Restaurant with rooms Crockers Henley has now opened its doors in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
Housed in a Grade II listed building in Henley’s Market Place, Crockers has a strong focus on “great food and immersive experiences in a relaxed and unpretentious environment”.
The converted townhouse holds seven boutique bedrooms, two 16-seater Chef’s Tables, a larger robatayaki grill restaurant and a brand-new bar.
Headed up by Michelin-starred ex-Lucknam Park chef, Dean Westcar, The Thames Table serves 16 diners a 9-course tasting menu.
Meanwhile, at the Gardiner’s Table, head chef Iain Dixon brings Henley 10 and 7-course tasting menus of Southeast Asian dishes, matched with wines, sake and shōchu – inspired by his travels to Japan.
A statement by the Crockers Henley read: “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. Crockers was founded on the dream of changing the way the hospitality industry works.
“Set menus, limited numbers and pre- bookings mean time management is easier, offering staff a better work/life balance. The chef’s table model also brings chefs out of the dark and often windowless kitchens, and into the front row. Interaction and experience is key to delivering the Crockers signature style of dining.”
