Bentley Specialist

in Henley On Thames

Hofmanns is an independent specialist offering servicing and repairs for Bentley cars. We are a family run business, founded in 1949 by Fred Hofmann right here in Henley on Thames and serving customers throughout Oxfordshire and Berkshire. Our workshop is walking distance to the train station or town centre, and we have easy road links to both the M4 and M40 motorways.

Fred Hofmann was a passionate and successful Bentley garagiste and racer – one of the world renowned ‘Bentley Boys’. Later joined by the enthusiastic and charismatic driver Basil Mountfort, the pair would pound the concrete banking at Brooklands with Special-Bodied Bentley motor cars manufactured by themselves, right here in Henley.

Today we still maintain and restore Classic and Vintage Bentley models whilst we are equally adept at working on current Bentleys, like the Continental GT. To save your pocket our rates are less than the main dealer and we offer fixed menu pricing for the current range of Bentley cars. We use Bentley equipment and diagnostics, along with genuine Bentley parts that are covered by a 2-year warranty. Bentley specific oils are fitted, and we are able to officially record everything in your digital service book all without effecting your manufactures warranty.

We offer all the usual services you might expect from a well-equipped garage from tyres, brakes & clutch, crash repairs and diagnostics through to engine and chassis rebuilds for classic cars. We are unashamedly ‘old-school’ in that our technicians are experts and craftsman, able to conduct complex repairs and even fabricate entire new parts.

If you are short on time, we have a collection and delivery service, or you can take advantage or our fleet of modern courtesy cars. If it’s a simple job, we can offer while you wait appointments with refreshments and we will carry out a complimentary wash and vacuum after work is complete.
