Welcome to LEANDER CLUB
The world’s most prestigious rowing club
Our historic private members’ club is a home from home for the distinguished rowers and coaches who visit during Regatta and year-round for Henley residents who love the river.
Visitors to the Clubhouse enjoy the best drinking and dining views down the iconic Henley Royal Regatta course, from the elegant bar and outside on the riverside decking. Our friendly staff organise regular social events and fitness classes. Leander’s excellent chefs provide a tantalising menu that keeps our Members coming back with their guests time and again!
