The French Horn has not been sold and is still being run enthusiastically by the Emmanuel family. 

Sporting Life

Few locations in England have quite the variety of high quality sporting options within easy range.

Sunningdale and Wentworth golf courses are nearby – and Sonning on Thames itself has a scenic golf course. Racing at Windsot, Ascot or Newbury are just a short journey away. If you prefer your equine sport at grass roots level, The French Horn sponsors two races at the Kingston Blount point-to-point in March and May every year.

Henley on Thames, home to the world-famous regatta, is also close at hand. Reading Hockey Club play Premiership hockey locally. Reading Footbal Club play, at the time of going to press, Championship football at Madejski Stadium.

Hobbs of Henley offer self drive and cruising opportunities on The Thames. Boats can be available from the hotel to help you find your inner Jerome K Jerome.

Clay Shooting at Bisley and The Royal Berkshire Shooting Grounds and pegs at local shoots are available. Please ask for advice.

London Irish play Premiership rugby, also at the Madejski Stadium in Reading.
