Members’ Marquee Hospitality Critic Review

Introduction

The Members’ Marquee is situated in grounds of 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. 

Location

The Members’ Marquee is located in the grounds of the Clubhouse, it provides a less formal dining experience than the Eton & Members’ Balcony Rooms, which are situated inside the Clubhouse. The marquee is adjacent to the crew boating area and River Terrace and provides a lively atmosphere. You will certainly enjoy the hustle and bustle of the river at the end of the races as the boats return to land.

Facility/Décor

The marquee is nicely appointed and accommodates round dining tables. It is open at one side to create an alfresco environment and white picket fencing divides areas within the marquee which is attractive. There is also outdoor garden furniture around the frontage.

Private Tables

Private tables are available for bookings of 10 guests, smaller bookings cannot be made.

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 three-course luncheon, which usually includes the choice of a hot dish or a lobster salad. 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.
