stayed in nearby Hurley but ate in here three times over the easter bank holiday weekend to cover a breakfast, light lunch and a Sunday roast. All of the meals came in super quick time and were very nice, the Sunday roast in particular was excellent and good value. It's a large pub with a quick... read more

Typical Wetherspoon problem where giving order takes too long because staff wander off to make hot drinks. Early Saturday with a queue of about 15 people waiting patiently in one line. Many others left before ordering. Food was good and arrived quickly. Bacon on bacon butty offer with drink for £2.95 was really good.

We do understand that the biggest issue with our breakfast service is the wait time at the bar. We are currently looking to increase our staffing levels during these busier periods as we move into the summer. Thank you More

Very nice looking pub I ordered a large vegetarian breakfast my partner ordered a meat one. 15 minutes later a freshly cooked hot breakfast was brought to us. Also must add the staff all of them were very friendly and helpful which makes all the difference. Thank you

Was a typical Wetherspoons pub. Quite a good choice of food at a very reasonable price. Did get our order slightly wrong but couldn't have been more apologetic & put it right immediately & offered us free desert & coffee by way of apology.

Unless we just were here on Tyre right day at the right time. Really liked the place, a little over 40 pounds for three with desserts and a drink and a main meal. Well placed in the heart of Henley and within walking distance from car parks (one of the main car parks is free on Sunday). All in all... More

If you've been in one Witherspoon you'll know what to expect regarding the choice of reasonably priced real ales and menu's + specials. My food arrived in a timely fashion and was OK. The only differences between each Witherspoon is the venue and as usual this one did not disappoint.

Four of us ended up having an impromptu lunch at the Catherine Wheel while in Henley. We arrived with no reservation when they were mad busy, but after just 10 minutes we had a great table by the window with plenty of room. We are fussy eaters, make no mistake, but lunch was excellent, as was the service. Ok, perhaps... More

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.

Not written many reviews but had to write and say what a wonderful time i had at this establishment. I was in Henley on Thames for a wedding and just nipped in for a bite to eat. Food was good as was the selection of beers. Alex behind the bar was an asset to the company, really friendly and was... More
