Generally really great, but had to what a while for the bill.
Fabulous food and service to match! Would definitely recommend - our visit on Saturday lunchtime was am example of how to run a busy Oxford restaurant. Bravo!
Excellent food. Very attentive staff. No problems at really aside and a chuckle seem to be men wandering into the ladies wash rooms and so would benefits from some clearer signage. A talking point at the table but didn’t apolitically the evening. Other people eating around us enjoying their experience which want you could easily exchange smiling eyes that everting is good
Loved the food and not rushed at all . Service very good . Only complaint I would make is about noise level otherwise a very nice occasion.
A great atmosphere, lovely and professional service, really delicious food
Set menu choice was good value for money.
Presentation of both courses (starter crab mayonnaise , main course steak) was not in line with previous experience and generally seemed rushed and uncared for.
Love that my butternut Squash risotto wasn’t over salted u can taste the sweetness , dish was well balanced. Duck confit was delicious as well.
Dear SelinK, Thank you so much for this review - we're really happy to hear we impressed! We look forward to seeing you next time
The atmosphere at Quod was lovely but, overall, the food was mediocre and overpriced. We had the spiced quail, salmon ceviche, carrot soup and artichoke appetizers. Of them, only the spiced quail was considered very good. The rest were ordinary at best. For our mains we had the spatchcock chicken, venison, and duck. The venison and duck were good but the chicken was very bland and boring. We also ordered several desserts. The chocolate mousse was rubbery and the topping was spoiled. The others were fine. I certainly wouldn’t go back.

Please feel free to contact email@example.com to offer any constructive feedback, and let us know when you next visit and we will make sure you have a fabulous time
Great atmosphere and food with excellent service. The location in the Old Bank Hotel centre of Oxford makes it a great choice
We were staying in the hotel ( The Old Bank) where Quod is the restaurant. I’ve eaten here many times, but a few years ago, so it was good to revisit.
Charming Maître d made us welcome & gave us a lovely, quieter table at the back, it was 8pm and the noise levels were high. Buzzing and there was a jazz pianist playing.
Settled at our table, drinks & menus came fast, the waiter, Virgilio,was smiley, friendly & efficient.
All three courses came at just the right time. Not rushed but no long gaps.
The food was much better than I had remembered. It seemed more inventive, fresher and well made. There is a wide choice and something for everyone. It is not budget, but not outrageously expensive. The central Oxford location makes Quod a good spot for a lunch, mid afternoon snack or a full three course dinner.
Highly recommend it.
Dear Rosa, Thank you for your lovely review. We are glad you had a chance to dine in our restaurant during your stay at the Old Bank Hotel. We are glad to hear you enjoyed food and service. We look forward to see you on your next visit to Oxford.
The meal was good and it is a favourite place when visiting my family. The latest meal was the Sunday roast which was goo except for the beef which was a bit griselly.
Dear Patrickh, Thank you for your review - we're delighted to hear the majority of your table enjoyed the food. Sorry you didn't enjoy the roast beef particularly. We hope you give us another chance soon
Lovely! Food was great
Thank you so much for your review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your visit - we hope to see you again soon
Everything was perfect, it was a wonderful evening.
Dear SabineM, Thank you for your lovely review - We're delighted you had a wonderful experience with us - We hope to see you again soon.
We found our dining experience very good. The waiter was very good and took note of my wife’s dietary requirements, and came and double checked following a discussion with the chef. The resturant was very busy in a good way and our food was very good.
Dear Steve, Thank you so much for your lovely review! Our front of house team is delighted with your comments, hope to see you again soon…
Lovely afternoon tea as a treat for my Mum. The service was very good and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.
Dear KerryH, Thank you so much for your lovely review. We’re absolutely delighted to have made your visit so special. We hope to see you again soon
Had a lovely time with friends - it was busy but we didn’t have to wait unduly, and they didn’t rush us out despite hogging a table for best part of 3 hours. We paid about £60 a head but we had a lot of wine and 3 courses. Really lovely time. Staff particularly lovely.
Dear Debbie73, Thank you for your lovely review - We're so pleased to have provided such a memorable, enjoyable evening for you - we hope to see you again soon
Very good food and atmosphere, but we objected to having a service charge of 12.5% added to our bill. It was discretionary so we didn't pay it - had it been up to us, we would probably have tipped but we found that presumptuous.
Dear Hispanofile, Thank you for your four stars review - We're very pleased to hear you enjoyed the food and atmosphere . I'm pleased you were able to take advantage of the fact that we will always remove the discretionary service charge with no issues. We hope to see you again
Friendly, relaxed restaurant in the heart of a Oxford. Great food and ambiance, delightful waiters and waitresses. One of the best eating establishments we know! Thank you.
Dear Discerning, Thank you for your lovely review - We're glad our food and service managed to impressed - We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Friendly service, excellent food. The wine pours were generous and the timing of the courses spot on. Everything fresh and tasty.
