Description: The Little Angel is all things to all people. It is a historic, perfectly placed pub and eating house at the foot of Remenham Lane, just before you go over Henley bridge into Henley on Thames. With a large car park, a reputation for great service, food and ambience, this pub is the busiest in the area and deservedly is on most itineraries of anyone visiting Henley on Thames. From the outside, it looks a quaint little pub but enter its hallowed doorway and you will find the most unique, beautifully designed space, with space being a key word. They can seat over 100 without a problem and can hold private functions for over 350 standing. Weddings, corporate functions, you name it, they can do it. They have a superb, professional and friendly team that can assist with most requests. Food is seasonal, fresh, cooked to order and with quarterly changing A la Carte and daily delicious specials, this pub is patronised all year round for lunch, dinner, drinks at their large and buzzy bar or when weather shows some joy, in their large, patioed garden that looks onto the quintessential Henley Cricket Club playing grounds. Jugs of Pimms, Pitchers of beer sit comfortably alongside ice buckets full of champagne and provence rose. If you haven't been to Henley or to The Little Angel, it is well worth a visit. The historic River Thames is just 100 yards away. Walk to it, from it or drive, as you wish but do GO!

Went to watch a live band at this pub and was met with shocking service! They had had an all day event here so you would assume they would have plenty of staff working, WRONG. I had to wait 20 minutes for a drink and when I said something QUIETLY to my friend, one of the bar staff proceeded to say “well can’t you see it’s very busy and HE (my friend) has just ordered 2 cocktails which take a while, so just be patient”. With about 10 people waiting for a drink, 2 people were on the bar. Service was not friendly!

This is a lovely place - great location for a walk along the river but the service was so slow. So allow extra time when ordering. Food was standard - nothing exciting to get the taste buds going.
