Restaurant FAQs

What time do we need to be seated?

We advise between 6pm and 6.30pm if you wish to watch the concert on the Floating Stage.

Can we stay at our table during the concert? If so, can we eat during the performance?

Yes. Please ask guests to arrive by 8pm in The Terrace Restaurant. They are welcome to stay at their table throughout the concert but their meal will be finished by approx. 9.30pm.

Can we return to our table for coffee/dessert after the concert?

Yes. Guests can return to their tables after the concert on the main stage for dessert, coffee and drinks.

How do I complete my menu choices?

You need to log on to your Henley Festival account by clicking on to the Henley Festival website: www.henley-festival.co.uk and clicking the pink button on the top right hand side which says ‘book now’.  If you haven’t accessed your account this year then follow the instructions to get a new password.

When you have logged on, please look on the right hand side at ‘my restaurant bookings’.

Click on the ‘View My Selections’ button which takes you to the page where you can ‘edit diner’ and add the name and e-mail address of each guest.  Once you have added their details you can either complete their menu choices and dietary requirements for them or click on the ‘Guest Invite’ box at the bottom of the page.  There is a dropdown menu where you can select ‘yes, please send guest invite by email’.  Then click the ‘Update Selection’ box.

Can I send each of my guests the menu for them to complete?

Yes.  Once you have added their name and e-mail address, click on the ‘Guest Invite’ box at the bottom of the page.  There is a dropdown menu where you can select ‘yes, please send guest invite by email’.  Then click the ‘Update Selection’ box.  They will then be able to complete their choices which will be sent back directly to Henley Festival Catering.

What food will I be offered if I have special dietary requirements?

We cater for most special dietary requirements, these should be made clear when selecting your choices. Menus with alternatives for gluten free, dairy free and vegan can be provided when requested.

Can I pre-order my wine?

Yes.  When you have logged in to your restaurant bookings you will see a box ‘pre-order items’.  You can select and pay online so the drinks will be waiting for you at your table on arrival.  There is a greater choice of wine when pre-ordering as opposed to choosing on the night, so pre-ordering wine is advisable.

What is the wristband for?

Each guest will be given a wristband to wear on arrival at the restaurant. This is to enable you to return to your table throughout the evening and make sure that only guests who have booked to dine at the restaurant have access.

If you have any more questions or queries, please email carolyn@henley-festival.co.uk
