“Fab food, excellent hosts, lovely comfortable and spotless rooms.”
Reviewed 1 September 2009

We stayed here (last minute) for 3 nights in August. The owners have only recently taken over and couldn't do enough for us, checking that we were happy. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and the beds are really comfortable. The rooms are also modern but retaining a period feel and were absolutely spotless. Despite having 2 teenage children and another younger, the owners always made the kids feel just as at home and were excellent at recommending things to do, even going to the trouble of helping us hire a launch and prepearing a picnic for us to take on a Thames trip...fantastic! The food was home-cooked and tasty and exceptional value and we were lucky enough to have suberb weather and could enjoy the lovely beer garden. We will certainly go again soon - highly recommended.

We stayed at the row barge in august, and booked it last minute as we were attending a festival. I was a bit nervous as i couldnt find any reviews, and it was the only place left with rooms!! I neednt have worried, this place is lovely!! The owners only took over it a couple of months ago, and the rooms had only been finshed the weekend before so were brand new!!! We have a super king and it was really big, and the bed was massive, and there was a leather sofa in there too. It was also one of those memory foam ones, it was the best nights sleep we had!! The ensuite was also lovely!! The room, had loads of character with beams running throughout.

Breakfast the next day was great, and the owners were so freindly. We are going back to the festival next year and we'll be booking in early for this place, as once people find out about this, i dont think we'll be able to leave the booking so late!!

The Row Barge Inn is a lovely old listed building with newly re-furbished rooms - all en-suite and my room was a very good size. The owners of the pub are very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble - I was made to feel very 'at home'. I had supper and breakfast and the food was excellent - have to try one of the wonderful homemade puddings! I am already planning my next trip. Highly recommended.

Spent a one night stay while on business in Henley. A quaint 16th century pub offering a great, friendly atmosphere and super food. My room was newly refurbished with all mod cons but retained 16th century character with beams and nooks. The full English Breakfast was one of the best I have had! Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the pub and B&B rooms. All in all - first class experience for less than a premier inn!
