Award winning fine dining in Henley in Arden, Warwickshire, one of the oldest market towns in Shakespeare's England. 

~ Welcome to Cheal's of Henley ~ 

Chef Director Matt Cheal has always been keenly interested in food from a very young age, having grown up in his local family-owned hotel and restaurant, and after a career that included working his way up to the position of Head Chef of a Birmingham Michelin Starred restaurant Matt was able to achieve his long-held goal – Cheal’s of Henley. 
 
Together with the total support of his wife Emma, and parents Tony & Julie the family acquired the property that is now Cheal’s of Henley during 2015, and following a total restoration of the beautiful old, beamed building on the High Street, with the doors opening for our first service during October of that year. 
 
The restaurant offers 30 covers in the main restaurant plus an additional 12 covers available in our elegant separate private dining areas – ideal for celebrations or business meetings with dining. 
 
Matt and his team offer diners seasonal, and wherever possible locally sourced products, presented in delicious and inspirational creations by our dedicated teams, both in the kitchen and front of house. 
 
It is hard to believe that we are now into our seventh year and following the past, torrid couple of years, we are at last enjoying a period of calm and optimism during spring 2022 and are looking forward to summer by when we plan to have completed further works to our garden area in time for summer pre dining drinks in the heart of Henley in Arden. 
 
With input from all our talented kitchen team, led by recently promoted Head Chef Matt Nicholls, our menus will change and evolve throughout the year to compliment the changing seasons. 
 
Our passion is to serve the finest foods and wines, delivered in elegant but casual surroundings, by a team who have one overwhelming goal – to satisfy completely all our guests. 
 
On behalf of all at Cheal’s of Henley I look forward to welcoming both new and returning guests, during 2022 and beyond. 
 
 
 
Matt Cheal, Chef Director
