Located between Marlow and Henley, this stunning “Quintessentially British” country house hotel sits high on a plateau above the River Thames in 65 acres of landscaped gardens and is just 30 minutes from London. Constructed in locally quarried rock chalk and completed in 1901, this historic Mansion was built in the Italian Renaissance style as probably one of the last great family homes of the period. The House was subsequently requisitioned by the war office to become the Centre for Allied Photographic Intelligence of RAF Medmenham during the Second World War, before opening in its current guise as a luxury hotel in 1991. 2016 saw the hotel celebrate its 25th Anniversary.

Executive Chef Billy Reid and Head Sommelier Piotr Marszalek have produced a classical menu with wine pairings and promises to be an outstanding evening. Billy turns simple produce into well executed modern British food whilst the restaurant at Danesfield House is a frequent recipient of awards for its smart and approachable wine list.
