Let's Meet at ... Spice Merchant, Henley

Reviewed by David Bandey, MD at French Jones Corporate Public Relations.

It's summer, and the perfect way to entertain clients is by taking a lazy lunchtime cruise along the Thames. Spice Merchant in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, is an intimate and stylish Indian restaurant that offers front-row seats looking across to the Leander Club and the course made famous by the Royal Regatta.

As part of its exclusive dining experience, this exotic restaurant offers private parties the opportunity to hire a 12-seater Edwardian-style chauffeured vessel on the fantastic river- perhaps the ultimate take-away meal.

Food at the Spice Merchant is exquisite. Five internationally acclaimed chefs bring authentic dishes from India, ranging from regional specialities to dishes traditionally cooked for maharajahs. There is the option to order platters of finger snacks to enjoy during the cruise, or to order a full meal beforehand at the restaurant.

If the weather prohibits champers on the river, the interior of the restaurant is by no means a letdown. Elegant decor and friendly staff make corporate entertaining a delight. There are also two private rooms upstairs with stunning views.
