We went to an afternoon movie - really comfy seats and you can take your drink in. Afterwards we had a drink by the fire and then came back another day for dinner which was great.

The restaurant was a delight. Both the entree of the mozzarella balls and calamari were exceptional and we both loved the chicken curry main. Really top class restaurant food. Delicious and delightful. Lovely wait staff too.

Order your food so that it is ready when your movie has finished! How many cinemas do that!? The theatres (2 of them) are lovely. Very comfy seats and you can take your food and drink in with you! This is cinema +

Uncommunicative staff member sold us movie tickets eventually . Used our own mobile torch to find way into the dark theatre after the staff member ignored the comment that is was hard to see. Pleasant surroundings but staff assistance was 0% on this occasion.

Perfect way to get respite from the super heat in Martinborough! Such a lovely little theatre, we really enjoyed having a glass of wine and seeing a movie here- I noticed some people even had a meal delivered into the theatre whilst watching the movie....More
