Afternoon Tea by the river

What makes afternoon tea at The Runnymede even more special is our picturesque riverside location. Enjoy a long, lazy afternoon overlooking Bell Weir lock as boats, people and their dogs pass by. Plus, as we are just a stone’s throw from Windsor, it’s the perfect way to relax and indulge after a morning exploring this historic town.

We cater for vegans and vegetarians, adults and little ones alike, each of our menus using delicious, seasonal ingredients. Afternoon Tea is served Wednesday – Sunday from 2pm – 5pm.

Please note a discretionary service charge of 10% will be added to your bill. 100% of all gratuities are passed directly to the team members, which are supplementary to their salaries.

The girls serving us were professional and friendly, we were made to feel special it was a treat. The sandwiches were fresh and tasty but the cakes and scones were to die for so delicious - light and fluffy and tasted so good. We had a wander outside as it’s a pretty setting on the Thames and a lovely sunny day.

Champagne Afternoon Tea - a real treat

Group 3

I cannot express how wonderful they made our afternoon. I have some dietary requirements and had a special tray with absolutely beautiful looking and tasting cakes and sandwiches. I know it can be difficult to make special cakes but well done for the effort they went to. They were very attentive and made the afternoon so special.They brought a special happy birthday chocolate mouse with candle to finish the afternoon. It was such special afternoon.
