The Picture House is a great example of how an old building can be restored and put to another use. The look of the pub is fantastic and is one of the most beautiful pubs in the UK. This coupled with a good range of...More

Ordered the steak and Kidney pudding and it came very cold. We also ordered the Shanghai noodles as I am a vegetarian, they came with a large piece of chicken on top when chicken is an extra £1.50. Somewhat disappointed.

Small microwave meals. Come out cold most of the time. The breakfasts have always have something missing. The carpets are sticky and it stinks

I was a regular customer, not anymore. The door staff would not let me in despite the pub still being open for business and me being sober. The pub wasn't busy so why? Who cares they are useless

The Picture House first opened its doors to the cinema-going public on the eve of the First World War. The cinema screened films until the 1990s, and is now this Wetherspoon pub. The Picture House opened its doors to the paying public for the first time on 23 February 1914. On that day, admission prices to a matinee showing of The House of Temperley ranged from three pence to one shilling. Well situated in the town's main thoroughfare, the cinema flourished during the 1920s. A new era was ushered in on 28 April 1930, when The Picture House screened its first 'talkie' - The Last of Mrs Cheyney, starring Norma Shearer and Basil Rathbone.
