It has been taken over by new landlords and wasn’t serving meals. Found this disappointing after walking from one end of town to the other to find it.

I can't remember exactly. I think it was something like £8.95 or £9.95. It was definitely value for money.

We are a traditional English Pub in Henley-in-Arden which serves good value for money meals in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Our aim is to maintain a traditional pub atmosphere supplemented by home cooked traditional pub food together with a selection of daily specials at reasonable prices. We also offer a good selection of beers and cask ales and wines. On a nice day sit outside on our patio area or in our riverside beer garden. We have a separate bar area which can be used for functions such as birthday parties, christenings, retirement parties, meetings or any other event for approx. 30 - 40 People. There is no extra charge for the room if food is ordered from one of our buffet menus. So next time you are passing through Henley in Arden on the way to Stratford-upon-Avon pop in and say hello. We are the first pub on the left as you come from Birmingham and the M40/M42 motorway and the last pub on the right if coming from Stratford upon Avon or Warwick.
