About The Runnymede - Leftbank Restaurant
The Leftbank Restaurant provides an excellent buffet dining experience with the stunning backdrop of the River Thames.
Our chefs provide a huge range of popular dishes, from hearty full English breakfasts to sumptuous lunches and delicious dinners. The wood-fired oven, rotisserie and hobs are always in action – a theatre of cooking right before your eyes.
Spoilt for choice? Buffet-style eating means you can help yourself to as many of the dishes as you want (and we won’t count if you come back for more).
3rd visit here and never disappointed. Great choice of starters and puds and never hurried. Staff very helpful too. Will come again.
Excellent choices of food. If you are watching your weight having the buffet choice is great as you can pick and choose your indulgences.
Thank you to all the staff That made us feel so welcome with a large group of children with us to help celebrate my dad‘s 90th birthday. Takes us two hours to drive there. So that just shows you how much we like this place. See you all again very soon thank you
HI- I am a regular at LB. Yesterday the salad leaves were a both limp and there seemed to be very little cheese. It would be great if there were more vegetarian mains to choose from. The aubergine courgette bake wasn't my favourite. However, it is always good and the staff are lovely.
Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The best buffet we’ve ever had as all the food was tasty, nicely displayed and quickly replenished. The staff were very attentive too.
The staff were fantastic and the food was great! Really enjoyed our night
The meal was lovely but didn't think the staff were attentive as much as they should have been. Apart from when we sat down at the start of the meal I had to get up and ask to get their attention during the meal.
We had lovely meal in Leftbank. It was my sister's 30th birthday dinner and we even got a courtesy cup cake with fruits and a candles to toast to the birthday girl. Will definitely go back. Thank you for a lovely meal
Great food great service great value for money .. great venue !
My party were made to feel very comfortable by your lovely starf . The staff were very intentive and even picked up that it was our wedding anniversary and gave us complimentary truffles with our coffee . Thank you all . Xxx
Food & Service on our visit were wonderful cannot wait to return xx
I have posted my comments on trip advisor. Booked to return on the 23rd August and bringing two American friends as our guests on the 30th August. This only endorses my ratings as shown.
I cannot fault a single thing during my stay . Every member of staff were so helpful and pleasant. The food and variety was simply amazing . I will definitely recommend to my friends and will be booking to return again very soon. It was a perfect break .A thank you to everyone .
It is the only place we go for the best meal and atmosphere, all our friends feel the same way.
Excellent choice of food, very helpful staff.
The food and service we received yesterday were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our annual buffet at the restaurant. However, we were disappointed not to have any prawns on the fish table, nor any roast potatoes for our second course, although the roast pork was delicious; perhaps another roast, e.g. lamb, is a suggestion? We appreciate that it was a "special offer" so perhaps the details I've mentioned were not included for that reason? The service was very friendly, extremely helpful to our elderly friends and most efficient. We shall definitely return next year! Thank you.
We came Sunday afternoon and to be expected it was very busy. It was extremely noisy and being sat very close to the entrance the music was quite overwhelming. One of the water glasses had lipstick on it. The choice of starters was very good and really plentiful. Obviously not trying it all I can’t comment on everything. The salmon was delicious. The watermelon salad lacked feta. The mains were a real disappointment, I tried a little beef and pork. If I had my eyes closed you wouldn’t have been able to tell the meat apart, both completely flavourless. I wanted to go for the fish but they both looked very dry and there was nothing that really accompanied them well. The cauliflower cheese was good and nice and al dente. The roast potatoes were small and hard, not crispy or fluffy inside. The carrots and peas and greens were cooked ok but very bland. The apple sauce is the cheap and nasty stuff that was so artificial. I wasn’t impressed by the roasts at all so would like to see what you do on other evenings. The desserts didn’t look overly appealing to me so I had a little fruit and the cheesecake. The melon was raw and the cheesecake was soggy, no biscuit crunch on the bottom and flavourless. The comments from the rest of the party were that the lemon tart was nice, the meringue was rock hard and had no chew, the creme brûlée had no crunch on top. No one tried the panna cotta, but whoever labelled it need to learn how to spell it as they wrote, “pamma cotta”. I had a little cheese and this was nice and had a good flavour, lacking a choice of chutneys. We would have had coffee if asked but alas we weren’t. I think the drinks menu is limited. In my opinion the cold area is the hi-light but the hot food and dessert needs a lot of improvement. The staff were very pleasant.
Had a great time food and service 100%. Breakfast is amazing. The team that looks after the bedrooms are outstanding, the rooms are maintained to a very high standard and team are friendly and helpful.
Hotel and staff were absolutely excellent. Food was amazing and beautifully laid out with a good selection of choices for starters, main meals and desserts. Highly recommend for dinner parties and any other occasion. Thank you Runnymede.
Perfect food , and excellent staff. As always.
Super service as always, food even better than usual, so much choice that everyone has plenty to choose from. Can't wait for my next visit!
I really love the Runnymede Leftbank. Beautiful food. Healthy and delicious, fresh and prepared and presented well. I brought a friend along for the first time yesterday. she also enjoyed the food and atmosphere and location very much. Generally the service was OK BUT on arrival my friend and I waited for ages at the 'check-in desk' while the member of staff stood chatting to a customer who was not waiting to be checked into his table. He was chatting about something else and the conversation went on and on and on. Eventually I interrupted the two of them and asked the member of staff if I could find my own table. She then said that she could do it for us ! ! This was poor service and I felt embarrassed having taken a friend to your hotel for the first time and had sung the praises of The Runnymede during the drive to the Restaurant. The member of staff could easily have called over a colleague to book us in and take us to our table OR the easier option for her would have been to have said 'excuse me' to the gentleman she was having a lengthy chat to, and then got us checked in. It was very peculiar and not what one expects at a decent venue. We arrived at 1.22pm. My friend and I then had a lovely meal. At the end of the main course we had to clear our own plates away after waiting an awfully long time for staff to clear the plates. I also had to go and look for a waitress to order some drinks half way through the meal. A bit of staff training would not go amiss !
