Lovely afternoon tea sitting overlooking the river. Helpful and friendly staff. Excellent selection of sandwiches and cakes so much we couldn't eat them all so were given boxes to take some home!

I didn’t enjoy my experience at all. The service was appalling. My husband and I had our newborn with us, and we requested for an area with space for a pushchair before confirming the booking. This was not the case upon arrival. We were given a space with no room for a pushchair. The waitress serving us started talking to us about my baby and she touched/ stroked my newborn’s face whilst serving everyone else with dirty hands, without even asking. This is not appropriate at all. Absolutely shocking! I was horrified by this. She unsettled my baby. This afternoon tea was for our wedding anniversary. The afternoon tea experience was horrible. The food wasn’t great- we weren’t even told what is what on our platter. We were told that they stopped making a certain sandwich when it was detailed on the menu. We waited ages to be served our tea. Waitress made our newborn really unsettled that we had to leave within 30mins of being there. I would not reccomend this place to anyone.

When we ask our family where they would like to go for a Sunday lunch (for 10) they always say the Runnymede! That says it all, really

Sandwiches were very good ......scone was lovely....fancy cakes ...Victoria sponge was lovely but all the others were too sweet and sickly couldn’t eat them. A couple of slices of fruit cake would have been a lot better. Luckily we had a voucher, I would of been horrified to have paid the full price.

For the Afternoon Tea there were far too many cakes. I would suggest you have max of 2 per person, and have more savoury items. The scones were nice.

Food was lovely and was great that they catered for my allergies. Took AGES to get drinks. Wasps inside. No air con on and the room was ROASTING! In this heat you should be able to swap tea/coffee for cold drinks but was given no choice but tea or coffee. Was unbearably hot there. Wouldn’t return in the summer

Really lovely afternoon at the Runnymede celebrating a friends birthday with afternoon tea - very good value, in a gorgeous setting on the river. Staff were extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating - the best service. We weren't rushed away, it was just a perfect afternoon with good friends.

Ann & Sophie looked after us really well, they were friendly, helpful & attentive. Very tasty sandwiches and congratulations to the 'cake-maker' for her very unusual & tasty cakes. A really great afternoon - thanks to all.

Very good venue for a ‘hen party’ afternoon tea. The sandwiches and individual cakes were amazing. We were given a great seating area in the conservatory area. Would highly recommend.

We love going for afternoon tea at the Runnymede. We receive a lovely variety of sandwiches, cakes and drinks both hot and cold. We always have good service and because tea is served in a small area it always feels personal.

Had a lovely afternoon tea. Feedback from the group was the cake was a little too sickly. Could have done with some fruitcake or lemon loaf. The sandwiches and scones were lovely though and most of the staff were very friendly. The cost of additional bar items and additional food was extreme though. We asked for 2 bowls of fries which cost £10! And the prosecco at £42 a bottle was massively inflated for what it was!
