The cafe serves delicious food, especially the milkshakes, and while busy, it always delivers with quality and service. We were at the Quad to see the Beautiful interactive exhibition, which was so wonderful we ended up taking our 9month old daughter to see it twice.

2 cinemas, comfy spacious seats,some good films and top quality theatre performances beamed in live. A nice reasonably priced cafe/restaurant at street level where you can eat before the performance or just have a drink beforehand and take it into the cinema if you wish. My wife and I are regular visitors.

Not only are visitors made welcome but they can enjoy great fresh food, wander around the art exhibition and pick choose from a... More

The cine supper is very good value for money and the food was, as always very good. I prefer going to this cinema as apposed to a large cinema complex, as... More

The Quad is a beatiful cinema in Derby which shows the best in non-mainstream films. It also does great food and runs incredible events such as it's art gallery and photography courses.
