What a great afternoon spent at the Picturehouse. If you are on holiday in Devon and it rains the options with kids and teenagers are a bit pants. Normally all the other tourists flock there too. The Picturehouse is cosy, it's a proper cinema experience,...More

Mostly dough-based food, pizzas cooked to order, small bar with teas and coffees. The bar staff can be rather off-hand and one is misery personified but if you want a quick, light meal before or after a movie, it is perfectly fine.

Well - delightful cinema etc etc but whole evening totally ruined by husband being charged £19.40 for 2 glasses of wine . He has vowed never to return - they prominently advertise the food prices but strangely blank on the drinks blackboard. Not acceptable.

Cool little cinema, has a bar and cafe upstairs and you can take your drinks into the film. Haven't eaten here but the food sounds good, simple stuff like pizzas. Only thing is the cinema tickets are more expensive than other options in the city....More

My husband booked our tickets, as usual, on line...so easy to do. We have joined as members, which is well worth doing....so many free tickets, reduced costs on rest of tickets, and 10% off all food and drink. Most of the staff are really cheerful...More

Really enjoyed watching the BFG here and for a change it was my kids that were the noisiest rather than everyone else in the cinema as with some of the bigger national venues. Food and drink is over priced as usual but it always is....More
