Magna Carta tea-room at Runnymede
The tea-room at Runnymede serves a range of hot and cold drinks, light meals, snacks and cakes. The menu changes seasonally, with lighter meals and ice creams available in summer, and warming soups and jacket potatoes for those cool winter days. You’ll also find freshly made sandwiches available year-round.
It wouldn’t be a visit to the National Trust without sampling a slice of cake. The Magna Carta tea-room serves traditional cakes and traybakes all year round, from Victoria sponges and fruit scones to fruit flapjacks and chocolate brownies.
Indoor and outdoor seating
There’s plenty of seating inside the tea-room, as well as outdoor picnic benches enjoying views over the meadows.
Remember your reusable cup
Every time you bring a reusable cup to the tea-room, we’ll give you 25p off your hot drink as a thank-you for helping the environment by reducing the number of disposable cups used.
This promotion replaces the hot drinks loyalty card scheme, which closed in February 2021.
Accessibility for all
The National Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the National Trust a grant of £1.6m to transform how you experience Runnymede. As part of this, the tea-room has been recently refurbished to ensure full wheelchair accessibility.
There’s also free Wi-Fi available so you can stay connected while you enjoy a cuppa both indoors and outdoors.
Most of the food and drink served is prepared on site in our kitchen, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free.
If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served, please ask the staff, who will be happy to help.
Always check when you visit
Visited before? We sometimes change our recipes to improve quality and flavour, including the ingredients. When you visit, please speak to one of our team to check the current allergen information for your favourite dish.
Every cuppa or tasty treat you buy helps us to continue looking after places for everyone to enjoy.
