Macdonald Randolph Hotel

Beaumont Street, OXFORD, OX1 2LN

The Rosette award for this establishment has been suspended due to a change of chef. Reassessment will take place in due course under the new chef. A liveried commissionaire welcomes guests to this landmark city-centre hotel, a substantial building on a corner site. It's as well known to television viewers as it is to locals, thanks to Inspector Morse, with his watering hole named in his honour (the Morse Bar). Conference and wedding facilities are all part of the package, with the restaurant like a baronial hall, its walls adorned with the crests of Oxford colleges and double-aspect full-length windows looking over Beaumont Street and the Ashmolean Museum. Service is on the formal side, which befits a Victorian institution with much oak panelling and vaulted ceilings. The cooking, though, is firmly in the 21st century.
