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.

Attended Quad to see a film. Decided to go into the cafe bar first. They have a good menu with a range of hot and cold drinks and alcohol, tend to be a bit pricey. From the Tapas menu I selected meat balls in tomato sauce. It arrived in a small bowl with 3 decent sized meatballs coated in a... More

Great central location for a consistently well brewed cup of coffee and a light snack. Good if small selection of cakes and nibbles. Decent range of gluten-free options too.

I come here at least once a week either with my husband or with friends. The food is lovely and the staff are friendly and helpful. My only criticism, hence only four stars, is that it can be difficult to get a seat as a lot of people use it as an office and sit for ages over a glass... More
