Great value for Henley,good service too.

We arrived at a very busy lunchtime but staff were very efficient and we quickly found a table. Wide choice of food and beer which was served with a smile. We even managed to get extra gravy which delighted my wife.Recommended.

Food was good as was the selection of beers. Alex behind the bar was an asset to the company, really friendly and was... More

We were VERY lucky to get a table as it was heaving, and there were 9 of us. Food arrived promptly. Shame 2 fish dishes were both overcooked and dry. Everyone elses meals were fine. What makes a difference is the staff. All kind and courteous and working their socks off.

Good food at super prices. Comfortable dining room and lovely open terrace at the back. I have eaten there many times but on this occasion they outdid themselves. Eggs Benedict perfect inline with many I have had in 5* Hotels. Family friendly and no hurrying you out after your meal. Relaxed and welcoming but not intrusive.

I have visited the Catherine Wheel twice (during May and September). The pub is very big and a lot of tables to choose from, on entering the building I sat in the small bar on the left on the first occasion and then in the bigger bit on the second time. The larger area is nicer in my opinion and... More
