This is genuinely a unique offering, with superb food served in their restaurant and bar, as well as a large patio area for Al Fresco dining, then a quaint independent cinema and theatre.

Woodbridge Cinema and theatre, 'The Riverside'This Woodbridge cinema feels very ‘Victorian’ and is such a wonderful change from the huge multi-plexes that we are used to nowadays.
