About The French Horn
A riverside inn has stood on this incomparable site for 150 years, alongside the bustling bridges of Sonning. Today, The French Horn still overlooks a picturesque curve of the River Thames, shaded by weeping willows, and graced by swans and moorhens. Softly floodlit at night, the gardens offer a romantic riverside setting for summer dining, and pretty views on a chilly winter's night.
The French Horn has charming bedrooms, including converted riverside cottages, and is most famous as a "Restaurant with Rooms", with one of the finest wine cellars to be found in England. A particular specialty of the house is the spit-roasted local duck, which turns in front of the open fire in the bar.
A pretty private dining room adjoins the main restaurant, which in turn opens on to the sweeping lawns down to the river - an ideal setting for an intimate dinner, or a perfect Sunday lunch.
Situated a stone's throw from Henley-on-Thames, The French Horn is also ideally located for racing at Ascot, Sandown, Windsor and Newbury. Walks and golf courses abound nearby.
