“Boxing Night 'White Christmas' Treat”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We visited for the 5.30 pm showing of 'White Christmas' on Boxing Day - we pre-booked a sofa on-line, and it really is worth paying the extra. You get a lovely comfortable sofa, with loads of leg-room (my 6'1" boyfriend really appreciated that!) and a shelf that serves as a table. We texted our drinks order to the bar and our reasonably priced tray of drinks arrived within 5 minutes - no messing about with money at that point, you settle your bar bill at the end of the evening.

This is a charming little cinema, the staff are lovely and friendly and the atmosphere was fabulous.

Love this wonderful little picture house - comfy seating, brilliant selection of films and the only cinema I know to sell real ale as well as cocktails!

“A little gem”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

This little cinema has the charm that the large cinemas don't. The staff are friendly and welcoming; the cinema is comfortable; and the choice of films is interesting and broad.
