Very popular, good choice of food and drinks, food is not cheap, especially as it is not waiter service.

Mostly I've eaten there find their menu super. Be it modest sandwiches and tapas or main, it's all delicious, and with gluten free options. A really nice place to meet for a meal a drink and a chat. Also a wide selection of events.

They have good vegan choices amongst the regular menu, the food is fresh and well-presented and very reasonably priced. It's a cafe rather than a restaurant, but there are sofas too, and altogether has a good feel to the place. We also had a very nice bottle of red wine for just over £14.

A nice place for enthusiastic filmgoers wanting an inexpensive and good quality bistro meal before (or after) the show. Only a couple of screens so a limited programme but other visual arts activities and projects provide added interest. Convenient location in the centre of Derby with nearby car parks.

The architecture and interior decoration are rather average and disappointing. However, the cafe, cinemas, art exhibitions etc. are a good addition to the few cultural attractions in central Derby.

Very relaxed atmosphere and decent food. Friendly staff and the place has cinema for watching the latest films. They also have exhibitions in their gallery.. There is also several clubs that meet there such as a knitting club on Mondays. Super fast wifi is available and many students visit because nobody bothers them even if they only have one drink...

The Quad is one of the best places to see a film, cosy with excellent seating and I must say it is never that busy that you have people that close to you.
