“brilliant!!!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

lovely old cinema, recently refurbished with excellent sound system and comfy seating. New cafe and bar, serving breakfast, lunches, teas and evening burgers. Sadly, was recently bought out by Cineworld. let's hope they keep the mature staff at Abbeygate and preserve their excellent standard of service there - a far cry from the appalling standards of service at the Cineworld multiplex in the town.

“Nice Addition”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Fairly simple menu but a good one. Superb for pre or post cinema dining. Seating could be more comfortable but that doesn't detract.

“A GREAT WAY TO WATCH A FILM”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is how all cinemas should be. Very comfortable seats and friendly staff. You can have a glass of wine or beer while watching a film. There is also a very nice cafe attached to the Picture House which offers up gourmet burgers, snacks, homemade cakes and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. A lovely place to watch a film.

“Quite delightful”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

After eating a wonderful meal, with the freshest ingredients and interesting salads, we settled down to watch the film. Glass of wine in hand and comfy seating - rather a civilised way to spend an evening. We will return soon.
