The Maidenhead Steam Enclosure

We have been offering first class hospitality at affordable prices for the last 28 years. For 2019 we are moving to a facility actually on the course - in fact just 100 yeards after the start line.

A large impressive site with quality marquee furnishings, a band stand where three different jazz bands will entertain guests throughout the day, complimentary car parking (saving £20 per car) is available right behind the marquees and the usual high standard catering for a 3-course lunch with quality wines and the classic strawberry cream tea will be served.

Another benefit is that guests can now have private tables from just 4 upwards. You are just yards from the racing action through the day with a background official commentary keeping you right up to date with the progress of the boats and the results.

"I must say we really did have the perfect day. From the time we arrived, until the time we left we were looked after very well by your attentive and entertaining staff. The location was perfect, the food was excellent, and our glass was never empty. Our invited clients were very impressed and I would highly recommend it to anyone (unless they take my booking)." Andrew Brabazon - Event Director

If you wish to leave the car behind, a local boat company, Hobbs of Henley, offer a shuttle service from their boat yard by the bridge at 10am, which after a 45 minute cruise will drop you near our facility opposite Temple Island. Check out their website for details and costs.

The iconic Mississippi Paddle Steamer, M.V. Southern Comfort will again be available for a 90 minute cruise during the day to take you up and down the course to soak up the unique atmosphere of the Regatta. Enjoy Pimms & Champagne on board.

"We all had a great time. I have to say the catering was one of the best I have experienced at such an event and of course the trip on the boat helped make the day. Basically it delivered everything we expected!" David Butcher

There is a complimentary unlimited drinks service* available from the riverside bars on site. And for clients on the Friday/Saturday complimentary access to China White's Night Club adjacent is all part of our unique offer, saving £35 - £50 - the place to be seen!

It all adds up to a memorable day out - for all the right reasons...
