My wife and I happened upon this delightful restaurant when travelling back to Henley. The outside is good but the inside exceeds it considerably in terms of design, atmosphere and ambience. Extremely good food and excellent service. We shall certainly be returning.

Always nice to be able to have Sunday dinner instead of Sunday lunch. We have been here often and staff is always friendly and welcoming. This Sunday we got the impression there was a different chef. Portions were larger but taste wise it didn't hit...More
