    One of our favourite pub food places. The atmosphere is always good but we tend to go mainly Sundays when it isn't too busy. Love the food and the pinball machine room!

    Doesn't look like much from outside, so is a really nice surprise when you step inside. Great for Sunday brunch. Good food, the pork belly was very good. Great ambience and service. Well catered for families.

    I used to come to this pub frequently many years ago, long before its current incarnation as an inner-west trendy style of gastro pub - complete with boutique beer selection & the currently popular Mexican fusion style food. Back in those old days: this place was a lot less salubrious with a smoke filled poker machine room & a front bar with TAB & courtyard doing steaks & burgers. I thought that it was actually quite good back then but now in its current incarnation: it's fabulous of course!

    We came on Saturday evening for a friend's birthday celebration & ordered a selection of share dishes: pulled pork nachos, serrano ham on a board with other nibbly things (there not enough bread), fried kumara chips, fried squid, a couple of others I cannot remember & they were all good. The ambiance: a few screaming children - parents: if you are going to bring your kids out socially - please control them.

    A worrying aspect is that I saw plenty of people smoking out in the court yard where all the kids were running around and I really don't think that smoking + alcohol + children is a very good combination. But having said all that the food & service was really very, very good - despite the place being crowded, hectic & noisy. I recommend coming here for lunch on a sunny week-day afternoon when there are no kids.

    Have been here twice for lunch. Nothing but praise for the meals and service. First visit was an early lunch with friends, fish was delicious and fresh. Waitstaff were friendly and polite. Second time was with family, again everyone was happy with their meals, one went back for a second serving of chips, which was so quick to arrive, and it was a busy Saturday arvo, so well done. There were a few families there with younger children, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. A nice place to be.

    For an average looking pub, the dining is well worth it, a different world of fine foods, that you won't be disapoined, if your in the area, don't overlook this little gem.

    I only tried the fish taco, but it wasn't memorable.

    With a group of twelve I dined at the Henson on Saturday night, it's a craft beer / gastro pub which caters to large groups, locals and families. Newly refurbished it still has a lot of it's original charm. It's busy and noisy.

    The food is a step up from an average pub meal, Karage chicken or Barramundi burgers, Duck shepherd's pie $24 grilled snapper $23, I tried the pulled pork taco and the chicken taco which were both quite authentic, $10 each. The service was fantastic, and the queue at the bar moved quickly. Well worth a visit.

    Just had first and last dinner at The Henson I'm sorry to say.

    Food very average. Snapper - dry, vegies- minimal, chips- over thick, undercooked, tasteless. Chicken Burger - left mostly uneaten by our friend.

    We had to complain about the volume of music - not only was it so loud our table of 6 could not enjoy a conversation even between 2, but the type of music was bewilderingly inappropriate crashing rock/garage something so unbelievably unsuitable to dine to.

    Thanks but no thanks, never any need to go there again. Waitresses were all wonderfully nice and helpful.

    Best pub I've been in for a while. Good Food. Slightly middle eastern bent, but still pub food. Certainly well suited to beer. Friendly atmosphere and some good local beers on tap. Good for kids in the Bistro too. Even some good wines by the glass. Only negative was it was a little noisy despite being only 80% full. Not sure what they could do about that. Great place overall. I'm keen to go back.
