We had my husband's surprise birthday dinner at the Henson last Friday. It was very busy, but the service crew not only got our orders right, they executed a change of tables for us and still served us the correct food without a table number plaque card. Food arrived hot and delicious after just 15 minutes of placing an order, I thought this was fantastic given it was a very very busy night. My friends and I enjoyed the food and would not hesitate to come back again. In fact, my friend was so in love with his rack of ribs, he was still raving about it hours later.

We ate here many times when it first opened and it was alway busy but a good night out. Now it doesn't seem to matter what time we go to eat it is noisy, frenetic, and the kitchen cant keep up with orders. Told it would be 40 mins wait for simple food so gave up and left.

Henson serves the standard meat dishes you would expect to find in a pub with loads of interesting vegetarian also on the menu. We had; guacamole to start (yum!) green paw paw with barramundi, gado gado, poke bowl and lamb with quinoa and sumac. All were good. A very busy place for a wed night but staff are fun and on top of it. Tons of sitting, indoor and outdoor areas, even a terrific children's crèche. A relaxed atmosphere rules. I can't wait to go back.

We are regular visitors to the Henson. We often go as a couple for dinner and to enjoy some time on the pinball machines. It's also a great place to take our family when they visit as they have young children and the kid play pit out the back is a winner for the little ones.
The food is delicious and I love the chicken wings!
Kids meals come with grapes and there are kid friendly snacks as well.

The staff are tops! Always really friendly and knowledgeable about the food and the drinks. Prices are reasonable too. Thursday nights are always fun with the barrel draws so we often find an excuse to make our way up there for a fun night out.
