Monday to Saturday: 11am - 11pm

The Little Angel is the largest, most famous pub in Henley on Thames. Always busy, it attracts locals, businesses, domestic and overseas visitors and hosts the many thousands a year that flock to the town for its historic status, annual events and the picturesque river setting. The decor is unique, beautifully designed and delivers a spacious, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The staff here are well regarded as being friendly, efficient and knowledgeable and the food is most definitely a huge draw. Likewise, they have a lovely large, traditional bar, so this is a great pub but also a great place to eat. Well kept ales, good wine list and an all round professionally run outfit, it should definitely be on any itinerary for a trip to Henley on Thames. They can host 2 people as well as they can over 100, as the spaces are large without being crowded and the large, patio garden is perfect for those summer months. You could do worse than have lunch outside on a sunny day, watching Henley play cricket over the white picket fence, while enojoying a jug of Pimms, chilled bottle of Rose, or jug of well kept or larger. People who know The Little Angel are loyal to it.....give it a whirl.
Bottom of Remenham Hill and found off the M4 Junction 8/9 or M40 junction 4. At the bottom of the A4130 and just 5 minutes walk from Henley on Thames Train Station - a short walk over the bridge
This is a fantastic pub. It's well located by the cricket club and river, with a large car park (gold dust in Henley) and a funky, welcoming atmosphere. The staff are friendly and really helpful in accommodating specific dietary requirements. The menu too, is varied with lots of seasonal (and local) specials and we always struggle to decide as it all sounds so appealing and unlike many places the food doesn't disappoint either. It's a pub for summer - great terrace and winter - roaring fires and comfy sofas, boys - sports shown and girls - lovely wine list (and doggies are welcome too!) what's not to like?!

This pub has been in the same ownership for over 10 years now. It is well run, well cared for and very well loved by the 1000's that flock through its famous doors every year. Always busy, fantastic staff, good food and innovative decor, this is one of the busiest and most consistent places in the area and not to be missed. Winter or summer still busy. Locals love it, surrounding villages and towns patronise it and it has a healthy tourism draw. All in all, a great place and well worth walking over beautiful Henley Bridge for. It also has the holy grail in the town of a large car park!

A short walk over Henley bridge takes you to the Little Angel. A funky-looking interior in an old building, with soft-lighting, comfy sofas and trendy dining. It's trying really hard to be a modern British gastropub - the menu alone looks great! Prices of the drinks reflect these aspirations, and staff waft about in chic black. To execute this type of vision though, your kitchen needs to be cashing the cheques that front of house is writing and, in the case of the Little Angel, that simply isn't happening. The food, when it appears, is something that you could probably turn out yourself if your spent a couple of hours with a Jamie Oliver cookbook. The beer too, on occasion, has been pretty dire. It's a nice place to sit outside in the summer - it's right next to the cricket pitch, so you can sup a few pints and watch the match. Other than that, I can't think of a good reason to make that walk over the bridge.
