The Finest Ingredients

You’ll love exploring our fridges, shelves and deli counter for interesting ingredients for your next cooking adventure. We’ve searched high and low for artisanal products of exceptional quality, so you can create delicious dishes at home.


The on-site kitchen, led by Tania Steytler, serves up familiar deli classics as well as dishes hailing from Europe and beyond, showcasing the chef teams’ skills and backgrounds. Whether it’s a hot breakfast take-out of verbena harissa shakshuka, a rotisserie chicken and wild mushroom sandwich or a proper suet-crust steak and porter pie to enjoy at home, the kitchen creates dishes to cover morning, midday and later.
Formerly of Severn & Wye Smokery, Gloucestershire, and, more recently, Jeow Jeow in London, Tania says, “Honestly, it’s quite simple – we’re chefs because we love it. Guided by suppliers and customers, our goal in the kitchen is to do our absolute best to produce really great food.”

A Potted History

25 Market Place is thought to be among four properties left by William Barnaby to the Corporation of Henley, the greater part of the rents and profits going to poor townsfolk and the upkeep of the church and bridge. Barnaby (d.1587) was a successful draper who owned at least ten tenements and a shop.


c. 1471

The long rear wing may represent an extension to a medieval open hall, itself rebuilt in the C16 as a two-storey, timber-framed structure


Referenced in the Quakers’ Minute Book of 1705 25 Market Place was known as the Rose and Crown coaching inn (not to be confused with the public house of that name formerly at 56 New Street, Henley-on-Thames


The stables and outbuildings were damaged by a fire in 1766 and rebuilt by William Bradshaw to a specification of December 1771


After the closure of the Rose and Crown, the property was let on an 11-year lease to the waggoner William Atkins in 1812, while a small shop, part of the same premises was let to William Cooper as yearly tenant


An adjoining gateway (and presumably the chamber over) was leased to Robert Owthwaite for 99 years from 1831. Owthwaite described himself in the 1841 census as a cabinet maker, but is better known as a Henley builder and landowner


In 1896 the brothers John and Thomas Facy established a drapers' stores at 25 Market Place, expanding into the adjacent properties after the First World War. Facy’s vacated 25 Market Place in 2011, but continue to occupy nos 27-31


The property was awarded Grade II listed status
