The Randolph has always been a friendly, comfortable place to go either for dining or just to have a well deserved drink after a hard day. Jenny & Gareth are new owners and have taken over from a very well established couple who owned the hotel for ten years previous, big shoes to fill, and they are doing a fantastic job. The staff are more or less all the same friendly team, with a few new faces. The menu is varied and seasonal, making use of local produce, portions are generous. The Wednesday winter warmers menu is always booked up in advance and rightly so as the price is good and the variety on offer each week is fabulous, including a glass of wine or beer its a midweek treat, we have enjoyed a couple of these nights and look forward to going to more. The bar is popular with locals, its comfortable, relaxing and there is always a friendly face behind the bar to enjoy a conversation with.The restaurant menu changes regularly and the Christmas menus look exciting. We look forward to going to this hotel, its probably our favourite place to relax after a days work.

We enjoyed a second Sunday lunch at the Randolph, I started with the smoked eel which was delicious, my husband had the fish platter which looked lovely, following I had sea bream and my husband had roast beef both faultless, we managed to squeeze in pudding and I had treacle tart and my husband enjoyed sticky toffee pudding both lovely. Thank you.

After an initial mix up, given a lunch menu, though it was evening, and was told the guy would check re gluten free, we were given dinner menu and the the gf version (for me). When food arrived it was absolutely amazing! V 'chef-y' in presentation and delicious. Once initial hiccup addressed, the service was excellent and staff friendly and helpful. Would recommend for everyone including coeliacs.
