Lovely cinema and staff who cannot do enough for you. Prices very reasonable and seats with plenty of leg room. The large cinemas could learn a lot from this place, very clean and no queues. Highly recommend this place.

We both had a fab meal after watching a movie at one of the screens. Such a good deal. We especially loved the aubergine parmigiana and the spinach and ricotta ravioli with butternut squash sauce. The waiters were so friendly, attentive and efficient. We had...More
