We had a lovely afternoon tea in The Lounge. The food was delicious and varied making it a lovely tasting experience too. The service was fabulous and friendly. You not only accommodated our request to be seated with views of The Thames river but also surprised us with a 40th birthday chocolate treat for my friend. Thank you to the Runnymede Hotel for a lovely afternoon and memory, making my friend's 40th birthday celebrations continue before catching her flight back home.

I had an afternoon tea with my 8 year old granddaughter and our waitress was extremely helpful and efficient, making it an even more special occasion.

Beautiful surroundings and wonderful service - thank you. I do have a comment about the telephone manner on my two contacts by phone as neither really gave me a good impression as they lacked warmth and interest in the conversation and were very matter of fact/dismissive to the point at which I was not sure how the afternoon would pan out. That said, we had a great afternoon with wonderful food, and our server (a young chap whose name began with 'D') was extremely attentive to our group. Thanks again.

Afternoon tea was lovely, staff lovely, spa facilities lovely - room was small and dated but was fine, breakfast was a real let down and felt like I’d paid too much money for the service that I recieved and wish we had skipped breakfast in bed and gone to find a local cafe. Items were missing from my daughters breakfast that we ordered and my eggs on toast came cold and the bread hadn’t been toasted or buttered. Cold scrambled eggs isn’t the best !!! Also our tea was delivered with no sugar so my daughter couldn’t drink that, due to time constraints I could call and re order - for the cost of breakfast I feel very let down - all other services were fantastic on the other hand. Perhaps skip breakfast though if you are looking to stop here

Cakes delicious but sandwich fillings a bit bland. Sandwiches a little hard edged as if they had been out and not covered; we were a 3.15 sitting! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience though as it was my birthday tea.

We booked afternoon tea for our 3rd wedding anniversary and had the most wonderful time. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was second to none. Having been married at the Runnymede in 2016, we look forward to our next visit.

We were made to feel welcome from the moment that we entered the Runnymede. We were escorted to the tea area where our waiter offered us a choice of seating areas. He was absolutely charming and the service was perfect. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, and we’ll be back!

The service was amazing, the food was delicious but the tempersture in lounge area was quite cold and noisy due to the large groups within the reception area side.

We really enjoyed our time here. It wasn't perfect; on of the 11 had a severe allergy to seeds and though the restaurant had made sure she had non seeded bread, they forgot that fruit (strawberries, blackberries and raspberries) have them. We did point this out and they were extremely apologetic and did everything they could to rectify it. Lovely staff and warm place.
