    Really enjoyed Quod. Chilli and ginger Margarita amazing. Our food was nice. It had a very buzzy atmosphere and was quite noisy. Only small issue was the tables are really close together. This didn't bother us but maybe a problem if you want a quiet evening.

    Don't get me wrong I love The Quad but the service last night was not good and did spoil the evening. The waitress spilt water on my menu as she poured, spilt wine on the table as she poured, stretched over me to serve food pushing me out the way to do so, pushed my husband several times as she scurried past, interrupted our conversation to take orders shall I carry on?!? Not what I expect. Unfortunately the food also lacked it's usually presentation and general standard. I know it was busy but......

    Had afternoon tea with a friend on a Saturday so very busy and noisy but that was expected. I booked the tea in advance. The table was very small and almost didn't fit everything on it, the waiter asked if we wanted to have the tea with the food which was odd and and seemed surprised when we ordered the high tea for both of us and not just one. Also had to ask separately for plates. Overall a nice experience and the food was all good. Just a few confusing moments with the staff.

    We booked a table well in advance and even mentioned 'special occasion' (which was true). They tried to give us a table right by the entrance where the door would be opening and closing all the time and people passing by all the time. That's a table to be offered to those who do not make a reservation and just come by, trying their luck. We were rather annoyed and declined the table, and we requested a better table, away from the entrance. They prepared a new table for us in 10 minutes or so. Food and service were good, and we had a good time.

    I’m an infrequent red meat eater on environmental grounds but thought I’d treat myself to a steak. The steak was so fatty with visible tubes, undercooked in places. The pepper sauce was bland and cold and the chips overcooked. My friend wasn’t wrong in saying Quod is no better or worse than All Bar One. The service however was glorious! Two funny and attentive waiting staff so we didn’t challenge the 12.5% service charge.

    Main restaurant area very noisy but luckily sat at back near the outside quad which was quieter. Odd range of food on menu,all sorts from basic burgers, pizzas , chicken tikka masala to steaks with a few specials, over priced for what we had. . Steak best value and good. Service good and made effort for birthday event.

    Waited 35 mins for a member of staff to come near to our table to bring afternoon tea menus as that is what we had booked. In the end we gave up and went to the bar to ask. No apology or smile. Then waited again for them to be delivered. The waitress was friendly when she did appear hence 2 stars not zero. Not all of the teas contained the smoked salmon sandwich, some had poor substitute. One of the cakes in particular was extremely dry and tasted old. The scones were ok but the jam so runny it would not stay in place. Very disappointing for the price and what was supposed to be a family treat. Service charge already included in the bill so awkward to refuse.

    you get what you pay for I guess - you want quiet, unobtrusive, efficient service, good food and drink in classy surroundings in the middle of Oxford, it will have a price - at least they properly deliver - like so few do - well done

    If anything a little lack lustre atmosphere as it was so quiet but otherwise a fabulous breakfast and a fantastic view. Freshly squeezed orange juice is just delicious everytime. Crashed eggs and full breakfast were amazing. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon to be avoided if you don't like your eggs really rich / creamy but sure that's probably down to personal preference. Our 4th or 5th breakfast visit and we will call again.

    A lunch to celebrate a birthday, so I noted this on my reservation request. And it was acknowledged from the moment we arrived. We were very early. Our table was ready but we chose to have cocktails and nibbles at the bar. Great cocktails! Moved to our table for lunch. The red wine was already decanted and waiting for us. All of the food was delicious. And we had to have the day’s special dessert - pancakes - as it was Shrove Tuesday! And the little birthday treat was happily received too. The staff were all helpful, friendly and charming.
