    Empire Cinema: All the latest films

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Up until 1958, Bishop’s Stortford boasted two cinemas and regular entertainment in its various clubs and dance halls. Ironically, as the town’s population grew in the 1970s, social amenities rapidly declined and local entertainment was generally limited to a night out in a local pub. After several false starts, construction of this £11m leisure complex finally got under way in October 1999 and was completed the following year. Managed by Bishop’s Stortford Leisure Corporation Limited, the complex comprises of six movie screens, a twelve lane bowling alley, restaurants, bar and fitness suite.

  • Three Tuns: Three Tuns

    Iwould really, really like The Three Tuns to be a decent pub. But it's not. And it's not, despite some pump-up reviews I've seen on the internet.
    It's one of those locals that caters mainly for people who know the landlord, and is replete with the bog standard two Greene King non-lagers, but the usual array of cheap but strong lagers.

    There is music, big TV screens showing Sky Sports News and a pool table. It feels very new and very sterile.

    I'd love it to have a bit of character, but it doesn't. It's just really bland.

    The pub has a good history, having been on this site since the early 18th Century. At one point it was known as Maggie's, after the landlady, and was a favourite watering-hole of the train drivers. Late trains were often blamed on Maggies!

    Just a few doors down from The Three Tuns at No 50, is the former Cross Keys pub, now a private residence.
