“Over rated and over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

This venue may be a popular stop for coach parties but it is poor value for money. The cinema is the best part. We won't be rushing back, even on a rainy day.

“Nice stop off point from the M6”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We regularly call in here on our way north. Great facilities, some nice shops, and a range of places to eat, all of which serve great food. Far from being a service station, somewhere to recharge batteries!

“shopping centre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We were interested in the architecture but unfortunately little else. Of course it is free to enter but the main focus is on spending as in all commercial ventures.We will not go again unless there is a good exhibition, nothing on while we were visiting.

“Afternoon delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Stopped for a cuppa and a cake before hitting the motorway for the drive home. What a nice surprise a very interesting place with lots for the family especially the kids. We had soup, a panini and a cake. Food was good and the prices were reasonable. Well worth a stopover.

“An unusual venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I visit Rheged every time I am in the area. It is very unusual being constructed underground. If you like good food which is locally sourced then it is here. The cafes are very good and the shops sell a lot of articles that are different to the usual run of the mill . My husband and I have been to the cinema twice and they have extremely interesting speakers. They run various events and you need to look up whats on and plan your trip accordingly. I think it has something for everyone. My husband and I are retired and we also bring our ipad and check our emails whilst here. I have tried the spa and thoroughly enjoyed my back massage. Well worth a visit.
