Exciting Changes at Quod!
It has been a year since we were in the thick of Gees’ refurbishment, which also included an entire kitchen overhaul. Now, we’re delighted to reveal the return of our ‘Al Fresco’ Italian garden terrace, and another major kitchen overhaul at our bustling High Street refuge, Quod Restaurant & Bar.
“Quod kitchen is now live and up to speed…” says Gino, Maintenance Consultant at The Oxford Collection… “…in short, this was a major refresh of existing equipment which had been in place since the 2016 refurbishment. Following the success of the Gees kitchen refurbishment last year, we worked with the same design team, implementing the very latest high-end range of equipment from Mareno. Working with the designers, on-site maintenance and senior chef team, we collaboratively redesigned the kitchen to improve the sections and efficiencies across the kitchen.”
Designed and manufactured in Italy, Mareno has been providing powerful kitchen solutions since 1922. We’re proud to have introduced the flagship STAR 90 range, allowing our team to work with the best and uphold that Quod quality we’re all so proud of.
Rohan Kashid, Head Chef at Quod, shares that the new equipment will help maintain precision in cooking, work more efficiently, and above all, keep his team motivated. The revamp has seen a small expansion with the addition of a prep kitchen, something Rohan is particularly excited about, sharing, “we have a designated area now to prepare raw meat and fish, so it’s completely out of the way.”

Emma Dickson, Head of Human Resources for The Oxford Collection says:
