Probably the best Sunday lunch in the Borough. I counted six different vegetables , all fresh. The beef was ample, the Yorkshires were huge, and more than enough roast potatoes. Everything was nicely cooked. We had starters which were filling and finished with apple and raspberry crumble and custard.. Again huge and enough for two. My compliments to the team at The Runway. We will definitely book again.

The venue speaks for itself, recently refurbished, bright and airy and spotlessly clean.
The food was fantastic, with lots of choice and freshly cooked.
Staff and service was great and we will definitely be going back.

Had a lovely evening waiters very polite and welcoming. Good advice about allergies. I was a bit disappointed with the black bean chili seems to be a different recipe not smokey like before . Everyone else loved their meals. I would recommend this restaurant.

Took my Nan for lunch who had been to the Runway before - I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Staff were wonderful and so helpful, very passionate about making sure your visit is the best possible.
Compliments to the chef, I had the chicken burger and my Nan had a roast - both hot, plentiful and very tasty.

Food consistently good quality each time we visit. Service excellent, attentive but not overbearing. Good range of choice on menu. My rack of ribs cooked perfectly, fall off the bone. My wife's calves liver was delicious, melt in the mouth. Portions good, and food so nice you won't leave any!

Service was a little slow it was Valentine’s Day and it was understandably busy so it was a little slower than it would normally be when waiting between the fist and second courses. Bat overall it was excellent. Thank the staff please

Service was good but not overly friendly , room was cold and food which was a sunday lunch was served in a bowl and not on a plate , a real pet hate of mine this was so late nineties presentation , beef was not of a great quality but was passable. Would not revisit as I didnt think it was good value for the price I paid

From start to finish the service was fantastic. The food was very tasty. The mushroom soup was out of this world and accompanied by warm bread! Something quite small that a lot of places don't seem to bother with now. The sticky toffee pudding was amazing!! One of the best I've tasted. Delicious! All in all a lovely experience and we will definitely be back.

5 of us went for dinner at The Runway. The waitress that was serving us was so rude.
The table was booked for 8pm, 2 of us ordered starters which took over an hour to come out. The mains where not served until 9.35pm.
We ordered a second drink from the waitress, it didn’t come. Eventually I had to go to the bar to order the drinks.
The place was not that busy. When the food was served it was average. The waitress almost placed the plate of food on one of the girls lap and didn’t apologise. We weren’t asked was everything ok or did we need anything else.
I will never come back here or recommend this place to anyone.

We visited as a family of four on a weekday night, we have two young children. We were seated immediately, Vlad our server was very attentive, service was fantastic throughout. The atmosphere is lovely, we were sat in the conservatory style area at the back, which is lovely light and spacious area, and the kids went out to play in the outdoor area. The starters took time to come but we did order the kids meals to arrive at the same time, this is a place where you can sit and take your time over courses, great for a family/friends get together. However, as we attended on a school night, we could have done with a quicker pace of dining, but the food was fantastic quality and freshness and I appreciate that takes time. We really enjoyed our meal, however the main dish I'd ordered wasn't to my liking so I chose not to eat much of it, Vlad noticed this and offered to make me a different dish, I wasn't too hungry and we were time pressed so I declined, so he kindly took the item off our bill. I cannot emphasise enough how fantastic the service was, I'd definitely like to return when we have more time to sit and really enjoy a meal and have the desserts too! Great pub in our local area, Vlad provides brilliant service. highly recommend.

First time here - but definitely not the last. We came on a Tuesday evening and the restsurent unfortunately was as dead as a do-do. Bar one lone man we were the only people eating, hence it lacked atmosphere and ambience. But, and a huge but, the food was superb. Quite possibly the best cooked scallops and squid I have ever had! The garlic bread with cheese was delicious. The mains were lovely specially the twice cooked chips! All the food was piping hot, the water and wine were ice cold. The service could not be faulted, it was friendly, efficient and obliging. Although the restsurent was empty we felt no pressure whatsoever to hurry or to leave. The music was great, our taste and not too loud. I apprciate you don't want to lay tables that aren't going to be used, but maybe a little pot or flowers on the empty tables - it just kind of lacked 'invitation'. But thank you very much, it was a superb meal.

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and it surpassed our expectations. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful although the service was a bit slow but this could be expected as the meals appeared to be freshly cooked and not just warmed up. The Sunday lunch was a large one,not one where you had a meal that was laid out prettily but left you starving afterwards. It was cooked to perfection, the only problem was that I didn't have room for a pudding . I would recommend this to anyone and will certainly be returning again.

Greeted warmly upon arrival, and seated promptly. Table laid perfectly with fabric napkins (something of a rarity when dining out) and sparkling clean cutlery.
Staff were attentive the whole time. Was asked how we wanted our meat cooked, and when arrived it was cooked to perfection. The meal was seasoned to perfection and no long waiting between courses.
Portion size of each course reflected the cost of the dish. No over the top amount for a piddly amount of food on an oversized plate.
An absolute brilliant ambience backed up with brilliant staff, brilliant food. An absolutely must place to visit for a meal with either family or friends.
Will definitely be recommending The Runway to others.

The food was good value for money - however although I mentioned diary free and a birthday on the booking none were mentioned by the staff - I mentioned the diary for the starter and the chef provided an alternative sauce but then gave tartare with the main. The bookin was for 8pm and no one mentioned that they would be closing early and the last orders at the bar would be 9.20 with an expectation that you would drink them and be out in 10 minutes. Ordered the 2 for 1 cocktails and was expected to knock them back. The staff began to sweep the floor around us making it uncomfortable. This spoilt the end of a family birthday - had a I been aware of this I would have even booked for 7.30 or chose another restaurant for that occasion. I would return but not on a Monday night !!!!
