The Light Redhill haven’t released their menus yet, however, if their other sites are anything to go by then you’re in for a treat.  You can expect a ‘60s style American diner and hopefully some exquisite street food from resident vendors. The Light Sittingborne, for example, host Fratellis (pizza), PITTSBURGER (burgers, dogs, wings & sliders) and Coffee Cabana.

The Light are purposeful about every aspect of their business, making sure you get the very best experience. So, unsurprisingly they also have a carefully curated drinks menu. Selected beers, wines and cocktails. Plus, some venues partner with local breweries, like The Light Sheffield who serve beer from local Abbeydale Brewery and The Light Walsall who work with Backyard Brewhouse.

James Morris, CEO, The Light Cinemas said, “We are delighted to be able to bring a whole new entertainment and leisure experience to the people of Redhill and excited to be part of the town’s transformation. We are hugely grateful to the Council for their support and look forward to working with them to help realise our ambition to make this the best leisure facility in Surrey.”
