Arriving early for an early lunch reservation with several old friends, I was met by a short woman in a suit who seemed to be chatting with her parents or relatives. Having dismissed them, I was shown to a long thin table right at the back near the kitchen door. Upon asking about a relocating to a table more conducive... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I remember your table and remember being very sorry we were unable to relocate you - we simply don't have round table quite large enough! The other manager at the door was actually just saying goodbye to some very regular guests and we're both very sorry to have... More

Attached to the Old Bank Hotel, one of the best in Oxford; very well situated on High Street close to major Oxford attractions. Food is delicious, if expensive; great choice; friendly service, but can be slow during peak periods when restaurant is crowded. Have eaten there on several occasions; never disappointed.

We had not made a prior booking and we were lucky to get a table by the window. The menu was very varied and we decided to opt for the two course meal of the day which offered a variety including a vegetarian option- all very reasonably priced. The service after selection of what to eat was rather slow, considering... More

We called in around 4pm to have something to eat before the LANTERN PARADE which started at 1830 hrs. We were warmly met and shown to a table in the window and ordered our food and drink, which when it arrived was of top quality. I ordered salmon fishcakes and my partner orders a mixed pizza and both were excellent

We’ve actually celebrated Thanksgiving in places as exotic as Ho Chi Minh City and Mandalay. But try as we might we weren’t initially able to find a restaurant in Oxford serving Thanksgiving dinner, so we opted to book a restaurant that had duck on the menu, on the theory that it was a close enough cousin. To our delight, when... More

Thanks so much for leaving us a review. It's so great to know that you managed to find us a little home away from home on your holiday.

We had made plans to go to a different restaurant but after looking at the reviews of Quod and the recommendation by the landlady who owns the house we stayed in for the weekend, we wandered past in the afternoon to see if a table was available. We were advised they couldn't take a booking but to pop by, luckily... More

Quod was a perfect place aesthetically to visit for a Sunday morning brunch when in Oxford for a weekend away. Beautifully decorated with very attentive service and great coffee, it was a pleasure to be there. Unfortunately, the food was slightly over priced, small in portion and not especially well cooked. The fruit salad was tiny and bland, the pancakes... More

Thanks for your review. It's great to know that you enjoyed the service, decoration and coffee (100% Guatemalan!) and very surprising to hear that you found the chopped fresh fruit bland (fruit is delivered daily and chopped to order) and you didn't think our porridge or pancakes were fresh - both are absolutely freshly prepared by our breakfast chef.

10 years ago, Quod was a refreshing change to the general mediocrity of Oxford restaurants. The ingredients were fresh, the dishes were thoughtful (if not perfect) interpretations of British and European cuisine standards, and the service was friendly. Now, however, as the standard of eating out has gradually risen in the city, Quod has not kept pace. The pasta is... More

We had dinner at Quod last night. Following a warm greeting at the door, we were asked where would like to sit which was a nice touch, rather than just being shown to the most convenient place for the restaurant. The room is quite fabulous. Huge, fairly noisy (when busy at least) with pillars at the back, one of the... More
