Our family enjoyed our time at Focal Point. A big thumbs up for the Chicken Main, Kids Menu and our Chocolate Brownies they were all delish, partner wasnt too keen on the sauce over the Lamb Shanks and unfortunately his Shanks needed reheating but otherwise we had a lovely night!

Disappointed we couldn’t get the lamb shank, as we were going through the menu we were told most of the things we wanted they didn’t have it in stock finally on our forth selection they had it in stock. Frustrating experience, it would have bern better being told in advance they didn’t have certain meals and drinks available as it would have saved us time reviewing the menu to make our order.

Wow the food was amazing and well worth the affordable prices, great staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Only thing I would say is that there needs to be more variety on the menu.

So impressed with the service at Focal Point - staff were attentive and friendly, very approachable and happy to answer our questions regarding food preferences and dietary restrictions that one of our group had. The food was absolutely devine - presentation 10/10, good size portions, cooked to perfection. Having the sauces served on the side an added bonus - so good I wanted to drink it out of the jug! Highly recommend this restaurant.

First time having a meal at Focal Point and it was delicious! The serving size surprised me as most places have small portions but no, was great to eat a meal and feel very full. Couldn’t leave without have a desert and surprised again the serving size was a whole plateful! Service was great, presentation excellent, food nice, hot and fresh. Definitely will go again. Highly recommended.

I had the salmon dish, followed by Affogato for dessert. One very happy tummy at the end of my dining experience.

We were blessed to be waited on by the fabulous Nicole who served us the delicious food that she sometimes cooks herself. The salmon always has a unique twist, depending on the chef du jour I presume - and tonight's stack version did not disappoint. My daughter and I shared the salmon (the staff were only too happy to provide an extra plate) as well as the bruschetta (which was to die for). Father and son enjoyed their open steak sandwich and chicken nuggets respectively. A great meal out in a warm environment. Thank you.

Great experience! Easy to book online, arrived earlier but no problem seating and taking orders early so we could make the next movie session. Great range of drinks and food selection, loved the Thai Beef salad and portion sizes are large. Kiddies meals were great too. Prices were great as well. Highly recommend to all.

Great service & friendly staff, the menu has a good selection of reasonably priced meals ideal for a family night out. The portions are a good size and very nicely presented.
I had a nice night out with my three sons, they said they were stuffed so that's always good.

My husband and I enjoy going to Focal Point as the food is great as is the service. We ate our meal and then ordered coffee and a sweet treat from the cabinet to take into the movie. It is very convenient right there at the cinema so only one car park needed.
