Ale Trail

Henley is still blessed with numerous traditional pubs. One of the best ways of discovering a few of them, while discovering the town at the same time is to take part in the Henley Ale Trail.

Local Pub Company Brakspear challenge you to visit their 10 pubs in the town, enjoy a pint of Brakspear Bitter or Oxford Gold and get your map stamped.

The map can be downloaded here, can be picked up at any of the participating pubs or in the Tourist Information Centre at the Town Hall.

Visit the Three Horseshoes or the Saracen’s Head as your final destination to claim your FREE pint of Brakspear Bitter and a rather fetching T-shirt.

Don’t feel under pressure to visit all the pubs in the same day, as there is no end date for the Trail and if you fancy doing it more than once, or just fancy a change from the t-shirt, you can choose the gift set that includes 2 x 500ml of Brakspear ale and 1 x Brakspear tankard pint glass along with a FREE pint of Brakspear Bitter.

There’s also an Ale Trail party every year for everyone who has completed the trail and if you want to see more of the beautiful countryside in the area you could always follow one of the Country Ale Trails.

More Information

If you don’t have time to visit lots of pubs try Henley’s own micro brewery, Lovibonds, making hand crafted beers in quirky premises tucked behind Greys Road car park.
