About The Lounge - The Runnymede
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.
It was amazing food. Our waitress went out of her way for us was really lovely.
The afternoon tea was excellent, scones to die for. Service also excellent.
Afternoon tea was delightful especially our waitress for the afternoon,she really made us feel special
Lovely friendly service and good food.
This was a wedding gift from friends, we attended with our daughter. Enjoyed our couple of hours very much.....food and service so much better than another cream tea I had with my daughters in Feb 2018 at The Shard. Would recommend.
Staff were attentive. Afternoon tea cakes were really tasty, sandwiches a bit bland. Overall a good experience
Having the champagne tea at The Runnymede is always a great experience!
Unfortunately the low key atmosphere was somewhat spoilt by a wedding party that was moving outside but seem to have got stuck at the bar area However the waiter apologised to us for the noise
My sister in law enjoyed her birthday treat, everything including the views from the window watching the river go by.
Amazing afternoon will definitely be back
The food was lovely & the service attentive. The hotel lobby & the lounge were extremely hot & quite stuffy.
Naomi and Anne were incredibly attentive and provided for our every need.
Lovely setting overlooking the Thames. Very attentive staff. Delicious food. Very pleasant fellow guests. Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Recommend.
Would definitely go again
Afternoon tea was lovely at the Runnymede. Kyle was very good in making sure the sandwiches were as my fussy sister wanted them!
I couldn't fault this tea, it was excellent. The staff were very good, the young lady from New Zealand served us, she was very friendly, while being very professional; the food was superb and excellent value for money, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and we will return again ourselves.
We so enjoyed our afternoon tea at the Runnymede. The homemade food was all delicious, our dietary requirements were catered for and the service was superb, thank you
Definitely worth a visit , service was spot on from the moment we arrived. Food fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend trying the bumble bee gin !!
excellent afternoon. The birthday candle was a nice touch
Arrived early for our reservation for a champagne tea but it wasn't a problem & was warmly greeted. Service was excellent staff were very friendly and helpful . First visit to the Lounge & would certainly recommend it.lovely atmosphere & we were not hurried. My only criticism was the cakes were a little too sweet. They even bought out a small birthday dessert with a candle. Overall a lovely experience.
Wonderful service, delicious food all well presented and very fresh. We had a wonderful, relaxing time and the service was gracious and fantastic. Unlimited hot drinks. We would definitely recommend it!
Six of us enjoyed a wonderful afternoon tea. Lovely sandwiches, scones and cakes served by charming staff. Great view of the river too. Would recommend it to anyone.
Afternoon tea fabulous food so fresh and service excellent had such a memorable day thank you x Although hotel was busy with wedding felt attention was made and staff excellent had such good time atmosphere great.
We had afternoon tea at The Lounge.......sandwiches were mostly excellent, scones pretty good, cakes appalling! Sorry but the cakes were over-sweet, synthetic and in the case of the blackcurrant macaroon (we think that was what the flavour was supposed to be) - totally inedible. And this from a patisserie enthusiast! Must do better: I won't be coming back until I am assured of a better pastry chef
Splendid afternoon tea, delightful setting.
