With 2 AA Rosettes for its classic British food, The Acanthus Restaurant at Macdonald Randolph Hotel boasts baronial surroundings in this 5-star Oxford hotel, dating back to circa 1864. The stately dining room is suitably elegant, reflecting the history of the university city, while the finest British meat and vintage wines are hallmarks of the seasonal Randolph menu.
Right in the centre of Oxford, The Acanthus Restaurant offers excellent pre-theatre dining. Try slow-roasted pork belly with puy lentil stew, or pan-fried black sea bream.
Luxuriant mains include loin of venison and pan-fried pheasant supreme. 21-day aged Scottish rib steaks and the finest smoked salmon are among Acanthus favourites, while the dessert menu tempts with milk chocolate truffle, pistachio mousse and Cointreau Anglaise.
Art-lined walls and plush soft furnishings give the Acanthus dining room a sophisticated feel, with the wood-panelled Morse Bar, warmed by a roaring open fire, hosting events including whisky tasting nights. The Macdonald Randolph Hotel is a 7-minute walk from Oxford Train Station.

It was exceptional, the hotel, staff, food. We visited for a special occasion and we were treated very well. Staff friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed the experience of it featuring in Morse but as restaurants go, little ambience or atmosphere. If it wasn’t for the Morse connection I would not recommend.

One of the best Sunday roasts I have had. I had chicken which was really tasty, other half had beef which he thoroughly enjoyed. There were plenty of veggies and a separate portion of cauliflower cheese which was delicious. We had Brownie and Creme Brulee for dessert - yummy. Staff were very attentive, and the restaurant had a nice ambience about it. It is £23 for two courses and I think it is well worth the money, would have no hesitation in booking again,

Price at hotel higher than quoted - nice staff and very, very quiet - too old fashioned for our liking .... An odour mentioned in Trip Advisor several months ago still in the air .... it unpleasant but not nice !!

We had a very enjoyable meal at The Randolf. We have been a number of times for tea there, and so we know the piano lounge,but have not recently been for dinner. I thought it had been updated quite nicely and the way the seating had been arranged, was smart and contemporary; but not too severe. The tables were nice distances apart, and overall, it looked appealing. We were in the main dining room. The one thing that I think lets it down and makes it look more old fashioned, is the carpets. They look a bit tired and worn. I think it would make a huge difference for them to be changed. I know this would be a great expense mind you! The staff were very nice but not over the top. The food was very good and we enjoyed both courses. it was a fun evening, but the hotel does have a slightly stuffy feel to it;though with its heritage, I know is what a lot of people like about it. It has a good reputation of course, and I can see it appeals to many people. I think the new restaurant competes better than before with the many smart restaurants in town. A clever menu too we thought that means one can have good wholesome dishes and then also have more a la carte with the set menu.

Excellent starters and puddings. Apple and Cinnamon Crumble and Smoked haddock fishcake with spinach and poached egg were exceptional. Steak could have had a sauce. We drank water from a jug-there only seemed to be one jug for the restaurant so we had to keep asking to be topped up-a jug for the table would have been appreciated. Service formal and professional. I didn't realise a service charge was compulsory, before any tips. The hotel wall of fame and lounge area were very interesting-worth a detour.
