Lovely comfortable leather reclining seats. Good view wherever you sit. Sound and visual quality is brilliant. I liked the fact you could take a glass of wine or cup of coffee into the film.

Love coming to the cinema here, it has such a homely old-fashioned feel and really feels like more of an experience than vue or cineworld. Such big comfy seats and the atmosphere is lovely, maybe just expand he drinks and food selection.

So relaxed and grown up..lovely seating and being able to take a glass of wine in with you is very nice. Doesn't attract kids or people with no taste or values..just grown-up people who love being in nice surroundings.
