Safari Supper for Sunderland Restaurant Week [ad]

I was invited to the #EatDrinkSunderland Safari Supper to get a taste of what is on offer for Sunderland Restaurant Week in return for me to share my experience on my blog and social media. All views in this post are my own.
It's already half way through March and I've just been so terrible at keeping my blog up to date! I decided to extend my hiatus after getting caught up in a car accident last month (thankfully aside from some whiplash I'm fine!) as I needed to make sure I didn't stress myself out any further. I feel like I'm back on track now though and I'm really excited to be posting again as I've got loads on this year! This post will actually be quite a long one, and my photos have actually ended up being terrible so please bear with me! Hopefully you get the gist of it, but I'm a bit rusty and I was a bag of nerves most of the night!

A Cinema Experience | The Gallery

Anyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am with Marvel films, and with the biggest one yet, Infinity War, out in April I've been unbearable for months. I have a friend who is on the same level as I am when it comes to Marvel, so we decided to treat ourselves and experience this immense film in the Gallery at Odeon MetroCentre!

I'm a huge fan of going to the cinema. I love that feeling when the lights go down and you become immersed in the storyline, the outside world completely out of your mind. I know in the days of Netflix and Amazon Prime, and with the prices of cinema trips ever increasing, a lot of people don't really think about going to the cinema. I genuinely don't think you can beat the experience! And considering how long I've been waiting for this film and the hype around it, this was one film that had to be seen at the cinema!

The Gallery at Odeon MetroCentre offers a VIP experience, and let me tell you, that's exactly what you get! We turned up around 10 past 11, giving us plenty of time to chill and take advantage of all the extras you get in The Gallery. When we arrived, we were shown to our reserved table, which had our 3D glasses and two tubs of sweets on it, plus a Marvel themed reserved sign which was a nice touch! The staff were so friendly, and informed us that we could get as many portions of nachos and popcorn as we wanted - exactly what we wanted to hear!

We both ordered some nachos to start, and although we had fully expected to eat a ton of food, this one portion completely finished me off. I do regret not being able to eat anything else, but considering the time of the film, I don't think it's a surprise. A nice surprise was the free Avengers poster we got too, I can't wait to put it up in my room (once I stop crying over the film that is)

Once the film was ready to start, we made our way to our seats. When you book the Gallery experience, you also get extra leg room and wide seats. This was perfect for me - fibro means I often struggle with sitting in seats for a long time, and considering how long this film was (we got out about 2:55am!) I was thankful to have a really comfy seat with plenty of room. I wish I could afford the gallery every time simply for the seats, but with a hefty price tag, it's just not feasible unfortunately.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed going to see Infinity War at the Gallery. It was absolutely perfect and made the entire experience even better. If there's a film you've been waiting to see for ages, or you're going to the cinema to celebrate something, I would definitely recommend booking into the Gallery!

Have you ever seen a film in the Gallery? What did you think? Let me know if you decide to try out the Gallery!