Dear NinaM, Thank you so much for your review. We're delighted you enjoyed your visit - we hope to see you again soon
My partner and me eat here frequently. The food is always delicious, the staff are attentive, and the atmosphere is bubbly without being overly noisy. The frequency of our visits, combined with the fact that the venue is always busy, speak for themselves.
Dear MartinR, Thank you so much for your review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your visit - we hope to see you again soon
We had a lovely evening meal at Quod. It was a busy Saturday night so quite noisy and hard to hear our friends conversation. But just goes to show how popular this restaurant has become since the upgrade. Also it was student drop off weekend so this would have made the restaurant extra busy/noisy.
Our server was helpful and friendly.
The food was good and tasty. We all enjoyed our meal. But the only disappointment was the gloopy, soggy mash. This was disappointing and spoiled the delicious venison slightly. If the dish is going to cost £25, then a little more care over a fluffy, tasty mash would be better.
Overall, the restaurant was great and we will go back again and will recommend.
Dear CazB, Thank you so much for this lovely review. We're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourself generally. Sorry to hear that you were not impressed with the celeriac puree accompanying the venison. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Visited for breakfast, really yummy. Buttermilk pancakes were to die for and waitress went the extra mile to get them for us. Very quiet considering it was a Saturday but a really beautiful and fancy restaurant. Would love to go back for lunch or dinner.
Dear Sabbyscp, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a lovely review - We're delighted you enjoyed your experience with us and you were impressed with our homemade buttermilk pancakes - We look forward to seeing you again soon.
It’s good, nice duck leg
Nice menu, friendly staff, well priced for the location
Dear HelenL, Thank you for your lovely review - We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Food was amazing. And given how busy the restaurant was with it being graduation day , the preordering of dishes and timings worked brilliantly . Very impressed. The food was also fantastic and staff fabulous . Brilliant experience to start our graduation day . Thank you so much
Dear JacquiM, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a lovely review - We're delighted we managed to impressed you with our food and service - We hope to see you again soon.
The food was very nice but the coffee was very poor
We were seated in a nice table for 2. Few minutes later, a table of 4 was used behind us. The chairs kept pushing against my chair and was quite uncomfortable for me.
Dear Divya, Thank you for your four stars review - We're sorry to hear your didn't fully enjoy your experience with us, we're always more than happy to give our guest a different table if requested - We hope you give us another try and we hope to see you again soon.
Excellent food. Generous portions. Quick service. Very impressed given that this was a very busy Sunday lunchtime. Nothing to fault it.

Dear robertP, Thank you for your five stars review - We're delighted you enjoyed your experience with us - We hope to see you again soon.
Ambiance is marvelous. I recommend everything except the risotto, which I did not have this time. Fish and chips are wonderful.
Dear CarolL, Thank you for your five stars review - We're glad you enjoyed your experience with us - We're just wondering if would you be able to give us more feedback on our risotto. if so please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org - We hope to wee you again soon.
Lovely building and a real ‘buzz’ as soon as you walk in. Noisy but not excessively so and still able to hear music playing in the background. Service was a little slow and the staff didn’t know the menu quite as well as they perhaps could / should (but that’s a common enough problem these days).
The menu choice is varied and the food that we chose was very good. The fennel salad with the crab starter was a little bland, as was the split peas with the octopus. Both would have benefitted from some seasoning. The mains we chose were both good. Testament to the portion size was the fact we couldn’t manage a desert.
Would certainly visit again and recommend. Our only ‘gripes’ weren’t serious and, in the case of seasoning, easily rectified.
Dear ChrisD, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review - We do take it all on board and try to improve all the time. We hope you give us another chance in the future. We hope to see you again soon.
Went twice. Enjoyed both very much. The terrace was especially nice. Both servers were very pleasant.
Dear TylerB, Thank you for your five stars review - We're delighted you enjoyed our beautiful Italian terrace as well as the food and service - We hope to see you again soon.
Very fine place in oxford. Not a pub.
Dear Jetman, Thank you for your review - We hope to see you again soon.
My husband and I had a delicious meal -- fish pie, which was the special, and the venison. Both glasses of wine I had, recommended by our server, were perfect. The service was fantastic. This was our favourite restaurant during our two week tour of England.
Dear Stella, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a lovely review - Our front of house and kitchen team are delighted we managed to impressed you with our food and service - We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Nice, buzzy restaurant in the centre of Oxford, which serves good quality food in a great environment, but which suffers from a very overpriced wine list, exacerbated by the 12.5% service charge.
Dear JeremyW, Thank you for your four stars review - We're sorry to hear you find our wine list a little bit pricey but we can reassure you that it's carefully selected by our managers and suppliers to offer the best quality accordingly to the season - The service charge is 100% discretionary, as indicated on the menu and website and we are always happy to remove it without any question. We hope to welcome you back again soon.
We had a beautiful breakfast, we will be returning again.
Dear VikkiW, Thank you for your lovely review - We're delighted you enjoyed your breakfast with us - We hope to welcome you back again soon.
