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

'going in to the QUARTER was like walking in to someone's 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.
