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.
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.
Relaxing afternoon tea lovely staff good food perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends
Waitress was amazing and wonderful, tried to be as accommodating as possible. Views of the Thames where we were seating was lovely. Afternoon team was delicious - Would come again. Regards
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.
Love afternoon my Mum and Mother in law thoroughly enjoyed themselves, thank you very much.
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.
Lovely afternoon tea. Always good food and good service. Have tried different hotels for afternoon tea and this rates as one of the best.
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.
Afternoon tea was lovely would have been nice to be offered a selection of teas and also we were not told we could have more sandwiches if we liked. But amazing venue and of the of the best afternoon teas I have had.
lovely atmosphere, great location and good service, what more could you want from an afternoon tea.
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!
We spent a lovely afternoon in the lounge and then on the outside terrace.
Excellent afternoon tea, friendly service, lovely location and great value for money.
Great service, lovely location , delicious food!
I know it was a busy weekend but the service was very sliw
Really nice afternoon tea with friendly attentive service
Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon... Would definitely recommend.
