Choice of films were good for a small venue. Staff were very helpful and efficient. Restaurant had a very good vibe with a good choice of food choice to accommodate lots of diets. Being a non meat eater was definitely not a problem either. Every choice made was cooked, served and tasted great. The wine choices were more than we needed too.

Booked the "meal deal"..£25.99 per head for a cinema ticket and two courses off the evening menu. The Red Carpet is situated at the end of the marina, which is stunning at night with fairy lights twinkling. The bistro itself is warm and welcoming with a quirky decor,nice touch to have a bottle of water on the table when you arrive. The waiting staff were friendly and delivered a great service..the food was fabulous. We chose the double burger served with wedges and salad and the 7inch pizza with salad. The salad was fresh and tasty with tomatoes,peppers and couscous and a delicious dressing. We then had a poached pear and ice cream and apple,sultana and cinnamon crumble..both served beautifully and delicious. The cinema is quaint and charming and its no problem to take drinks from the bar in with you.We had a really relaxed and enjoyable evening in this delightful venue .cant wait to return.

Visited Sunday for a coffee and cake. Our usual venue at the Marina was full so we thought we'd try this venue.

Quickly seated and smiling staff. But it took 22 minutes to get a coffee and the place wasn't busy. The coffee when it came was luke warm. The accompanying cake was dry. My wife's choice had run out so she opted for a chocolate cake which again was dry and sickly. At no time did the waiting on staff bother to drop by and ask if everything was OK. If they had of done we'd of said something. Anyway. £ 11.20 later for two coffees and two cakes we walked out leaving the bill and money on the table. Nobody even said thanks for coming by. Make of that what you will.

We visited on Sunday and enjoyed a beautiful roast beef dinner before watching an afternoon film.
Our server Wendy was excellent and extremely attentive.
The atmosphere and vibe is very chilled in the restaurant
The cinema is small but with lovely sized comfy seats.
We had a lovely time and much prefer to experience cinema here!
It's refined and "grown up"! We love it!
