Restaurant description

Built in 1864, the Randolph hotel remains one of the most significant Grade II-listed buildings in Oxford. Nestled in the heart of Oxford, the Randolph hotel oozes character and quintessential English charm. The opulent high ceilings and luxurious décor of the drawing room set the scene for comfort and indulgence.

Designed by head chef Rhys Jackson, the afternoon tea menu at the Randolph is packed with carefully sourced and responsibly produced, British seasonal cakes and patisserie.

The pastry team at the Randolph have crafted the Signature Afternoon Tea inspired by British dining trends throughout the centuries. Their sandwiches, scones and pastries are prepared fresh each day, including delights such as Cox apple choux and chocolate orange Battenberg.

Find the Randolph drawing room on the corner of Beaumont and Magdalen Street, just a 15-minute walk from Oxford Train Station.

    This was a high priced product, the food was OK but not exceptional. Furthermore the service was poor, we had to wait half an hour for any food to arrive, not good enough for afternoon tea.

    Went to celebrate my husband's birthday. I had booked a signature afternoon tea with a glass of prosecco at £39.50 per person. This was not offered at all - we were offered signature afternoon tea with a glass of champagne at £44.50 each - I wasn't going to make a fuss as it was a birthday treat but this was not what I booked. We arrived at 4.30 p.m. - at 5 p.m. we were given the glass of champagne followed at 5.15 p.m. with the tea. When my pot of tea arrived I had to ask for a cup! Finally at 5.30 p.m. the tea arrived (an hour after we arrived). The food was o.k. but the cakes were a very uninteresting selection and it was not good value for the money being asked. (It was a similar price to the afternoon tea we had earlier in the year at Cliveden and not anywhere near as good in the selection of cakes and the service). Service was automatically added to the bill - paid just over £100 for a very ordinary experience.

    Lovely afternoon tea, tasty and well presented. The staff were attentive but not intrusive and the setting was fantastic - lovely and relaxing. Only minus would be that the sweet treats on departure were not forthcoming so felt a bit cheated by that - I notice from other reviewers that this would seem the norm so for the sake of trading standards I feel this needs to be removed from the menu or addressed so that they are received. All in all though it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    The dining experience was excellent and the waiting staff very attentive. The afternoon tea is expensive but for a special occasion it’s a treat but as I’m disabled at the moment it was very difficult to get into the hotel. The elderly porter put the ramp down but was a little offhand. When getting back down to the street two members of staff assisted and were very kind. To be honest it’s dangerous for the disabled at the moment as there is only one steep access because of building works.

    We took afternoon tea at The Randolph and it was very nice indeed. Service was excellent and the tea was also good. It's a criticism of the hotel that I have generally, but the decor could do with a bit of love and attention.
