Dined in for the second time at Hennessy's. Had lamb shanks both times. A bit of mint sauce would've sweetened the deal even more but that's no biggie. The portions served are huge! Had one serving of bread and dips for entree and one serving of then lamb shank for main. My partner and I shared our meal yet we... More

Standard pub, offers the usual variety of grub and offerings of spirits, beers and wine. Reasonably good value considering its location in such a tourist based town. If there's some love sport been played chances are they'll have it on.

Good atmosphere. Great food and service. Highly recommended. Good barmaid (Hillary, I think, sorry if I've got name wrong). Knew our drinks by 2nd night. Good waitress/welcomer, little lass from Blackpool.

The bar was one lively place with so many people laughing and chatting. It was not peaceful so don’t expect some alone time here. The atmosphere was charged as people laughed and talked. The barman was wonderful and chatted quite a bit with us. The drinks were well priced and they had a large stock considering the place was filled... More

Let's see. The Lambs Fry was mountainous and tasty. The beer and stout cold and very Irish. The waitress has a delightful Irish accent Hmm must be an Irish pub. They do it well very well. For a Maloney far from home this is why Aussies come to NZ to they get somethings right. This pub has atmosphere.

Wet rainy evening called into Hennessy's to get out of the rain. Meal was value for money however what made our night exceptional was a waitress called Claire. She was full of advise as to which Irish beer we should try next. No matter how busy she was she could not do enough to make sure we enjoyed our visit.... More

Basic meals and nothing to rave about but good if you like a pub meal. Prices are a little high for what you get.
