Very disappointed with our experience. Have come for Christmas afternoon tea every year for last 4 years and this was not up to standard. In the Lock Bar rather than main atrium so no windows and no atmosphere. Cakes were bland and tasteless, tea was strange colour and not worth the price. Will not return next year.

We had a wonderful experience. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was amazing. Absolutely plenty of sandwiches and cakes! The champagne wasn’t too bad either! We would highly recommend the Runnymede for an afternoon tea.

Lovely afternoon tea at the Runnymede and think it’s a much nicer setting in the loch restaurant. Food and drink lovely, great selection of sandwiches and cakes. Can’t wait to return

I have already sent an email complaint! This was about our 4th visit for afternoon tea as we've always enjoyed the relaxing Lounge area. However this time when we wanted it extra special for my dad's 95th birthday.. we were shown to a dining table in the Lock Bar... not at all relaxing, bright lights and absolutely no atmosphere! ..my parents were facing a white tiled wall so no nice outlook, the sandwiches were awful.. who puts carrot in sandwiches!? Plus when I originally booked I'm sure it was £25 a head! The experience was one that we won't be repeating, it was a complete waste of £140 and a total letdown for my dad's birthday! I feel so cross about it.. the staff were aware of our disappointment and did nothing. I'll not recommend again I'm afraid!

Can not fault this venue for the afternoon tea experience for my birthday. The hosts were very accommodating & moved another table of guests nearer to the main table. An absolute delight.

My daughters and I spent a most enjoyable afternoon tea at The Runnymede on 30th October to celebrate two of our recent birthdays. It was an occasion we would hope to repeat in the future and one we would certainly recommend. Our thanks to all the staff for their impeccable service and kindness. Maureen Shallcross

Sandwich selection was poor - asked for a replacement for salmon as none of the guests liked it and none were given. Selection wasnt the best for afternoon tea.

Great Afternoon Tea especially my vegan option - better than Fortnum & Mason! Very friendly greeting from the lady who showed us to our table. Only downside was we had to ask for more tea rather than being offered. Overall a great experience and I have recommended it to many friends. We chose the Runnymede due to their excellent covid precautions

Not worth visit, I called before booking to ask if the spa was open, I was informed it was but on arrive the sauna and steam room were not open. Hotel dates, breakfast salad was pre sliced and frozen then taken out the freezer so not fresh!
