As with most Wetherspoons, the Catherine Wheel offers no surprises. The food is nice, but not amazing in any way, and the same can be said for the service. We go most times when we visit Henley, but because its cheap, not because its a brilliant place to go. If you want low cost food that is better... read more

Just popped in here for a quick drink. It was a bit busy but we were served promptly and the service was friendly. Never eaten in here but hope to next time we pop in.

Comfortable enough, sat on a sofa and had the Friday fish'n'chips, and a pint or two. I wish they'd tell you what fish it was. Actually it's pretty good to have somewhere in Henley to eat simply and cheaply, and for the money it was fine. Really.

The price is about the only thing I could say was going for this place. The drinks are OK, although the white wine a freind had was not cold enough, the service was mediocre at best and the food seemed bland

I went here with my son for a meal out and that is what we had. The food was good and came out remarkably quickly. However we were overcharged because each item was charged separately and not as part of a combo deal. When this was pointed out later on, we received an apology, a refund and a free drink.... More

This pub is in the Heart of Henley. Been there many times since it became a Wetherspoons pub. The food is always good and the beer as well. The dining area is the way a pub should be, lots of room and nice décor. Good place when visiting the town for a coffee to a full meal.

At first glance the pub is easy to walk past because of its shabby exterior! After doing Tough Mudder we were walking in Henley and started talking to fellow participants who recommended it, and we were not disappointed. Though it does need a refurbishment we found the staff and the food to be very good with a good choice of... More

If you eat here you want your head examining. I sware they only have a microwave in the "kitchen" but even that beats the incredible slow service behind the bar. I don't think I have been in there and there has been staff there waiting to serve. I can here them in the kitchen talking or the manager giving them... More
