A brewery for 300 years, we've re-incarnated this cluster of historic listed buildings to create one of the most striking hotels in Henley-on-Thames. Enhancing its charming, original period detail... exposed beams and brickwork... while adding our own contemporary sparkle. Take a leisurely lunch al fresco in the central courtyard or sample some hearty, seasonal dishes in our trademark bistro. Enjoy a glass of the finest fizz in the light and airy Champagne bar or your favourite tipple at the pewter topped bar, with over 600 wines to sample in the wine cellar. Visit our cosy cigar Bothy or relax on our comfy sofas for a nightcap under low beams in the Snug. You can even celebrate a private party, family celebration or wedding in a unique function room at Hotel du Vin Henley. Then escape to the sanctuary of one of our 43 beautifully furnished rooms to find a custom-made bed, hand-sprung mattress, soft Egyptian cotton bed linen, fluffy towels and robes, monsoon shower or roll top bath. Hotel du Vin Henley - come mess about on the river.
