The Row Barge Inn

Stayed 2 nights at the Row Barge whilst in Henley for a PureStretch course. I was lucky enough to get a parking spot outside, as parking in Henley is not easy and even accomodation in Henley itself is hard to find. The Row Barge is within easy walking reach of everything in Henley (shops, station, river, etc) and just around the corner from my course venue. As others have already said, the place has character, winding stairs to negociate and charming (very clean rooms) with comfortable beds and a great power shower. The staff were exceptionally welcoming at all times and took time out to have a chat, which is appreciated when travelling alone. You can order breakfast (whatever you want, as the chef will cook prepare it for you) for a specific time and it was delicious. The whole place has character and even though I did not eat in the restaurant (homework to do), I heard from the locals that the food was always fantastic. It is an Inn/pub and noise is expected, but it was not too bad, just a little merry making and I had checked beforehand to make sure that there were no wedding or birthday celebrations during my stay. I felt safe and cosy and very comfortable. Hope to visit again when visiting next. Thank you everyone at the Row Barge..

Stayed here for one night last minute! The guys there were really helpful, fitting us in. The room was great with a really comfy bed and the breakfast was delicious - enough to fill you up all day! The staff were really knowledgeable about the local area and what is on throughout the year. We will definitely be back to this lovely pub and B&B with the wood burning fire going on cold nights!

Stayed one night at the Row Barge whilst in Henley for a wedding. Our room was up some winding stairs at the top of the building and was very nice. En-suite was spacious and bed was comfy. The barman who welcomed us was very helpful and gave us good advice about where to park. In the morning, the breakfast was an excellent full-English and the staff were exceedingly friendly. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it!

This pub has the best Sunday roast in Henley. Not easy to find but well worth the effort . Just go up past the town hall on the rght hand side with river behind you. Great roasts - pork, beef and chicken with a great choice of vegetables. Need to book as locals claim it as their own. Love the place. Staff friendly and efficient. Try it. You will not be disappointed ! We are Australian and come here every year.

Catered for a large group of adults and children at very short notice. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was excellent - all very obviously top quality ingredients and home made!! No children's menu - but all adults meals could be scaled down - even going so far as to halve their puddings so that the kids could share. We were staying elsewhere so can't comment on the accommodation - but really can not praise the food and service highly enough. Bar very friendly too - felt like more of a locals pub but we were made to feel very welcome (children included). Is located a little bit further off the beaten track than many other pubs but well worth the short walk. Some of our group even booked for the following night as well!!

A beautiful historic local pub. Full of character and spotlessly clean. A warm friendly welcome and a proper show stopper breakfast !!!
Rooms are low beamed with tastefully added en - suite and freshly decorated. All in all an excellent stay.
