Tried to find the cinema complex after dark and the signage is awful. Fair enough, the complex is undergoing refurbishment and there is builders 'stuff' everywhere, but come on management, help your guests out. The cinema area itself is ok - pretty much what you expect from Odeon. The staff member (young lad) behind the tills was very unwelcoming and... More

I am not a tall person, in fact I would probably describe myself as short, but frankly who the heck designed the recent seating as it is far too low to the ground and hard to boot! I wonder if the fitters forgot to put the spacers in under the legs. Watched a 2 hour film last night and came... More

Went here to see a film with friends. Cinema is clean and tidy and it was extremely busy as it was a Friday evening. The staff serving the food and drinks were painfully slow considering there was such a large queue and the prices are so expensive. So are the tickets themselves, but that is no fault of this particular... More

I love it when these come up, the tickets are only £5 or free if you have limitless and you can have any seat including premier seats. The 2 I have been to we got Green Room and Blair Witch, all before they were released in cinemas.

There is no iMax facility or 4D screens, so the choice is 2D or 3D showings of current films. The cinema is in an area with lots of car parks next to it, all pay machines but free on Sunday (the attached one, to the side, back and underneath). There's a bowling alley and trampoline park as well as a... More

I went here to see the new David Brent film. I know it's expensive to visit the cinema but £11.50 was a bit much to sit in a low down fusty smelling seat and eating the obligatory ice cream costing nearly £4! Fortunately the film was brilliant so I wasn't too bothered. But I think I'll choose my films very... More

We visited Odeon to watch 'finding dory'. We ordered tickets online which was simply and easy. Wasn't too busy at the tills waiting to buy popcorn and drinks. However one big problem we had was that the seats were just so uncomfortable! Plus very small cinema room and so close to the screen we seemed to left with pains in... More

Premium seats are extremely expensive and prices seem to be increasing. Will look for an alternative cinema in the hope of better value for money!

Nice family theater, they also run screenings suitable for young children or those with special needs (such as ASD) making it suitable for all. The staff were really helpful, we had a problem with the seats we had originally chosen and they were very supportive with helping us change this. They give big ice cream portions!

Overall a nice place to go. I would say the food is a little pricey but it's a trip out so it doesn't matter too much. Only complaint is that when we arrived in the screening room, it was filthy from the night before but was soon cleared up.
