Henley on Thames

Thames Valley Catering and Event Hire are proud to deliver products across Oxfordshire including to Henley-on-Thames



Henley on Thames is a town on the River Thames in Oxfordshire. It lies nine miles north east of Reading and 23 miles south east of Oxford, very near to the point where the Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire borders meet. It is a historic town, first mentioned in 1179 and has had a market since at least 1269.

A picturesque town on the Thames, Henley is a place full of history and listed buildings. The town is well known for the Henley Royal Regatta which is held every July, attracting teams from around the world to compete for prizes which were first offered in 1839. The event is one of the highlights of the English social season and has strict dress codes within various enclosures.

Henley lies on the edge of the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is surrounded by various venues for elegant weddings and special occasions. We're proud of our base in the town, and we love to deliver wedding hire and event hire here. For more of what we deliver, read on:

Henley on Thames Crockery Hire

The cup, plate and bowl are among some of the simplest items that we hire out most at Thames Valley Catering and Event Hire. They’re not the most exciting items we have in stock but they’re an important part of many kinds of events and occasions.

We have crockery in various different shapes and sizes to match differing styles of events and occasions. Just as importantly, we have a huge quantity of crockery available in stock to ensure that we can meet demands for even the biggest events and weddings without a struggle. That being said, we do recommend that for bigger events that orders are placed with plenty of notice to ensure that they can be picked in time to be delivered.

If washing up just isn’t your thing, you don’t need to worry. Our “send it back dirty” service means all you have to do once your event is over is to scrape the crockery clean of any food debris, put it back into the packing crates that it was delivered in and we will clean them back at our warehouse.

Henley on Thames Linen Hire

Linen is a very important part of many special occasions. We have a wide variety of colours, shapes and sizes of linen to help you to find just what you require.

We stock linen in a range of different colours. You might be looking for a tablecloth so that your tables match a particular aesthetic; or it might you’re looking to use table runners to just add a detail of colour to your table. We have stock available to help work with either kind of idea.

Because banqueting tables come in various different sizes and shapes, so does our linen. We have linen to fit all the standard sizes of dining tables, and our team can help advise on what size linen you need depending on how much “drop” you want surrounding the tables.

Henley on Thames Table Hire

We have a great selection of table hire to suit a wide variety of events and special occasions. We can offer anything you might need from designer tables for events and conferences to traditional banqueting tables for weddings and functions.

Tables generally come in three types, based on how tall they are.

The tallest style of tables are called poseur tables or cocktail tables. These tables that you might find at bars and at cocktail parties and are designed either for standing up around or sitting at on bar stools. Our selection of poseur tables come in a range of colours and styles.

The lowest style of tables are coffee tables. These are low tables which are used for placing cups of coffee (hence the name), magazines and the like on and are usually surrounded by sofas or couches. We have a range of coffee tables for any type of event.

In the middle are banqueting tables. These are a set size (30 inches) in height and are the standard size for dining tables. We have round, oval and rectangular tables which can help with any size or layout of room.
