A new concept of 'in-cinema dining' at the  Odeon cinema in the Whiteleys shopping centre. A 'finger, fork and spoon' menu designed by Le Café Anglais chef Rowley Leigh features dishes such as salsify fritters with aioli, venison chilli and passion fruit cheesecake, and can be ordered from your cinema seat at any point during the film screening. Odeon promises food will be placed on 'sound proof tables' to ensure minimal disruption to other viewers.

This is great (especially being a wheelchair user). Most cinema seats are so uncomfortable, but these seats recline and you have the luxury of ordering food and getting served, making you feel like you're on a first class flight.  Food is good, desserts even better.  Although, it is a bit awkward eating in the dark whilst concentrating on the film...staff do try to be discreet, but can be distracting too.  I don't usually enjoy the cinema experience as sitting too long in the same position without moving for hours is painful, but with the reclining seats, it's a lot more bearable.

The Lounge should only really be used by people on first dates and those who like to constantly talk through films. 


The bar outside is pretty slick and impressive and the large seats inside are comfortable and spaced out enough that the ninja waiters can be easily ignored (if they're serving others) and you can't hear others whispering as they're so far away.


The food is okay but well over priced. For two people, you can easily pay over £50 - though the Shirley Temples are pretty delicious, I don't think they should be priced the same as a regular cocktail in the real world.


The waiters are pretty stealthy throughout the film though they are pushy and process your bill in the last (and usually most important) 10 minutes of the film.


If you are trying to impress someone or have masses of money you want to burn on a dinner and a movie, make sure you turn up on time as the film generally has no ads and starts on the dot of the stated start time unlike other cinemas.

Really pleased with my recent trip to The Lounge, seats were awesome and food was good. All round a good night out and would go back again next year.

This cinema experience is definitely not worth the money. On arrival the bar is pretty slick, the seats are large and comfy and I felt really pleased that I had given it a try... Then the food came. They claim to have a great chef who has created this "foodie" menu. I don't know how any chef worth his salt could let food like that leave the kitchen. It wasn't fit for McDonalds let alone a place that is charging £13 for the driest bun a hot dog has ever seen with the most minimal scoop of chilli con carne on top. £13 for a sushi platter again disappointed with a unbelievably small portion. I was wondering if they were actually having a laugh at our expense. The "fillet" beef sliders, obviously from the same dry bun company that the hot dog came from, they were the size of canapés priced at £15. A few other disappointments later and the bill came to a shocking £95!!! We hadn't eaten before we came and were still starving. I left with a sick feeling of having just flushed a total of £140 down the toilet. my advice would be eat before and got to enjoy the seats.
