One review of “Quod”

    Richard Rosser, Editor

    25th January 2017

    The refurbished Quod Restaurant & Bar reopened earlier this year following a concentrated six week refurbishment, with the highlights a brand new bar, kitchen and menu.

    Before casting our eye over the new menu, we were knocked out by the new bar, not literally, but it’s a stunning focal point which helps to open up the central part of the restaurant which, hitherto, had been a panelled area for staff to congregate. By opening up the bar, the atmosphere has been enhanced, not that it needed a boost as it’s already undoubtedly one of Oxford’s most popular and vibrant restaurants.

    The new look menu combines European classics with a strong presence of the finest seasonal British produce. I particularly enjoyed my Avocado vinaigrette with crab and Salmon fishcakes with lemon butter sauce. The restaurant blackboards announces daily specials, with roast beef, lamb or pork available on Sundays, from the owners Rofford Farm whenever available.

    Founder, Jeremy Mogford is known for many of Oxford’s most iconic settings, including the Old Parsonage Hotel, Gee’s Restaurant, the Old Bank Hotel and Quod, which he opened in 1998. ‘Quod has always been ‘all things to all people’, attracting the widest range of customers, great for a quick bite, an after-work cocktail, a long lunch on the terrace or perfect for a special occasion. I feel that it’s been absolutely imperative to retain everything we love about Quod, yet taking this opportunity to make it even better’ says Jeremy. ‘We look forward to welcoming back our huge following of regular customers to join us for a drink at our new bar, where they can continue to admire their favourite paintings by young, prominent British artists’.
