Dine 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.

Autumn Afternoon Tea_The Runnymede-8


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.
