Decent food but really slow service

Food was decent enough, about what you would expect from a Weatherspoons. Good portions and a good price but let down by the ridiculously slow service. Once your order is taken though the food does arrive quickly.

Went for breakfast but will definitely never return. The tables were not cleared, only one person on the bar and as you have to order your food and drink the wait was long and the bar maid was definitely not in a rush. The first two breakfast were served one the bacon and bean were stone cold, we then had... More

A well priced, delicious meal during our day (drive) visit to Henley on Thames. Fits perfectly in the quaint village close to London.

There have always been queues to get served, Wetherspoons you get what you pay for. In the past food has been excellent for the money. On this visit food was not as good or even warm. The staff may have realised as there was not the usual check that everything was OK. Even the coffee was poor. Hopefully this is... More

After a 7 mile walk we were keen to be fed quickly and the Catherine Wheel certainly delivered. At 1500 on a Sunday afternoon it was busy with lots of Sunday roast diners so were told to expect a 20 min delay for food. However, our Mexican veg burger and chicken wrap were at our table on hot plates within... More

Have always had excellent value for money and service from Wetherspoons in the past so chose to go to the Catherine Wheel in Henley on Thames with friends prior to a concert to kick off the Christmas spirit. However there were only two people behind the bar and upwards of 50 waiting to be served. My meal arrived cold, the... More

The curry evening was excellent. The wife and I walked round the town and the only place with any life on Thursday was the Catherine Wheel. Saw the promo £7:25 a curry and a pint (drink) It was more than a curry - naan and popadums too. Curry tasted good if not excellent. Didn't skimp on portions. Only criticism was... More

Called in for tea due to working in the area, I previously had tried the delicious chicken Mexican burger so I thought I would give the beef Mexican burger a go, it's advertised as being served with cheese, guacamole, salsa and jalapeño, however on arrival a great looking burger arrived with fresh looking salad however there was no evidence of...

Had a lovely Saturday lunch here. Huge place. Food comes so fast. Great value. Portions not massive but worth the money and filled all of us. Good atmosphere.

Great Place for fair priced grub and good wine. We go here every year on our Henley Rewind Festival.
