The Barn Bar

The famous Barn Bar is the largest public bar on the Regatta course and has been operating since the 1930's. It's riverside garden is a great place to soak up the Regatta atmosphere. For the first time for 2015 we are making tickets available to pre-purchase prior to the event at a reduced rate.

Be assured the great atmosphere, riverside gardens, full bar and fantastic entertainment will remain!  We have a stage with a DJ playing out across the garden and the river on Saturday night from our friends at Eightray Music.  The team at Peppermint bars will keep the drinks flowing with their usual fantastic service, keeping the queues down to give you plenty of opportunity to hit the Dancefloor.
We pride ourselves in creating a nice environment to enjoy the Regatta with a large lawned riverside garden with views of the river with luxury loos, friendly security, live sport on TV and plenty of seating for all in the garden area. Taxis can pickup and drop off at Gate B just a couple of minutes walk away.

Saturday is legendary at The Barn Bar with views of the racing from the riverside garden, with a live band playing throughout the day with DJs taking over at the end of racing to get the evening party started. The Barn Bar is a great viewing point to watch the fireworks (independently run) on Saturday Evening at 10pm. The perfect way to end your day during Henley Regatta.
