A small brewery tucked away in a brick built shed just off the public car park in the centre of Henley. It was a lovely sunny day when we visited and there was a beer tasting / talk in progress so the patio area was packed. We made our way inside where the friendly barman, who was rushed off his feet and short of glasses, was able to serve us between filling jugs for the people outside. The main room, which is also a music venue, is simple but cosy - bare beams, sackcloth walls, a hardboard floor and a few cycle-themed decorations. There are seven taps and two or three bottles. A nice place with a relaxed feel; well worth a visit.

Lorna & I visited here to pick up some of the rather tasty Lovibonds Sour Grapes. The tap room is a small shed-like construction with a pleasant patio area out the front. Has a very nice laid-back vibe about it. They had 6 of their own beers on tap and 1 guest (from Kernel during our visit). The have the full range of bottles for take-away and also allow growler fills. Friendly service from the brewer himself. Sat there drinking lagerboy and sour grapes in the sun - whatís not to like? A top-quality tap room/brewery shop.

OVER PRICED 6.50 for 2 halved of their own beer, which us a real shame as the big wooden floored shed looked great felt comfy and had nice atmosphere

Visited on Sunday 5th May 2013 around 4pm.
One room tap with a pleasant courtyard with 4 or 5 wooden benches.
Beers are solely from Lovibonds with 7 taps behind the bar. 4 were their standard range - gold, amber, dark and 69 the other 3 were more limited beers - Lager Boy, Dirty 69 and Sour Grapes (young).
Service was fine.
There were only 4 other drinkers on my arrival but the place soon filled up prior to closing time with around 20 or so punters some taking bottles and growlers home.
Most beers were also available to take home bottle.
Vibe was good, got chatting to a few regulars.
A little over priced bearing in mind itís their own beer at their own tap - £2.30 for a half of their regular offerings, whilst itís what youíd expect in Clondon I thought it a little OTT for their own venue.
None the less a good little tap and one Iíd happily go back to next time Iím in Henley.

A very pleasant spot to sit in the sun in the late afternoon and sample some excellent beers. The choice is limited to the Lovibonds range - but thatís pretty good. Also, thereís live music some evenings if thatís your thing. Make sure you check the opening hours before visiting though.

I tend to visit here once a month usually on a Friday after work. The bar is situated in a sort of old barn type building at the end of a small drive that connects to a pay & display car park in central Henley. The beer range is just Lovibonds but they are all very decent in particular I am very fond of the 69 IPA. More often than not I have also seen the Dark Reserve on tap when Iíve visited, if not on tap all of the range are usually available in bottle along with mini kegs and other brewery related items. I rarely stop for more than a half so never really sat down and it has also not long opened when I arrive so often quite, but its a pleasant place and staff v.friendly.
