Good was good but there are plenty of places in Southwold where the food is good and better. It's overpriced for what it is and it's a pub, Le ROC for example is just as good and is not a pub. Therefore it becomes a...More

Glad it was 'good'. We are a small hotel and community pub, however if you prefer a cafe then we're obviously not the place for you. Thanks for your comments.

I'm pleased you enjoyed the food, apologies for the delay in getting it to you; all our food is cooked fresh to order. I will be sure to speak to the team regarding vacuuming during your meal, this is not acceptable. Thank you

The Randolph changed hands this summer and the food has been transformed. The chef produces such a fantastic menu, combining flavours that you wouldn’t think of putting together. Locally sourced, seasonal foods add to keeping this varied and interesting. We have just had our 2nd...More
