My parents had the kids and my friend and I went for a meal and then relaxed watching a film. Comfy seats and warm.

My 21 year old son is a disabled wheelchair user. Was told by very rude staff. That we should have gone during daytime if we wanted him to be able to have access to that particular film. My husband had to carry our son up three flights of stairs. Staff unhelpful through and watched us struggle. The two young girls on the reception desk area not interested extremely rude. Will never put my disabled son through the that type of undignified entrance again. Disgusting throughout further disabled access needed and staff training.

Went to watch Downton film with grandmother, screen 4 was in utter darkness needed torch on my phone to help her see up the steps no staff on hand! The Screen then failed and we had to move upstairs to screen 1. The adverts are ridiculously! Loud and go on for 35min! The staff are incompetent and rude including the so called manager! I will not go here again I do hope the new Scott cinemas in Bideford is going to better than this. I will not go here again I would rather travel to Taunton and use a professional cinema from now on!

Seat (premium one) comfortable enough. Screen fine. Popcorn okay but have had a lot better. Could hear low pitched rumblings from speakers on loud from neighbouring screen, which at times were a noticeable distraction from the film and took me away from the plot and atmosphere I would have otherwise been engrossed in. Other customers and I were raising our eyebrows and looking perplexed at the behaviour of the cinema attendant. I was warned not to enter the seating area by a fellow visitor, who explained the lady had quite rudely told her to wait outside whilst she was cleaning. (They’d tried to enter about 10 minutes before the time stated on the ticket for the start of the film/trailers). The attendant then proceeded to work through the line slowly, one by one, treating us (all adults) as if we were school children. I’ve never come across ‘customer service’ like it. She ripped each ticket in half (I’d have kept mine as a souvenir but this wasn’t to be) and on more than one occasion was telling people off - wait back at the door until I call you / you can’t sit in those seats (some people had moved one space along so there was a gap between them and other customers - these seats were the same type, price and weren’t ever occupied by anyone else). She checked every ticket for the seat number and pointed out every single one, which led to people waiting ages to be seated. It was quite easy to have found the seats without this laborious and quite frankly condescending process. At one point the thought genuinely crossed my mind that maybe this was some kind of social psychology experiment about authority and compliance. During the film I noticed that viewers were frequently ‘checked on’ by an attendant who would stand by the entrance/exit door, observe everyone for a while before leaving and returning again shortly. It was distracting. I’ve never encountered this in a cinema before. I found the experience a bit baffling and despite the cinema itself being fine, the behaviour of that staff member would put me right off from going back if it was local to me.

Always book if we want to view a film as its 30 miles for us and dont want wasted visit. Cinema rarely been full though. Snacks are nice with good allergy info but as in most cinemas expensive addition to the night!
