Eton Dining Room Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Eton Dining Room is situated in The Leander Club, a private Members’ Club that was founded in 1818, and which is regarded as the world’s premier rowing club. The Leander Club boasts an unsurpassed record in rowing achievements, it is home to heroes such as Sir Steve Redgrave CBE and Sir Matthew Pinsent CBE. The Leander Club is situated past the Finish Post of the Regatta just before Henley Bridge, on the same Berkshire side as the Stewards’ Enclosure.  The Eton Dining Room has a small capacity of 30 guests.

Location

The Eton Dining Room is situated on the top (second) floor of the Leander Clubhouse. From its windows it has elevated panoramic views of the river and landing stations for the boats, but please note that its location is past the Finish Line, so racing cannot be viewed.

Facility/Décor

The Eton Dining Room is a smart air-conditioned room, which can be set with round dining tables. It has standard viewing windows, not floor-to-ceiling, so views are restricted to those sitting close to them.

Private Tables

Private tables are available for bookings of 10 guests, smaller bookings cannot be made. The room is ideal for companies requiring exclusivity for 30 guests.

Admission

An admission badge to the Leander Club is included, as well as an exclusive badge to allow you to watch the races. The facility does not include admission into the Stewards’ Enclosure, which is located a little downstream on the same (Berkshire) side of the river.

Catering

Catering is a key element of your day at Henley. You will be given refreshments on arrival followed by a four-course luncheon. Traditional Afternoon Tea is served later in the day.

Dress Code

The Stewards’ Enclosure requires gentlemen to wear lounge suits, or jackets/blazers with flannels and a tie or cravat, ladies are required to wear dresses or skirts with a hemline below the knee. Outside of the enclosure, the atmosphere is less formal though most dress up, wearing club blazers and other rowing apparel.

Getting There

Please allow extra time to enter car parks near the Regatta due to security measures and the one-way system in place during the Regatta which is indicated by signs. The main taxi drop point during the Regatta is on the main road, just a short walk from the enclosures.
