and tried to get someone to take order. As no one came after about 20 or more minutes and it was approaching their closing time, my husband went to the counter only to be told... More

I love to come to the reel for cake and hot chocolate after a movie......or anytime really! I am not so keen on eating meals here for 2 reasons. Firstly, the food is relatively expensive. Secondly, there is never enough variety for meals (I am vegetarian). We always come here after a movie and I sometime schedule coffee meetings here... More

This used to be our "go to" place before/after a movie at the cinema next door, but the standard has dropped since the current owners took over. Recently dropped in after a movie. It was quiet but we had to ask to see menus, had to go to the bar to order wine (and they brought us the wrong one),... More

I went for breakfast my table of 3 and another table of 2 were the only customers in there. The food took 50mins to be brought to the table after placing the order. No apologies or reasons, very bad service! The food was nice.

I went with my family for breakfast after opening the menus the waiter pounced on us to get our order. Give patron a few minutes to atleast look over the menu.. After ordering it took 30 mins for the food to come out to us. I think this is totally unreasonable for basic cooked breakfast especially when we were the... More
