At leftbank there are stunning views of the river Thames from wherever you're dining. Linger over gorgeous seasonal food all freshly cooked and served buffet-style so you can help yourself to a little bit of this, a lot of that...you can tuck into three, four or five courses! The food style is English with gorgeous international influences and it's all prepared freshly for you by people who love food. The wood-fired oven, rotisserie and hobs are always in action - a theatre of cooking right before your eyes.

We dined in the Leftbank Restaurant and, although it's our 4th time here, it just gets better every time. The buffet is of high quality and plenty of choice. The staff are very friendly and always smiling. The restaurant itself is excellent, very modern and spacious. Can't fault it!

It's not always a good idea to return to somewhere you once thought almost perfect; too often subsequent visits let you down. Fear not if that 'somewhere' is the Leftbank restaurant in the Runnymede Hotel.

went there on Sunday for my birthday lunch. There were literally dozens of hors d'ouvres followed by beef, pork, venison, chicken, fish and vegetarian mains. There were dozens of desserts to choose from as well as many different cheeses. The only down side was the price of £32 excl drinks and coffee. But what the heck, birthdays come only once... More
