Had a lovely afternoon at this little gem, not an expensive outing. Lovely restaurant nearby, Dorchester is a nice place for visiting.

Friendly helpful staff and easy access. Good prices for weekdays with small increase at weekends. Still only cost the price of one ticket at other places! It's comfortable and easy to book. Plenty of films to choose from.

Sorry, I’m not there right now but not too expensive from memory. Plus M&S is across the road and the cinema doesn’t mind you bringing your own drinks etc
