Review on The Randolph
Just a mile or so from the trendy pleasures of Southwold, this rather grand-looking former pub was an outpost of the local Adnams empire, but is now run as an independent enterprise. The place is still frequented by drinkers, who congregate in the open-plan bar for pints of local real ale and light nibbles amid comfy leather chairs, sofas and stripped wood floors. There's also a separate area with tables laid up for eating.
The menu is an easy read, with plenty of choice for those who want a snack or a full meal. Quick bites include tapas plates, club sandwiches and baguettes, while the full menu has a fondness for fish - well, this is the seaside, after all. Try a bowl of mussels with crusty bread, deep-fried cod in Adnams beer batter or something flashier such as saltimbocca of grey mullet with herb polenta and a pepper salpicon.
Meat fans might home in on Cantonese shin of beef salad ahead of char-grilled ribeye or confit of duck with egg noodle and vegetable stir-fry, while desserts promise anything from warm pecan pie with maple syrup to apple and sultana crumble. Wine buffs cam choose from a decent selection supplied by local legend Adnams.
