LEANDER CLUB DURING HENLEY ROYAL REGATTA
There’s something very special about Leander Club during HRR. Members can invite guests and enjoy the unique atmopshere in the clubhouse and garden. Relax and recharge among rowing legends of the past and present, before heading back down the bank for more racing action.
Members and their guests are welcome to settle in our relaxing bar with views down the Regatta course. It’s a great spot to ‘work from home’, enjoy a delicious lunch, or gather for evening drinks and a meal in the restaurant. Dress code is smart casual, children welcome until 6pm.
WE ARE GIVING OUR MEMBERS MORE …
While remaining true to our heritage and culture, we want our Members to enjoy greater benefits from belonging to Leander Club. So we’re introducing more ways to enjoy our food, social spaces and hospitality. We have a programme of events and music for Members and their guests and we are open for B&B accommodation.
