About The Runnymede - The Lounge
The Lounge is the social hub of The Runnymede, with a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere and plenty of quiet corners for a discreet chat. Comfy seating, all-day dining menus and floor-to-ceiling views of the river provide the perfect ambience for informal meetings or simply catching up with friends. The Lounge is open from morning to night for you to enjoy the space at your leisure, from an early coffee and croissant to a light lunch or spot of afternoon tea and a chilled drink from our gin bar in the evening.
We live in Wraysbury on the opposite side of the River Thames. The afternoon tea at the Runnymede Hotel has become our favourite default Christmas, Birthday and Wedding Anniversary present. We have had three teas this year and enjoyed every one! At our most recent we were served by "Jess" who is charming and attentive.
Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Runnymede Hotel, would definitely recommend it.
The only downside was that we were sitting in low seats and we were told they were the only ones available. It’s was a bit uncomfortable for my elderly mum and Aunty.
It was just lovely we enjoyed it all and the young lady who served us was a delight .
We were a large group of 25 seated on 3 tables and your staff were attentive & polite throughout the service. The young lady who sorted out our bill and the various payments we wanted to make was extremely patient & very helpful. Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff. Thank you
We had a wonderful afternoon with a delicious tea in a comfortable lounge. We were celebrating my aunt's 90th birthday and staff could not have been more helpful or welcoming.
Really enjoyed this and you already got my 5* review on trip advisor too
First class. Afternoon champagne tea second to none. Well done RS Hotel.
Lovely staff service and setting.
The lounge was cold and draughty, with doors to the grounds outside being opened all the time as people walked through. It was also very noisy from the bar and restaurant next door. It felt a bit like sitting in a cafe - not a lounge. The food and service however were very good.
Wonderful afternoon tea and the blond lady who served us really put herself out to make it special for my mums 90th birthday - thank you
Most enjoyable Afternoon Tea in celebration of a dear friend’s 21st birthday. Excellent location, food & drink yummy! Very attentive staff. Thank you RUNNYMEDE ! This has been my fourth visit & I’m sure not my last!🙂
The area for afternoon tea wasn’t very private. We thought the way the sandwiches were presented wasn’t very professional and it also seemed as though the cakes hadn’t been freshly baked on site.
It was delicious and the waiter Jimmy was very attentive
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous relaxing afternoon - just what we all needed. Thank you.
Great experience. Very relaxed atmosphere.
The waitress was very attentive and the food quality was as good as our previous five plus visits for afternoon tea. We were surprised that our wedding anniversary was remembered with a mini chocolate and fruit plate. There are lower cost options in the vicinity for afternoon tea, but the setting and quality is worth the extra.
The tea was very weak. Would prefer a bit stronger. Otherwise very pleasant.
Fantastic afternoon tea we were well looked after by Emma. Sandwiches were delightful and very filling but still managed to eat the scone and cakes!, all washed down by a lovely glass or two of bubbly. Will most definitely visit again
We had a lovely family celebration at the Runnymede.
Fabulous food. Lovely atmosphere. The serving staff were particularly pleasant, efficient and helpful. Great time. Thanks
Our cream tea was delicious, but our afternoon was made perfect by our lovely waitress, she was brilliant, so polite and attentive, a credit to your company.
First time at the hotel and was very impressed with the afternoon tea. The ataff were also very pleasent.
Was a perfect afternoon. Was not rushed, the service was great, staff were very friendly and helpful.
Nice tea, great service and value for money. Didn’t like sitting at a low table though, I found it very awkward.
