Ruth and I were lucky enough to share an afternoon tea at the Runnymede Hotel with Chris, Alex and Linda last Bank Holiday Monday.
The Runnymede is conveniently located very close to junction 13 on the M25 motorway, near Egham. I understand from friends that the spa facilities are extensive and quite marvellous
We had pre-booked a table for tea and were seated in the lounge, overlooking the Thames river. Although it was a sunny day, there was quite a stiff breeze, and there were some comical moments watching passers-by coping with the wind.
The tea was excellent and plentiful – we were completely unable to finish the cakes! It was also good value (certainly compared to London venues) at £17 for tea, or £23 for tea with a glass of champagne.
