The New Cafe, Bar and Music Venue In Hanley 'eat, drink and listen @ the QUARTER'


The Quarter Coffee

Two things influence everything they do. First of all, they’re independent through-and-through. Secondly, they’re fiercely passionate about coffee.

Maybe they should add a third: they’ve been doing this since 1864, sticking true to their principles all the while. Along the way, they’ve led the UK’s espresso revolution and introduced the world’s first triple-certified espresso.

The QUARTER is proud to work alongside this ethically focused company to provide our customers with high quality coffee and tea products.

Try our Tiki Bean Coffee and Suki Leaf Tea to experience the wonderfulness that is Matthew Algae products.

The Quarter Takeaway

Walk in, peruse the menu and take it away.  At the QUARTER we have an extensive menu of foods, hot and cold, that can be taken away for you to eat on the go, at your desk or while you shop.  Our sandwiches and delicatessen items are freshly prepared in our kitchens along with savoury and sweet pastries.  We will hand wrap your chosen sandwich and provide you with accompaniments to go with it.  Alternatively you can choose from our hot food menu which will be whipped up in a jiffy by the kitchen for you to take away, with cutlery to eat it with.  Ring through your order and tell us when you want to pick it up and we’ll have it ready for you collect and pay for.  We also offer corporate takeaway packages for any event, be it an office meeting or a birthday lunch.  Simply call us to discuss your needs and we will make it happen.


The Quarter Deli

At the QUARTER we offer a flexible and sociable eating option in the form of a delicatessen.  You can put together your own combination of items from a changing selection of meats, cheeses and accompaniments and either take them away to eat on the go or have them presented on a platter to dine in with.  This option of eating is great for those pre-theatre evenings, perfect to accompany a glass of wine or simply a way of customising your food with out the fuss of changing a recipe on the menu.  Our delicatessen is available from 8.00am until last orders at the bar.  At the QUARTER we truly believe that any time is a good time to eat.


The Quarter Parties

You want a party then the QUARTER will make it one to remember.  Our strength is the attention to detail needed to make it truly special.  We can provide the space for any event you want; a christening, birthday, wedding, baby shower, children’s party, work celebration or for anything you may need.  We have the choice of using our first floor special occasion room or keep it relaxed as part of the ground floor space.  We can organise any theme you require and have specialists on hand to liaise with you on every detail.  For larger events we can organise to close the venue for a private party, lots of notice is needed for this to ensure we don’t disappoint our day to day customers.  We will tailor the food to compliment the event and pride ourselves on great value for exquisite delivery.  We will organise entertainment for all age groups and have qualified experts to conduct events for under 18’s, all DBS checked and skilled in working with children.  Contact us at the QUARTER to discuss your party needs.


The Quarter Bar

Join us at the QUARTER for your favourite tipple, be it alcoholic or not.  Our bar selection incorporates a selection of beers and wines from around the world, some will be QUARTER staples and other may change depending on the season or trend.  All beers are bottled for freshness and convenience and our wines selected from high quality suppliers.  Your comments on the selection will be greatly valued to ensure we have what you want each time you join us.  Alongside this we have a select cocktail menu to suit all tastes with speciality and seasonal cocktails for every occasion.  Our ‘fizz’ menu will give you a decadent choice of drink to share or to savour yourself.  Pair one of our drinks with something equally tasty off the menu for that perfect night out.  You can order interval and post theatre drinks at the bar and have them ready for your arrival at the QUARTER.


The Quarter Live

Here at the QUARTER we want to have lots of different things to ‘listen’ to.  Our live programme of performances will encapsulate the performing and creative arts and provide a platform for local and non-local artists.  Music of all genres will be celebrated; poetry, comedy, debate, radio, recorded music, the spoken word, conversation, sounds in any form will be showcased at the QUARTER.  If you are a performer, know a performer or simply have an idea you want to share then please contact us at the QUARTER.  We will ‘listen’ to your ideas and help to bring them to life in our venue.  We are passionate about the arts in all forms and want to be the preferred choice when it comes to intimate, quirky and diverse performance spaces in Stoke-on-Trent.  Follow our ‘Events’ section to see who and what is performing at the QUARTER.  ‘Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.’ Plato.

'going in to the QUARTER was like walking in to someones comfy home, where you immediately felt welcome and safe. The food and drinks were presented beautifully and tasted delicious and it was nice to have live music playing whilst we were out for the day.
