Food and drink
The lunch and dinner menu are the same. Pizza Metro is Quod’s fun idea (half a metre of up to three pizzas of your choice). The Jersey crab, duck confit and steak frites with British rib steak are all excellent. You can also call in for three levels of Afternoon Tea between 3pm and 5pm. Wines are available by the glass, pichet (around half a bottle) and bottle. The pichet reminds me of the flask in which I did science experiments at school, but it’s a sensible measure if you’re dining on your own.
Noisy and animated; there's live jazz, art and big leather banquettes. The fact it opens extra early for May morning revellers reflects Quod’s desire to be at the heart of everything that's happening in Oxford.
Friendly and stylish but not prompt. Depending on noise level it’s not always easy to make yourself understood.
In a prominent position on the busy High Street, taking up the ground floor of the Old Bank Hotel. All Souls College and the University Church sit just opposite.
Expect to pay £20-25 for two courses.
Linked to Gee’s and the Old Parsonage, with which it shares Mogford jazz nights.
