Great news for The Great House this year as we are under new ownership.

Situated in a delightful position in the picturesque village of Sonning-on-Thames nestled between Reading and Henley, parts of The Great House date back to Elizabethan times.

The village of Sonning was described by Jerome K Jerome in ‘Three Men in a Boat’ as, ‘the most fairy-like little nook on the whole river’. Today you can while away a sunny afternoon in the garden, gaze out at the Thames and reflect on their comical adventures.

The Great House prides itself of friendly and professional service at all times and can cater for informal dining, private functions, wedding receptions and conferences. Our seasonal menus are designed with an emphasis on quality local produce.

The new Café and Bar is open for delicious cakes, pastries, coffees, afternoon teas and has a fantastic new menu from noon – 6.30pm as well as brunches at the weekend.

Our 50 bedrooms are all ensuite and the Clock Tower houses 18 spacious executive double rooms with mini safes and twin bathrooms. Enjoy a relaxed weekend break - take dinner with us on one evening and maybe visit the unique Mill at Sonning Theatre just across the bridge, on the second.

On the top floor of the Clock Tower (with lift access) are two modern conference rooms with integrated audio-visual equipment and air conditioning. The recently installed high capacity wi-fi is free and available throughout the hotel.

The Great House is a sought after venue for Weddings and is licenced to hold civil marriage ceremonies as well as receptions. Regatta has its own private terrace for arrival drinks and the beautiful willow tree by the river is the perfect background for your wedding photographs. Our experienced team will assist you with planning your special day to your own individual requirements.
