“Much Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

Had a refit and a new screen so now worth going! Buy your sweets elsewhere though as its very expensive for refreshments. Always a good selection of films and bargain shows at weekends are great for children.

“A hidden gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

We went here as a second-best option after Barnstaple cinema weren't showing the film we wanted to see. We were pleasantly surprised. There is a really nice foyer and bar area where you could easily sit for an hour or so before / after a film. Nicer than most of the other pubs in Ilfracombe! Screen 7 (strangely names as I think they only have 2 or 3 screens!) is great - it has proper armchairs and tables and loads of legroom! They don't take Orange Wednesday "2-4-1" but that's OK as its only £2.99 to get in anyway! How cheap?!
