Central venue with cinema, but even more a convenient cafe with wi if, accessible and clean. Staff are really helpful, and service is to the table. Relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Although my experience whilst visiting The QUAD was satisfactory (I went to watch a new film), i felt the focus of the establishment is much more on the older generation. With such a modern building, the potential that comes with the location and other factors, i feel there should be a broadening of the 'target audience'.

I treated myself and a friend to a film night hosted by Patron John Hurt. We chatted with John first and then watched Night Train. Afterwards we had supper with John and had an opportunity to chat about his amazing life in acting. I love the Quad and its aims to showcase films.

Love this cinema and its art house films. Always try to fit in an afternoon viewing when in Derby. The cafe and bar is also a delight. Great selection of drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic and a varied and well priced menu. Efficient service and a relaxed ambience.

Every time I've tried this place there has been a problem (stale scones, beer off) and the staff never seem to have a clue. I expected it to be like the wonderful Broadway arthouse cinema which serves cheap, tasty pre-film meals and good coffee (vegan options aplenty). This place is however pretty pricey and fails to deliver the basics.

We had a great visit to The mini golf it's good value and has been designed so very well and at only £5 for the family. It's on until September and is well worth a visit the cafe is lovely too
