Owner description: The Red Carpet Cinema & Cafe Bar is open from 10am until 11pm, 7 days a week. We are located at Barton Marina, Barton under Needwood DE13 8AS where there is free parking and some lovely shops and walks around the lakes You can eat brunch, lunch or dinner in the Cafe Bar or just pop in for coffee or a drink without watching a film. You can also watch a film in one of our little cinemas (you don’t need to be eating with us to book a cinema seat). You can also book our Film and Food Night Out which consists of a two course meal in our cafe bar followed by the film of your choice

We, being local, have watched this place being built and looked forward to trying it out, so what a disappointment today's visit was. The tables aren't numbered so therefore the waiters were coming outside and guessing who had ordered what, the drinks took forever to arrive and I had asked what beers were on draft and got a bottle, my wife asked for a large white wine and received a small Carafe and these two drinks cost me £12.85.
Inside seems sparse and from what we could hear suffered with the same delays as the people outside were suffering.
The Waterfront has no proper competition.

Lovely new place, great concept , food was good- service terrible glasses arrived piping hot, food arrived but no knives and forks without further request, very slow and chaotic trying to get into film - nobody knows how it works , staff not trained - simple questions just couldn't be answered. However it's very early days I guess - even more surprising no management was evident at all on first Friday. Lovely food and good atmosphere would go again.

A cinema with a cafe, now to me that's a little different especially regarding where its situated.

We decided to drop in for lunch as it has been open a week. Nice menu with some appetizing meals. Enjoyed the food, it was good quality good atmosphere and nice staff.

Will go back for sure and utilise the 2 course meal plus a film and will let you know how it went
