Crockers Henley – a restaurant with rooms concept – is set to launch later this year in one of the UK’s most picturesque riverside settings, Henley-on-Thames. 

The new property will build upon the success of relaxed fine-dining restaurant Crockers Tring, which was launched by former chef Luke Garnsworthy in 2018, who previously worked as chef de partie at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. 

With a strong F&B focus, it will feature a grill restaurant and bar and two 16-seat chef’s tables – The Thames Table and Gardener Table – each presenting its own relaxed fine-dining concept, which will be overseen by Head Chefs Dean Westcar and Iain Dixon respectively.  

The Thames Table will serve a seasonal, modern-British tasting menu, whilst The Gardener will feature a Pan-Asian tasting experience. Both will offer a seven-course lunch and 12-course dinner, incorporating the very best produce matched with each chef’s individual talents. 

Meanwhile, The Grill will provide a more relaxed drinking and dining experience. Led by Head Chef Tom Westerland it will offer a wide variety of steaks, fish and shellfish roasted over a custom-built charcoal grill. 

Overseeing the drinks selection, Head Mixologist Ryan Osnowski will serve a selection of classic and contemporary cocktails, while Head of Wine, Gemma Albridge will present guests with an eclectic and evolving selection of wines from across the globe. 

“We’re incredibly excited about our new home in Henley-on-Thames. After working on this project for more than a year with Ian Churchill (Operations Director), that excitement is reaching fever-pitch as we near our launch date,” says Luke Garnsworthy, Chief Executive of Crockers.

“We couldn’t wish for a more beautiful location in such a wonderful town. The senior team we have put in place is truly a dream come true, and I can’t wait to open our doors to the people of Henley – they’re in for a treat.”

The Grade-II listed building has been transformed by Ali Hearn Interiors and will comprise seven beautifully appointed rooms reflecting the Georgian heritage of the building.
