Thank You!

We had a great time. Especially the kids, with their favourite items in the menu. I was initially worried about my wife, as she is a vegetarian, but the manager got a special meal out from no where and it was absolutely amazing. So had a great time and enjoyed the service. Will come back again..

A glass of wine in the sunshine and then inside for dinner, we both opted for fish which was excellent, we consider ourselves very fortunate to have such a lovely local Pub which produces such a high standard of food. Thanks again to Kevin, his creative young Chef and all of the team.

Visited in May for an impromptu Saturday lunch. We were met and seated by the manager who was extremely friendly and keen to help , at this stage we were simply going to have a lite bite. Nothing speared too much trouble and it was no problem that we only wanted a starter whilst being seated in the very pleasant... More

Very good food quality. Friendly service. My wife had asparagus for starter - a bit skimped on quantity. Roast beef with all the trimmings was excellent for both of us. Desserts were good and tasty. A bit pricey for us, but then again, we are from Yorkshire where the price levels are somewhat lower than in Henley!

Sunday lunch for a birthday celebration; we had booked. The chicken liver parfait (starter) was delicious, melting in the mouth. Lovely dish of fresh asparagus. The roasts were just right with all the trimmings. And very good puddings...! Staff polite and efficient. A good place that deserves its place in the Good Pub guide.

I believe this pub is now owned by Enterprise INNS. A group of 8 of us decided to have lunch here and walk along the Thames river bank afterwards to where our sons went to school 20 years ago. We lived in the village then. The pub has been extensively refurbished and is a great improvement on the previous interior.... More

Many thanks for your kind review. The building may be owned by Enterprise Inns but it has been leased by the Hannah family for the last 12 years and it is they who have carried out the refurbishments. Just thought we let you and everyone now know. If you had told the staff about your burger, we would have happily... More
