“Great cinema experience”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Didn't know quite what to expect, people have been talking about this place for several months now and I have to say I wasn't disappointed if like me you hate the thought of sitting in some multiplex cinema then this is the place to visit with a calm relaxed atmosphere.
There were 8 in our party,when we arrived we were shown to our table all the staff we encountered were polite and one even had an amusing sense of humour which to me was the clincher the pomp of yes sir no sir although is sometimes required was not necessary. The food was plentiful with a choice of pizza and pasta dishes if there was one small complaint the ordering of the drinks could have been a lot quicker although as this is a relatively new Buisness venture there will always be slight issues to iron out we had opted for the meal and film so the cost was £20 per person.
The cinema experience was perfect An intimate area which I believe can be hired out for private parties and the one we were in holds around 100 people no rustling crisp and sweet packets to be heard just the sound of people enjoying a beer or glass of wine in an almost living room environment (if you have a cinema at home that is) I think you get what I mean! Overall I would recommend you visit this unique family run cinema make an evening of it you won't be disappointed

“Tasty well presented food”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Great little restaurant at the end of the marina.
We sat inside the restaurant, although seating is available outside within little booths.
Staff very friendly and keen to help you.
Food selection was excellent. I had the BBQ chicken jacket potato which was very nice. My friend had a duck pizza which was also very tasty.
Reasonably priced menu available.
Will definitely visit again if I'm at the marina.

“A Gem”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

I think I will struggle to go back to Cineworld ever again. This is a fabulously intimate venue with two screens. Plush comfortable seating, you can take your drinks in and they have a great selection of new releases along with live shows odd opera and ballet etc. The venue is part of the Barton Marina complex which is a lovely setting. Cinema deals consist of a two course meal plus the film of your choice. The food was lovely. Staff very friendly and our food was served quite timely. I can see that it could be slow if it was busy and the bar was busy. Overall a fab experience and I can't wait to go again!
