Beautiful rustic wedding venue in Henley-on-Thames
As soon as we stepped into the beautiful and well maintained, colourful grounds at The Crown Inn, we knew it was ‘The One’. After searching for a rustic, intimate venue for our wedding we stumbled upon The Crown Inn just outside our hometown of Henley-on-Thames and instantly fell in love. With a cosy and traditional country pub, the most stunning thatched barn and the beautiful rolling hills that surround it, The Crown Inn really is a gem - the best wedding venue in Henley-on-Thames! The whole venue is beautifully kept, a British pub at its best!
The barn venue itself really does have the ‘wow’ factor, with its thatched roof, exposed beams and the most gorgeous hanging hops inside. The venue itself was so stunning, that it really didn’t need much decorating. It was absolutely perfect as it was!
It was the ideal venue for us as it was just the right size for our intimate wedding party in the day, as well as being able to accommodate more guests in the evening. We loved how we could have the ceremony and reception all in one place, an ideal relaxed setting for us and no need for guests to travel to and from separate venues!
As part of the wedding package, not only did you get the exclusive use of the pub and barn, but we were also able to stay overnight at the lovely on site cottage, which was beautifully presented. This was an amazing bonus, as it was somewhere where the bridesmaids and I could get ready and it became a brilliant place for nap time for the little ones who got tired towards the end of the day!
Without doubt, the venue itself is stunning but what makes it all the more special is the amazing team behind it! The staff at The Crown Inn were absolutely fantastic, who went above and beyond to make the day perfect. In the run up to the day, Lucas and Chloe were incredibly helpful and accommodating and made the whole process very easy. They helped us every step of way, were amazingly supportive and incredibly professional. Organising a wedding can be a daunting task, but with the team at The Crown Inn we couldn’t have asked for more!
On the day, the staff did the most amazing job of coordinating with all of the other wedding professionals, organising the furniture and making sure that everything went smoothly. To be honest for us the day went by in a total blur, but thanks to the incredible team, who were amazingly supportive (and flexible when some of our timings went out the window) they made the day go off without a hitch.
For the food, we opted for a hearty wedding breakfast which included slow cooked beef brisket with seasonal vegetables and sticky toffee pudding (always a crowd pleaser!). The food itself was exceptional and we received so many complements with just how delicious it was. Top marks to the kitchen!
Throughout the entire day the staff’s service was second to none, the team went above and beyond for our guests and we couldn’t have been more thankful! We will be forever grateful to Lucas, Chloe and the team for helping to create such a magical wedding day for us! Thank you so much for the wonderful memories! Fondly, Molly & MarkSent on 29/08/2020

Perfect for our rustic wedding
Married here end of November and it was amazing. Such a gorgeous, cosy barn/ pub perfect for a woodland/ rustic themed wedding. Adjoining pub was handy for guests to get drinks and relax, whilst the barn was perfect for the ceremony, dinner and evening disco.Sent on 18/12/2019
Lucas was very handy and informative, and was helpful in ensuring everything was ok before the wedding day. He and the team worked non stop to have everything run smoothly on the day itself and ensure me and my partner enjoyed ourselves without worry.
Would highly recommend for a rustic wedding for around 60-80 guests!
As for the food, it was delicious. The 3-course wedding breakfast was superb and everyone commented on how tasty the food was (a starter corn beef hash, brisket of beef for mains and a brownie chocolate pudding). There were also bacon baps and chips in the evening which went down well. Me and my wife got a fry up the next morning which was very hearty and plentiful, and tasted perfect.
The accommodation was cosy too and was handy having somewhere right next door to crash after a night of dancing and drinking.
Just to add also, me, my wife and my family visited here a few months before the wedding just for dinner one night. Again, the food, personnel and service was sublime and the pub was quaint and cosy, so it’s not just wedding goggles for my review.

Best day of our lives!
The Crown Inn barn and pub is abosolutely amazing! Lucas and his staff were very attentive and made sure our day was very special. All our guests thought the food was delicious and the venue was stunningly beautiful. We had private use of the cottage so I could get ready in the morning with all my bridesmaids and had private use of the barn and pub all day! We got to stay in the cottage overnight which was lovely. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone! Thank you for making our wedding day our best day ever!Sent on 19/10/2019
