Lovely food and inspiring Art and events

The sort of venue that puts a town on the map. Great place to visit. You can order great food day and evening and it is in a casual relaxed environment.

Quad is a really great place to spend the evening. It shows some mainstream films as well as foreign language and special interest or cult films. The cafe has a nice choice of light meals, pasta, burgers and sandwiches, lots of naughty cakes and sticky goodies, and serves a mean flat white or any other coffee you fancy. Lots of... More

I come to the quad quite often and recently came to watch a little chaos. When I went in to purchase the tickets the woman on the counter asked me 'it's in the box will that be ok?' I did think this a strange thing to say but said it would be fine... Turns out there was probably a reason... More

All staff are friendly and professional. The food tastes good but more wholefood would be nice. I like the atmosphere but it can be very noisy since they took the sofas away there is nothing to absorb the noise. I had a green and peach tea and it was nice.

Met up today with friends undecided where to eat. I'd been to the Quad last week just for coffee and browsed the menu so decided to give it a go. The burgers were the gourmet kind and the portion size was huge. My friends said they were delicious, I opted for the risotto, priced £7.95. I would definitely eat here... More

We had a cine supper.. There is an ambient atmosphere in the cafe. The service was good and I had an excellent Quad salad. Chicken, bacon, egg and cheese on top of a salad which had a really tasty dressing. It is really good value for money.
