The restaurant was busy with lots of people. I placed my order via the Wetherspoon App and the drink and food appeared. Good quality and a good pint. Desert was also great with an everlasting coffee cup.

Would I go back again. Yes.

No atmosphere. A gigantic pub with nothing going on and barely anyone in it. Service from behind the bar from the young part time teacher with the nose ring... just hideous! Up there with the worst service behind a bar I have ever had. Ability to ruin the end of an evening with an abrupt and careless manor. From a fellow teacher, stick to teaching, your customer service skills are yet to be desired!

As I was doing a charity walk that I was expecting to finish in Henley during the night, I looked for a reasonable option for a bed for a few hours. The Catherine Wheel seemed to be a good location in the centre of town and the price was OK.

As I didn't arrive until very late (about 4am), I obviously can't comment on the bar/restaurant in the evening, but it was fine for breakfast. Being a Wetherspoons pub, breakfast was cheap, but as usual with this chain, I thought it was pretty good for the price. You just need to keep your expectations in check.

As for the room, it was comfortable and clean. It was a little on the small side, which could be a problem for a longer stay, but for a night or two it was fine.

The staff were very welcoming, even in the middle of the night.

Overall, a fairly good budget hotel. The location was ideal if you want to be in town, with a nice easy walk to the station.

We called in because they were offering Doom Bar for £1.99 a pint and then decided to eat. As it was Steak Tuesday and they were offering a mixed grill and a pint of beer for £9.70 we couldn't not take them up on their offer! The mixed grill was fairly substantial and the chips were delicious, really lovely a crisp and fluffy inside. My other half had a Hummus and roasted veg wrap which also came with chips and a glass of wine for £6.95 and was pronounced tasty and amazing value for money. It's fairly typical pub fayre at great prices and well presented. We'd definitely visit again.

This is part of the Wetherspoon's chain, so the menu is quite varied and affordable, plus some meal deals include a drink. Can't go wrong really! The venue is quite traditional in style and decor, and the place is huge... so there's plenty of space to take a table, or even find a quiet sofa in a corner. I visited on a Saturday lunch time, the service was prompt and the food was hot and cooked as expected. Last time I visited was about 25 years ago, so I think I'll be back again after another shopping trip soon!
