If you often find yourself wishing you’d chosen your friend’s meal when you eat out, the Leftbank Restaurant is a must-visit. As everything here is served buffet style, food envy is no longer an issue. Although the food is without a doubt the star of the show, the setting comes a close second. Located within the stylish Runnymede-on-Thames hotel, on the banks of the Thames, the restaurant offers guests the chance to enjoy outstanding views while they dine on seasonal cuisine. The food is modern British in style with a few interesting influences thrown in.
Experienced chefs cook up a storm in the theatre kitchen, and there’s a superb selection of wine sourced from small estates. Dining here is a flexible affair, as you can try as many of the superb dishes as your appetite will allow. Choose from a dazzling array of dishes including vibrant salads, cold meats, deli-style dishes, rotisserie chicken, fresh fish and seafood. Make sure to try the restaurant’s signature tender pulled pork, and follow with one of the delectable desserts.
This is a great place to visit with the family, as kids will love the Ducklings Dinner – they can even work with the chefs to create their own pizzas and burgers. Indeed, diners of any age can appreciate this unique, unhurried dining experience, not to mention those stunning views of the river.
