Hotel du Vin Henley-on-Thames


1 rosettes

One of the unique selling points of the HdV chain is the interesting buildings in which the various hotels have taken root. In Henley, the setting is the Georgian headquarters of the Brakspear brewery, making a perhaps counter-intuitive context for an operation consecrated to wine, but hard to argue with when you survey the wondrous beamed interiors. The Bistro here is particularly atmospheric, with claret-coloured pillars and recreations of eye-catching paintings beneath the brick arches. Efficient renditions of French bistro food are the drill, with one or two modern English touches creeping discreetly in. Smoked salmon dressed with egg, capers and gherkins, or mushrooms sautéed in butter and garlic on toasted brioche, are pleasantly informal ways to start. Then it might be bouillabaisse of red mullet, monkfish, sea bass and prawns, minted rack of lamb, or a veggie special such as gnocchi, tomato and butter bean ragoût. Dry-aged steaks emerge sizzling from the grill, perhaps with a side of petits pois à la française, and desserts maintain the tone with tarte Tatin, or crêpes suzette flamed in Grand Marnier.
