“Anothere excellent dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

A really good dinner yet again courtesy of David, Donna and staff. Excellent choice on the menu and wine list, pleasant and attentive service. We had a table in the window of the bar area which was lovely. Thank you

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Eaten here on two occasions each time I have been tempted to three courses something I do not normally do. The normal menu you was good and the specials all looked fantastic. The food is good and it is fairly priced, I shall certainly be visiting again!

“Great service, shame about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

A large group of us visited or Sunday lunch. I cannot fault the service, it was absolutely brilliant. However, the food just didn't measure up. My partner and I had roast beef. Sadly the potatoes were reheated and tasted awful, neither of us ate them and the gravy was pretty tasteless too. We had thought that maybe we had just had bad meals but since the weekend we have heard that more of the group were also unhappy at the quality of food. There were 21 of us and it certainly didn't feel like the occasion to be making a fuss.

I would just like the management to take notice that reheated potatoes on a £12 dinner just isn't on.

Dear Suzweasel1

I am so sorry to learn of your disatisfaction at The Randolph, last Sunday. We pride ourselves on our sunday lunches and can assure you that we do not 're-heat' roast potatoes and that these are made fresh every sunday lunchtime. I am sorry that they gave you the impression otherwise.

Negative reviews are always investigated fully and thank you for giving us the opportunity to review this.

I have contacted you directly and look forward to hearing from you

with best wishes

“Excellent birthday lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We went for a friends birthday meal last Sunday. The welcome was warm. The setting for our meal was great, in a separate room. Despite the main restaurant being busy, we were served well and quickly. The menu choices were good, and the food was well presented and very tasty. All in all, a very enjoyable time for all the birthday party!
