Celebrate Christmas the good ol’ western way
With a sizzling menu of wild-west themed dishes, Smith & Western is the perfect place to add some spark to your celebrations. Their festive menu starts at £21.95 for an appetiser and main, with the option to add a dessert for just £4.25, and a colourful menu of explosive cocktails.
Appetisers include a refreshing Caesar Salad, spicy Ballyoo Tiger Prawns, mouth-watering Seasonal Buffalo Wings, a warming Texan Five Bean Chilli and hearty Loaded Skins.
Their mouth-watering mains include a Festive Burger – a bacon and cheese burger complete with lettuce tomato and cranberry mayo. Their hickory smoked BBQ ribs are lip-smackingly tasty, while their Veggie Fajitas and Veggie Five Bean Chilli offer some spicy options for non-meat eaters.
We highly recommend you save space for desserts which include a delicious Chocolate Fudge Cake, Sticky Toffee Pudding and a Strawberry Sundae.

The Light cinema Addlestone is one!
Whether you’re after the latest blockbuster, opera or theatre or just a bite to eat, The Light Cinema Addlestone has it all. Celebrating its 1st birthday, we talked highlights and the festive season with manager Sam…
What’s been the best part of your first year in Addlestone One?
It has to be opening day, we had 2500 people visit us which was a lot of fun! It’s crazy to think it was a year ago!
What’s been the most rewarding experiences from the past year?
There are lots, but I would have to say making the event cinema experience special for our guests coming to see National Theatre, Royal Opera House and so many other productions has been a highlight. We now even do interval ice creams!
What upcoming films are you most excited about?
We’ve got It’s a Wonderful Life, Last Christmas and the new Star Wars hitting our screens, Christmas can’t come soon enough!
What’s your favourite item on the menu?
It’s got to be the pizzas! They’re freshly made here and baked by our chefs. Guests can even watch the guys stretch them while they wait!
What are you and your team working on right now?
We’ve just launched our party, private and corporate hire packages, we’re super excited to start hosting them.
Why should people come to The Light?
We offer the complete experience with our brilliant team, films, events, pizzas, bar and seats.

Their tasty food, served fast is perfect for a lunchtime treat with your workmates or a pre-movie meal with your other half – but let’s face it, who needs an excuse? Any time is Nando’s time!
