CONCEALED in Market Place, just a little way up the hill behind the town hall, Antico is one of Henley’s gems — a family-run restaurant with a charm so hard to find in bigger establishments nowadays.
You sense the magic of Italy weaving its spell on you as you enter the shady passageway leading to the restaurant entrance.
Antico is like a cosy dining room with a beamed ceiling, beautifully laid tables and comfortable seats covered in plump velvet cushions. Antico offers a pretty garden courtyard, surrounded by brick and flint walls and protected by a pergola of trailing vines, ideal for a cool lunch or an al fresco dinner by candlelight. There is also a private function room which can hold up to 28 guests. This is ideal for birthdays, anniversaries or other celebrations and free to hire.
On Mothering Sunday (March 30), Antico is offering a three-course set menu for £24.80 and children can eat for half price.
