About The Runnymede - The Riverside 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 and a chilled drink from our gin bar in the evening.
The Runnymede has covid safe, clean return spot in from the moment I arrived, having a personal welcome outside, temperature check, hand sanitiser & details taken. To then be taken personally through the hotel to where I was meeting someone and shown the one way system. The food and drink was excellent even with a limited bar menu, I like the takeaway sandwich option. Could not fault my experience. Well done Runnymede 👏
Great venue and location. Lovely staff, though could be a little more attentive. Sometimes left waiting quite some time to order/pay bill etc.
Great service and thank you!
Firstly I should say only used the table for around 3 hours so didn't get full value. Secondly, I'd though the table was going to be in the business lounge. Having said that, tbh the tables alongside us were pretty close, so it would have been possible to have our conversations overheard. If the tables could be separated a bit more once they are reserved I think it would be much better VFM and atmosphere would be better as well. Thx
This was given to me as a gift and I really enjoyed it. The afternoon tea was lovely and i was shocked at how much lovely food and cakes we had definitely value for money compare to other places I been where you pay so much and get so little. The atmosphere was quite loud the time we went at 15:00pm on a Sunday , it was very busy in the bar area and it was quite hard to feel relaxed and enjoy the atmosphere. The only other thing was that the table we had was very low down like a coffee table and myself and my friend were having to sit with the plates on our laps as it was too uncomfortable to try and eat with them being on the coffee table. I’ve only just seen on your website that there was complimentary refills on the tea which we didn’t know about which would of been nice to know when they explain what we was having when we arrived. Other then that it was very pleasant and I would definitely come back.
This was a wedding gift and we enjoyed it very imuch and the view outside was very calming and delightful. Thankyou for a lovely afternoon.
Excellent service and treatment by staff, enjoyable afternoon
Lovely place. Thank you for a great afternoon.
Very good afternoon tea Thanks. Both really enjoyed it
The jam used for the scones was disgusting far to runny and no fruit
If some one could let me know what champagne was served with the afternoon tea that would be great, it was very nice and what like to get a bottle or two for myself.
My parents thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon tea and were very well looked after by the staff that attended them. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be returning. Thank you very much.
It was a lovely afternoon with delicious food.
We had a lovely afternoon tea by the river with excellent service and delicious food.
A wonderful festive afternoon tea. A good quality glass of champagne was served and included in the cost of £28. Lots of sandwiches and cakes. Excellent quality and quantity. Food was well presented. Service was efficient and staff did a very good job at a busy time of year.
Always a great day staff and manager Hayley so wonder
As teachers, it was a lovely way to spend our first afternoon after breaking up from school. A real treat.
It was a lovely festive afternoon, this was a treat for me that was bought by my work colleagues for my 50th Birthday in August. Decided to use with my mum at Christmas time & glad I did, she very much enjoyed it. Very comfortable & relaxing. Definitely recommend & staff where very friendly & attentive. Thank you Suzanne.
The staff were so friendly and accommodating
It was wonderful. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the whole experience was thoroughly relaxing and we felt very spoilt.
Spent the afternoon relaxed and in comfortable surroundings, very friendly staff and the festive afternoon tea was excellent thank you, my friend and I will most certainly return and tell ours friends and family how welcome we were made by you all. Once again thank you.
Can’t comment on value it was a gift
This was our 3rd Christmas Afternoon tea, but 5th in total and each one has been most enjoyable. All your staff are a credit to your business and we look forward to joining you again in 2020. THANK YOU
Very over rated. ..you just seem to be cashing in on the idea of afternoon tea. Too many cakes and not enough sandwiches. Staff not to.bothered if you wanted any extra tea..you just had to find them
