Owner description: Offering far more than an ordinary cinema, our day time up market coffee shop and gallery turns into a wine bar in the evening alongside the Circle and Auditorium Bar. Audiences have the choice to watch films sat at candlelit tables on the ground floor or to snuggle up in the double love seats, regular seats or one of the four Royal Boxes in the circle and enjoy a drink from any of our bars, before, during and after the film...Films range from blockbusters to classics, family favourites to art house and independent. We have Chum Club for kiddies on Saturday mornings 10-1pm and family films every Saturday afternoon and special extra films in the holidays.The Regal is a true community venue and in addition to films and screenings hosts a broad range of events including art exhibitions, an educational program that includes keynote lectures, live music, Sunday Sessions of acoustic live music, comedy and other live performances, a live sports feed, fashion shows, exhibitions and corporate events...

Booked online and found our seats which were on the first floor at the far end offered a very poor view of the screen. When I enquired of a staff member if it was possible to change she didn't seem surprised when she realised where we were sitting. We were given a table right at the back on the ground floor. Husband was sitting next to door and said it was noisy. Main problem was paying nearly £15 for two glasses of wine and a packet of sweets. Mine was red and like vinegar and my husband's was white and warm. Dreadful. Wouldn't buy wine at venue again. Tickets were £18.50 for two online which isn't cheap. Furthermore why do you have to pay a 50pence charge for using a card even if it is for a purchase over £10? This place is a little too in love with itself.

I went with friends to see Le Mis-booked a bit late and surprised that the cinema was almost fully booked on a Monday night-shouldn't have been.The atmosphere was great-booking tickets was easy although I had to do it by phone. But by calling I was offered the chance to order cheese and wine, which was on our tables on arrival-a good selection of cheddar goat and soft cheese and biscuits. The wine was a nice mid bodied red.
We could rearrange our seats to suit and all in all, although the wine was at restaurant prices, the whole evening was much cheaper than a night at the pub and a whole lot more entertaining.

This is cinema as it should be. A superbly restored building and lovely friendly staff.
We saw 'breakfast At Tiffany's' on Valentines night and it was a really memorable experience.
Candlelit tables and glasses of wine while we watched the film. We will certainly be returning soon.
I am not generally a cinema fan but this is a superb place and a great night out.

Just experienced this wonderful place for the first time, and completely bowled over by it. Lovely restoration; wonderful spacious comfortable armchairs around tables so you can eat and drink as you watch a film. My only hesitation in recommending it to everyone is that I might not be able to get in at the last minute if it becomes too popular.

NB: free parking after 6:00 pm in a nearby public car park behind the cinema.

What a wonderful evening we had last night at The Regal for a special evening showing "Breakfast at Tiffany's" for Valentine's night. This is a cinema with a touch of class ... beautifully renovated, friendly staff, comfy seats, plenty of room to relax and enjoy the film, drinks and food from the bar, candlelit tables. Fabulous! Just what film-going should feel like ... a real treat. Will definitely be returning very soon.
