We were a party of 11 and had a very good meal. The two 7 year olds were quickly feed with their chosen pizzas and provided with colouring crayons. Our order from the al la carte menu arrived together and was well presented and of high quality. We were not rushed or felt that we had outstayed our welcome. An excellent restaurant for a relaxed family gathering.

We had a fabulous time, real treat for us both. A bartender or bar manager suggested the basil daiquiri and that was gorgeous. Then at our table we had outstanding service from Vanessa. Atmosphere was great and the food was delicious but made extra special by the people working. Thank you for a great birthday :)

It's always a good start when you can choose your own table, right? This happened to us in Quod the other day, the waitress was super nice, helped choose from the menu and even offered to cook the duck breast the way I liked.

Lovely atmosphere. We were welcomed at the door and asked where we would like to sit.
Immediately our waitress appeared with the menu and we ordered dr inks.
We gave our order and shortly afterwards our food was served piping hot. What a treat.
We did not have dessert but ordered coffee. The experience was lovely. We never felt rushed but were given time to eat and chat.
Would definitely go there again

Excellent as always. Five of us, plus a well-behaved labrador had a very enjoyable Saturday lunch here recently. The food is always excellent quality, the service is spot on, and the ambiance is lovely with a nice buzz to the place. The tiniest niggle was that the kitchen got into a bit of a muddle with the three different burgers in our order, but we were happy to sort things out amongst ourselves, and were given a free bottle of Sauternes to enjoy with our desserts.

We have enjoyed Quod on the many occasions we have eaten there. It has friendly efficient and knowledgeable staff; and an excellent menu with wide ranging choices including for someone following a gluten-free diet; and reasonably priced. Very popular so need to book. Can be noisy on a Friday or Saturday evening and at weekend lunchtimes.

Seared duck was absolutely delicious. My waiter was cordial and attentive. Martini was excellently prepared. Pear/chicory cheese salad fell a little flat with flavor - needed citrus as the cheese overpowered the other flavors, especially the pears.

Excellent Sunday roast - and dealt with food allergy in a perfect fuss-free manner. Service was very good and looking forward to returning soon. The only slight disappointment was the lack of acknowledgement that it was a birthday visit - would be nice to put a policy in place that makes some minor acknowledgement of such occasions.

We had to request drinks menu. Then ask to order drinks by going to the bar area. Then we had to ask to order our starters. One drink was forgotten and one dessert was forgotten. Staff absent. Also had to ask staff to take our coats. Given the establishments desire to be top end, this fell very short of the necessary standards.

Food was good.

We were there for a special
Occasion which was spoiled by non existent service.

Restaurant was loud too, however it was a Friday night but do be mindful
If hard of hearing!

Quod is always great and so it was on New Year's Eve. The restaurant was packed but the service was as good as usual - attentive, friendly, helpful, interested. The food was great too at a completely reasonable price. We had a marvellous evening and look forward to many more visits this year. Well deserved praise for everyone - thank you!

Fortunately we had booked our table, because it was very busy. The waiter was very attentive and explained that the service was slower than usual because they were expecting half the number of covers. We did not feel ignored at any point. The food was very good and good value. All in all a great way to spend a leisurely Monday lunch time between Christmas and New Year.

We were staying in the Old Bank Hotel and booked a table via open table in Quod restaurant.
We waited by the host station at the hotel entrance but no one acknowledged we were there. My wife asked at the bar to be told to go to the host station by the street entrance to be guided from there.
We were seated at our table promptly and from that point it was great with attentive staff, excellent food and lovely surroundings. The only down side was the volume of the background noise which made it difficult to place our order. It was like trying to order drinks in a night club.
The food cost was very reasonable but I thought the wine bottle prices were rather on the high side.
We would definitely return due to the excellent service we received once seated
