Met some friends for lunch on a Saturday. The restaurant is in The Runnymede Hotel which was very busy and the restaurant soon filled up. It's a carvery, so you serve yourself but the staff are very attentive with drinks etc. The starters were excellent, great choice, very fresh. The deserts were also great, I had a delicious mini trifle... More

Always a really excellent breakfast here, although it can get busy. The service was friendly and so much choice. Lovely airy feel to the place and nice position overlooking the river and hotel grounds.

We met our daughter, husband and two boys for lunch in The Leftbank Restaurant. We have dined there before and knew we could find food for two picky little boys. This time we had to go back to get additional favourites. It is our fall-back choice for meeting family and friends and has never let us down.

Really disappointed. The seafood starters were just prawns in the shell and smoked salmon (also some sushi but looked very dry) The salad dishes were pretty bland and the main course roast - mushy cauliflower cheese and very rubbery roast potatoes. Had to ask and wait for gravy and for custard for the puddings. This is catering on a huge... More
