On 1 August, Crockers Henley will open its doors in one of the UK’s most sought after riverside locations: Henley-on-Thames.
With a unique offering comprising two 16-seat Chef’s Tables (The Thames Table and The Gardiner Table), the Bar & Grill and elegant overnight accommodation.
Crockers Henley builds on the success of its sibling, Crockers Tring, which launched in Spring 2018. Both projects are the brainchild of former chef, CEO Luke Garnsworthy.
Chief Executive, Luke Garnsworthy said, “I am incredibly excited to be opening Crockers Henley after what has felt like the longest period of uncertainty in our industry.
“The team we have in place istruly exceptional and have shown remarkable resilience and determination over the past few months. Henley is in for a treat when we can open our doors on 1st August, and I can’t wait to see the response.”
Each Chef’s Table will present its own experience-led and relaxed fine-dining offering. The Thames Table overseen by Head Chef Dean Westcar, will serve a seasonal, modern British tasting menu, whilst The Gardiner Table, led by Head Chef Iain Dixon, will see a Pan-Asian tasting experience take centre-stage.
Both will present a 7-course lunch (£45) and 12-course dinner (from £90), incorporating the very best produce matched with each chef’s individual talents.
Diners will be seated at a bespoke table which overlooks the respective dedicated Chef’s Table kitchen, making for an unmatched interactive experience. The Grill will provide a more relaxed drinking and dining destination and will offer all day dining as well as brunch at the weekends.
Led by Head Chef Tom Westerland, The Grill will offer an unrivalled range of steaks, fish and shellfish roasted over a custom-built charcoal grill, while the bar, overseen by Head Mixologist Ryan Osnowski, will serve both a classic and more contemporary range of cocktails, with a selection of 10 also available to take-home in ready batched bottles.
Head of Wine, Gemma Aldridge will be working with several importers and wineries to offer guests an eclectic and ever-changing selection of wines from around the globe, including a range of paired wine options when at the Chef’s Tables.
The Quarters will offer high quality accommodation based around a small estate of seven double bedrooms, each reflecting the Georgian heritage of the building, complemented by elegant furnishings.
The rooms are equipped with super king beds, roll-top baths and statement lighting pieces, providing the ultimate in comfort and exuding a sense of understated luxury.
Guests staying overnight will be treated to a three-course breakfast the following morning served in the exclusive surroundings of one of the Chef’s Tables. The transformation of the Grade II listed building situated on Henley’s bustling Market Place is the work of Ali Hearn Interiors.
The renovations have been considered – exposed brick and woodwork has been restored and accented with contemporary fixtures and fittings. One-night stay includes dinner at one of the two Chefs Tables, three-course breakfast, two glasses of English sparkling wine on arrival. Priced from £370 for two
