“Could do better”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

I popped in for a drink on the way home from work. The bar staff didn't seem overly enthusiastic, apart from one girl who hovered constantly around the seating area ready to swoop on any knives or forks on the tables that had become unaligned. To have all the tables set up with knives, forks and serviettes seemed a little bit optimistic. The outside area was, of course, gorgeous and well worth the trip for the views alone. Bar prices are okay for the area.

My only real criticism was that there was no wifi. There is wifi for the offices there, but not for the public. This is such a drawback to a business in this day and age.

“Went to see 'not going out'”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Great evening, got there at 5pm. Prioroty seats had all filled up, we got standard seats, which are numbered (we got 1-4) and told to return at 10 to 7. went next door for burger and beer (very nice pub) and returned to get in at 7.15. show finished around 10.45. No parking so parked in street nearby and walked about 5 minutes. Traffic to get there horrendous...

“Good venue expereince for a captive audience.”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We met for dinner before seeing a play at the Studios. I was most impressed with the staff who were obviously used to having to serve a lot of people in a short space of time. I cannot say that the food was memorable as I cannot remember what I had to eat but certainly there was nothing wrong with the quality as I would remember that. I would not make a special journey to go there but it is good for a captive audience if you are seeing something at the Studios.. It was a pity that there was a private function on the outside part so we had to stay inside. If I have one moan it is that it is too dark inside and a little 'closed in'.

“The Last Leg”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Eat at the studio restaurant prior to watching The Last Leg. Staff were friendly and food was prompt even though it was busy. Good food for expected London prices

“One of London's best cinemas”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Excellent cinema with always interesting programming. However, to maintain their reputation for high standards I suggest a much more rigorous policy on latecomers. There are often twenty or more who are allowed admission, sometimes ten minutes into a film. This is very disruptive and spoils the enjoyment for the remainder of the audience who arrived in good time.
