“Superb traditional pub b&b with excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2010

We stayed here for one night after a surprise 30th wedding anniversary. The location is great - it's in a quiet road, right in the centre close to all the attractions. The rooms are lovely - very comfy mattresses and spotlessly clean. The rooms are surprisingly big too with a large en-suite and sofa - all in all very comfortable. We had a lovely big breakfast in the morning (so good we came back for lunch). Lovely couple who own it - local Henley residents doing their best to keep an beautiful old pub alive - and they couldn't have been more helpful. All in all, great value and would definately stay there again.

There is not much I can add to previous reviews, they say it all really - a lovely little pub with great clean, tidy and quiet rooms, in a very central position a minute's walk from Henley town centre, very friendly and accommodating hosts, welcoming locals in the pub downstairs, good parking outside, very generous and tasty breakfasts - and all that at a bargain price. I can't recommend the Row Barge highly enough, just go and stay there!

My wife and I spent the night of our silver wedding celebrations there on the 5th of September. Everywhere else was full and it was sheer luck that we found room at the Row Barge:- It was idyllic. When we woke up in the morning it really felt that we had just got married again such was the setting.We will be back Jock Wishart, London

My Wife and I had the good fortune to stumble accross The Row Barge Inn when looking for a place to stay last weekend.

The accommodation was excellent, the welcome from the owner was warm and sincere and the overall experience was superb.

Whether you are looking for a weekend base from which to explore the beautiful Oxfordshire town of Henley-On-Thames or somewhere a little bit different to stay over for business I would thoroughly recommend this charming pub/restaurant.

I've been fortunate to travel all over the world and have stayed in some of the smartest. The Row Barge, under its new ownership/landlords ,is a 5 star place of its kind - great service, very clean, fantastic, genuinely home-made/cooked food (the Sunday lunch roast is to die for!) and the accommodation better than many so-called 'lodges' and 'inns'. The new people have great plans for the place and, already, having only been there a couple of months, have made their mark. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely furnished and the welcome you get on arrival, and during your stay, is terrific-nothing is too much trouble. If you like a good, well cooked full English breakfast (or something much simpler) then you can't find a better place!

We wanted to stay just outside of London so we chose The Row Barge in Henley-on-Thames.
What can I say.
Great Rooms- very clean, modern and comfortable
The hosts were fantastic- nothing was too much trouble.
Evening meal- fantastic and great value for money
Breakfast- just what was needed after a night socialising (sensibly) with the hosts and their regulars.
All in all 10/10- we will be back.

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.
