Pizza prior to a movie we thought would be a nice night out. Glass of wine enjoyable, fire nice. But sorry the pizza not worthy of a good comment. Chicken and Brie..... Very little of both and not hot. Sorry usually only submit positive post. I sure they have some nice dishes but just give the pizza a miss.

We had a very enjoyable evening of watching a movie and having dinner with friends. Everyone enjoyed their dinners and it is great having a wine while watching the movie. We learnt that you can order your meal and it will be ready at the end of the movie. An enjoyable evening

This is the 3rd time we have been here, it has a lovely atmosphere & the fire was going as it was a bit chilly. The service was a bit slow this time but the food makes up for it, has been fabulous each time & we will be back for sure.

I have just been to Circus Restaurant in Martinborough and ordered a pizza - I have to say it is the best pizza ever - just bursting with different flavours. When you are in Martinborough, visit this restaurant - you won't be disappointed.

Over the past 12 months I have had the pleasure of working with Tim and his team to organise cinema seating and dinner for groups of up to 35 people.. This has always been a thoroughly enjoyable experience with flexibility in movie selections and time and a positive and ready response to catering requirements. Even extending to participants not attending... More

Having recently being advised not to eat gluten or dairy I was happy to see a good selection of GF food. When i asked for dairy free this wasnt a problem for the chef. Food was lovely. However due to the lack of staff to serve cinema goers and restaurant patrons my husband had to wait a long time for... More

We recently had a meal and watched a movie at Circus and the whole experience was lovely. Great service, food beautifully cooked and presented, and very friendly staff directing us to the right theatre. We'll be back!

My wife and I highly recommend a visit. We have been many times and have always enjoyed great food at a reasonable cost. Service has aways been very good with friendly staff. The stylish garden area is an excellent place to enjoy a drink in the sun. Add a movie if you wish! Will definately be back...soon.

We went two nights in a row for a meal and a movie. First night I ordered a steak (well done to my liking and it was so so tender) and my husband had the Fish meal who said it was absolutely delicious. Also ordered dessert - this was exquisite. The second night we ordered pizza and wedges - scrummy.... More
