The pub is found in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, RG9 1SB.

A small, mid-terrace pub, established by the 1860s and located off the town centre in a residential area – the Henley pub most tourists don’t find, but a serial CAMRA award winner. A cosy front bar, with a family room behind and a nice garden at the rear. The current licensees have been here since 1993. CAMRA South Oxfordshire Branch Pub of the Year for 2006, 2008, 2010.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 8 different beers and tried 4 of them.
