A fab cinema just needs to pay the staff the london living wage. Some of the screens can get a little cold but Star Wars in screen one was awesome!

Came to see a film while staying in the area. The cinema is lovely and the seats were very comfortable but I did think it was very expensive.

We had a lovely time at Ritzy's, we watched a 3d film. Although the staff was really nice and the cinema was great we found it a bit pricy.

The bar has a good wine list. The food is imaginative and the ambience is great. But I'm unhappy to return until the workers dispute is settled in their favour. The place does a roaring trade so why aren't the staff remunerated fairly? And I...More

Tried all day to book cinema seats with the app and even the phone not working due to "technical issues". Got to cinema and they are only taking cash, staff barely able to cope with handwriting tickets and counting money. Kitchen closed early so can't...More

In honesty if you've got deep pockets then you'll enjoy yourself at the Ritzy. But if you're bothered by paying multiples of what you would at a chain cinema for the pleasure of having a beer before your film then this is not the place...More

I love this cinema, it's local, friendly although the popcorn is expensive the seats are comfy and there is a good selection of films on. There was a smell of sweaty feet yesterday however in screen one, perhaps a deep clean is in order?

Dropped in for lunch with a friend. The staff (on the whole) are distracted, inattentive, lacking in almost any sense of 'service', unsmiling, unwelcoming and seemingly unhappy in their roles. They are either lacking training, interest or appropriate management or supervision. There was no experience...More
