Description: 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.

In a very good hotel on the banks of the river, if you go for fine dining then go elsewhere but if you like a wide selection of good food which you can select and take back to your table then this is a great place and very reasonably priced. There is no set formula other than go up and... More

Our local lunch club came to Runnymede in August and had a wonderful buffet in the Left Bank. Would recommend it to anyone, but please book well in advance! Great value, brilliant food and lots of it, and courteous staff.. Well done Runnymede. See you again very soon!

Another great buffet meal with friends. A nice choice of starters, superb main courses from beef, sweet'n'sour, various veggies - including great veggy options... and freshly cooked to order shell fish etc. A great variety of puddings - nice to see something more interesting than the usual offering in other venues... My only negative is a rather boring selection of... More

Five of us had booked for lunch at the Left Bank restaurant of the Runneymede Hotel Egham. We didnt know at the time that lunch was at the promotional price of £20 a head which included a glass of Sangria. There was plenty to choose from. We started with seafood, consisting of large peeled prawns, smoked salmon, smoked mackeral, shushi,... More

We were staying at the hotel which exceeded our expectations too. Dinner was included and we were expecting a general Buffet style selection of food so delighted that the food was fresh and delicious and seafood was cooked to order. Gary was amazing as our server. We will definitely be back to eat here and stay here again.

Booked an evening table with my wife at Leftbank following particularly good reviews from a number of friends and colleagues - all of whom certainly know a thing or two about good dining. We were greeted promptly and after custom-made introductory cocktails from the lounge, were shown to our table (ideal for the beautiful sunset view over the lazy Thames... More

Have eaten here many times over the years but on visiting yesterday I thought there has been a real deterioration in the various offerings. There was no Roast being carved bt the chef and the roast chicken portions were oddly flavoured. No roast potatoes just boiled or au gratin neither of which were enjoyed by any of us. The salads...

My wife booked a table to celebrate my birthday with a couple of friends. We arrived on time and we were promptly shown to our table. On our way to the table another guest dropped a plate which smashed on the floor. The head waiter asked a group of three waiters if they would get a dust pan and brush.... More

Contemporary design, visited this many times. It's not cheap but it is not expensive for what and where it is. Knocks spots off of a lot of the other hotel restaurants in this sector.
