What a great concept. Boutique cinema and restaurant/bar. Best chicken curry ever. Fantastic staff. Open fire. Thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Great food, especially the squid salad! Great movies - a small cinema that bothers to show documentaries, Opera at the Met, National Theatre productions, kids movies in the holidays and current favourites. Has a great fireplace,for winter and great outdoors area for summer. Great wine-list promoting local wines., great staff

This is a place where if the film is right you could take children,but it is worth a visit if you are staying in Martinborough. The staff are great, we had pre ordered our meal so when the movie had finished we sat at a table reserved for us and then our meal was served along with our choice of beverage.You can take a wine or beer into the theatre with you and the seating is very comfortable,they have two or three theatres so there is normally something on for viewing.We can highly recommend this for anyone visiting this town.You can also go there and just have a nice meal without going to a movie.

Uncommunicative staff member sold us movie tickets eventually . Used our own mobile torch to find way into the dark theatre after the staff member ignored the comment that is was hard to see. Pleasant surroundings but staff assistance was 0% on this occasion.

Nice little cinema in the centre of town. We popped in a couple of hours before the movie to get our tickets and were told that we were able to order food and eat it in the theatre. So we didn't bother eating beforehand thinking that we could eat while watching the movie. When we turned up to watch the movie there was another girl at the desk who said food was not allowe in the theatre. Conflicting information here. We enjoyed the movie, even though we were starving.

Went there based on TripAdvisor reviews. Nice venue and neat concept in the way it is a combined theater and restaurant. However, the dishes we tried were very average. I wouldn't recommend going there just for the food. There are many other nicer cafes and restaurants nearby.

We went to Circus on the strength of other reviews on the 'great pizzas".

I appreciate that the cooking is dependant on the cook of the day - we never finished the pizza as we were doubting the quality of not just the pizza but the cooking skills.

Base of pizza so hard that we had difficulty cutting it - seemed to be sprinkled with packet garlic sprinkles, thin strips of basil [hardly worth a mention] and the base was a brought tomato base. In essence 'cheap and nasty' pizza that did not warrant $22.

My recommendation is to eat elsewhere or if you want a pizza go and buy a frozen one at the next door supermarket and heat it up at your residence [probably better quality and considerably cheaper].

I rarely give bad reviews but this place warranted it

We went to an afternoon movie - really comfy seats and you can take your drink in. Afterwards we had a drink by the fire and then came back another day for dinner which was great.

I'm a regular visitor to the Circus Cinema [it's my 'local' theatre]. The theatre is lovely, very comfortable seats, good sound and picture quality. Staff always well-mannered and helpful. Quite often I purchase a glass of wine as well as a ticket; food and drink are allowed in the theatres, which is a bonus. I'd recommend a visit any time.
