The Full Story



Hof&Hoff was born from the experience of 2 people with passion for food, wine and hospitality. Chris Hof has been cooking great food for over 20 years and for the last 15, producing his own wine in Robertson, South Africa, and distributing it to high level restaurants on a wholesale level. In April 2019, he and his wife Sophie opened Hof's Bar & Dining in Henley-on-Thames and have since gained a great reputation in the area for their Southern African inspired cuisine, paired with their amazing selection of red and white Hof's wines










Giles Hoff moved to Henley in 2008 with his family and business, Savile Row Travel, which specialised in luxury travel and experiences. Having steered the company through Covid, and built it to twice the pre-pandemic size, Giles sold the company in 2023 to focus on his other great passion, food and hospitality. After 32 years in the travel industry, organising bespoke experiences that often involved food & beverage, he wanted to bring his unique approach to customer service into the hospitality industry and develop his amateur chef status to a more professional level. 

And so, having been a frequent visitor to Hof's Bar & Dining, Giles and Chris have combined their respective talents to offer Hof's great wines and cuisine, brought to your home for special events and dinner parties. 

We offer a consultative approach to ensure your event is executed with precision on every level, particularly the quality of the food and the level of service our staff provide, all overseen personally by Chris & Giles



We aim to deliver quality Southern African cuisine to your home event, whether it be a 60th birthday, 25th wedding anniversary or a wedding, along with intuitive service that you would expect in a top restaurant. Our Southern African cuisine offers a variety of fish, meat and vegetarian options, and exclisively for our catering side, we offer high level South African Braai as well as the silver service option, or even a combination of the two.
