Description:
The Great House at Sonning is a hotel and restaurant with a riverside garden on the River Thames near Sonning Bridge at Sonning, Berkshire, England. It is possible for patrons to moor along the towpath running past the hotel on the river.

It was formerly a public house, known as the White Hart because King Richard II's wife, Catherine of Valois was kept prisoner at the Bishop's Palace in the village after his death. In 1989, the original White Hart was combined with The Red House, previously a private home on Lee's Hill where the dramatist Sir Terence Rattigan resided during 1945–47, to become The Great House.Angela Perkins, The Book of Sonning: The story of an English village, 2nd edition. Buckingham: Baron Books, 1999. ISBN 0-86023-659-5. Page 152.

On the opposite side of the road are Deanery Garden and St Andrew's Church.Close by, just over Sonning Bridge, is The Mill at Sonning, now a dinner theatre. On the opposite Oxfordshire bank of the Thames is another riverside hotel and restaurant, The French Horn.
