Stylish, contemporary design describes the space which houses an amazing collection of young British art. Sandra Blow, Craigie Aitchinson and Gary Hume adorn the walls. There is a spectacular heated terrace where diners can enjoy a morning coffee, the superb value two course lunch or a cocktail.

Surprised there was no hand sanitiser at the door and staff did not wear masks given how close they get serving food and collecting plates etc. Food was okay but not better than average. Service very fast which must mean the food was ready prepared in the kitchens.

Measures in place to help protect staff and customers from COVID-19 less obvious than many other restaurants. More old normal than new normal. Vibrant, popular, prompt and attentive service, good food.

The food was very good , however it was a long wait to.order drinks, followed by having to ask to.order food and then after another long wait, had to ask for the bill which was then wrong. It's nice not to be rushed but it was as if we were invisible.

Both food and service were excellent and felt safe. I have since eaten in other restaurants (not connected to Quod) and the experience has been far less good so the Quod service stands out even more as excellent in light of this and proves eating out can still be a lovely experience in these strange times.

Went for lunch but picked off the main menu as nothing took our fancy from the set lunch menu. Food was lovely salmon cooked just right but a little too much salad. Had sorbet for pudding which was very refreshing. Coffee was a little bitter but nice and strong. Only thing that was disappointing was the non alcoholic cocktail which was a lot of money for a very small drink. Would go again
