What’s On

Tasting Dinners, Live Music & More…

Wine tastings

From September to April the Cherwell Boathouse offers special 6 course tasting dinners. Usually midweek toward the end of the month, tastings are a great way for us to showcase our food and wine. Each evening is centered around a particular grape variety or region, or a wine ‘war’ where you will be able to compare the contrast in two wines with different dishes and vote on the best. Our most popular tastings in recent months have been Riesling, Seafood, Rhone v California, France v New World and Our Infamous Lafon Mersault evening. We also have more informal wine tastings in the marquee during the summer months. Canapes and bowl food paired with champagne or a beautiful blush rose, overlooking the river on a lovely sunny evening…

Summer events

During the Summer months more informal events such as live music & theatrical performances take place in the lower Boathouse. We also host the wonderful Opera on the river several times throughout the summer – a unique experience not to be missed. Sunshine, opera, champagne and a picnic while drifting down the Cherwell on a punt…life could be worse!
