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).
Some of the cooked breakfast can be a bit dried up, after sitting under hot lamps. Good service and no rush to leave
We were very disappointed to find that even with mentioning our 10th anniversary and a pre-warning of food allergies in the booking 5 days in advance, they did not make us feel welcome and looked after. I had to mention my allergies on which note a chart was consulted to tell me which foods I could eat from the buffet choices. The starters were fine with a bit of choice for me. The main course and deserts were an absolute disaster though. I had no choice at all for the main course and had to accept what the chef made on a whim, severely lacking in protein. The display of deserts also had no choice for me and only after asking I was presented with dry and unlovingly prepared (packaged) options which I didn't enjoy at all. And only when we complained that our special occasion had been completely ignored we got a tiny plate with three chocolates (which I could not eat due to my intolerances) and 5 berries. We also found the service questionable (having been a waitress myself for many years...) We won't be going back again and would not recommend this place to anyone. What is the point in giving details in your booking when everything is just ignored anyway?! You get much more for your money elsewhere!
Food as always was great, although could do with a little more choice of vegetables, mixed carrots and sweetcorn don't really make the grade. Service was a little lapse, dinner plates and glasses were taken but no coffee was offered, had to get up to ask for coffee and didn't receive the bill when asked, we ended up paying as we left. Overall everyone was very polite and food very tasty.
Always Great Food and choice staff efficient and friendly and Hannah runs the show so well
Wonderful afternoon spent at the restaurant.. Great service... food excellent..good wine selection Wonderful relaxing atmosphere..
The service yesterday was poor.We were clearing our on plates, had to ask repeatedly for drinks etc. Also you charged us for two glasses of the same wine when we only had one.We didn’t notice until later ! We have been lots of times.This was the worst sr ice we have ever experienced .
Excellent service and food We forgot to order wine as no one appeared to ask us,
Food excellent, service good, staff good. Overhaul good value for money.
Great food, but the service was very slow. There didn't seem to be enough staff, so we were left to our own devices. Trying to get the attention of a member of staff so that we could pay the bill or order more drinks was difficult.
We were disappointed that there were no prawns available for the starter and it was surprising that there were no Yorkshire puddings with the beef. Sorry to say not up to your usual high standard. Peter Harvey.
Excellent service great food selection and the setting was perfect. Only came for lunch but didn't leave until nearly 6pm.
Excellent on our first time2.
Always a great meal .... chefs this time were so keen and helpful telling us about all the dishes
Excellent food, although not quite as extensive as it used to be.
Excellent all round.
The staff at Left bank are always very attentive to one and all, and they make you feel very comfortable.
Super venue; Reception staff (especially Hannah) extremely helpful staff and who went the extra mile to accommodate our requirements for our 7 of our Clients visiting Ascot 20th June for Ladies Day, including accommodating a very long stretched limousine. Food plentiful, varied and good quality, restaurant staff and service was first class. Clients wish to return 2020; ..... says it all.
Fantastic we are already planning another visit
Brilliant food as always with excellent service, in a beautiful setting.
As the restaurant was not full, I would have liked to have a table nearer the view of the river.
As good as last year!
Lovely place for special occasions but quite pricey. We visited on Father's Day and it would have been even better if there had been a little treat for dads like the flowers handed to mums on Mother's Day. Just a few chocolates perhaps?
Absolutely our favourite place to go for food and relaxing. Just wish I had more money so could go more often.
Everybody was really professional and friendly. Kent really stood out with excellent customer service skills.
Really impressed with this buffet restaurant. Plenty of choice and all options were hot or chilled perfectly. Really good choice and excellent views of the river. Great for dinner and breakfast. Would definitely come back.
