Great scones!

I met with a few friends to have a coffee and cake. Great service and delicious scones😋 Although I didn't stay at the hotel, I wouldh highly recommended to anyone as it's a good location and has links to London. Also it's on the river with great views.

I had booked this for a friend and myself, but as she was unable to attend I requested bringing 3 others and the Runnymede were very happy to accommodate. We had a lovely afternoon and the tea was really lovely. The staff were very obliging, and my request for a change to the sandwiches was happily accepted.

11 of us (work friends) had a lovely afternoon tea recently overlooking the river. The food was excellent, plenty of sandwiches, scones and pastries/mini cakes, all absolutely delicious. Unlike some other places I have visited the staff do not pour your tea for you, or keep asking if everything is ok, but they are always around if you want to... More

On Friday 21st Aug,.we returned to the Runnymede Hotel for my birthday tea. The food was excellent as always, beautifully prepared, fresh sandwiches, delicious pastries and scones, and plenty of everything. If only the service had been half as good! We waited 45mins to be served, the waitress asking me, instead of my guests, what they wanted to drink!The staff... More

Enjoyed a fabulous tea at the Runnymede at a table overlooking the Thames. A lot of trouble was taken to accommodate one of my companions who can't eat certain foods. We have also eaten in the Leftbank and Lock and Grill Restaurants and they are equally good.
