An Oxford landmark in the heart of the city, our iconic hotel takes inspiration from Oxford University, with nods to college architecture and notable alumni. Located directly across from the Ashmolean Museum where Magdalen meets Beaumont Street, The Randolph Hotel features locally inspired art telling the narratives of Oxford’s past.


The Alice

The Alice is a bold, all-day dining restaurant and bar serving unique interpretations of Classic British dishes, helmed by Executive Chef Rhys Grayson. Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, pre-theatre dining and afternoon tea, the menu is seasonally driven and largely supported by local farmers and suppliers from Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, and Gloucestershire.

The Alice Bar

The Alice Bar offers a broad selection of wines, craft beers and spirits. Speciality house cocktails include a Randolph Gimlet – in homage to the hotel with white rum, blanc vermouth and rhubarb and The Coeur de Lion, named after Richard the Lionheart who was born in Beaumont Place in the 12th Century, roughly where the Randolph stands today. The Coeur de Lion includes vodka, pineapple, apricot, lemon, dry vermouth and ginger.

The Snug & Morse Bar

Adjoining The Alice, The Snug is an intimate cocktail lounge with the spirit of a bohemian English library, serving drinks and snacks derived from the main restaurant menu.  The hotel’s beloved Morse Bar is an ode to Morse creator Colin Dexter who was a regular and penned some of the Morse books from the bar. The intimate panelled bar focusses on cocktails and whiskey.

The Drawing Room and The Lancaster Room

The Drawing Room and The Lancaster Room are connected spaces for guests to enjoy as they choose – with a coffee and the morning paper, a light lunch, afternoon tea or evening cocktail. The formal rooms overlook the Ashmolean Museum.

Wellness Centre

Guests are welcome to book from a range of treatments in our wellness centre featuring five treatment rooms and wet area including steam, sauna, ice room and jacuzzi.
