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

I am lucky enough to live right in between Derby and Nottingham so can take my pick of the two cities. When it comes to cinema I always choose Quad over Broadway (Nottingham). Having a real homely feel the customer service is personable. The facilities are fabulous with a great cafe to boot. The actual screens are of great variety... More
