Front bar has lots of Henson Park/Newtown Jets memorabilia, bar stools, beers on tap, etc, in-between area there is a take-away bottle shop, upmarket for that kind of establishment, which also holds cold meats, pantry items, etc, food area/bistro little muddled, noisy, but good honest american type food, cater for children with a play area out the back (also covered area for them, cubbyhouse style). All round pretty happy place, not bad service, interesting clientelle, good beers/ciders on tap, etc.

I’ve been at the Henson several tomes and finally decided it is not for me. Very noisy place if you want to be able to talk. Great for families with kids but if you don’t have them you will find yourself feeling like you went to a childcare rather than a pub or a place to eat. Not for me. The food is slightly overpriced for what they offer but it’s a diverse and ok menu.

We are lucky to be able to visit the Henson every year and are never disappointed. Over the years the decor has improved massively but the atmosphere always remains the same.
Great value food and always a warm welcome

Thirteen of us arrived for a mid-week lunch to farewell a colleague. We’d booked (luckily as the place was humming) and were shown to a long table near the bar. We had gluten free types, vegos, fish only types, and carnivores in our group and everyone was very happy with the choices available. There are some great craft beers on tap and a couple of cocktails tried were declared “delicious”.
We didn’t feel squished in - the traffic to the bar and kitchen didn’t result in chair bumps or the awful situation of other people standing almost over you as they waited to order. The atmosphere is casual, bustling, cheerful. The meals are ordered at the bar and delivered to your table pretty quickly. Everyone was happy with their chosen meal, the food is fresh and very tasty.
Not too hipster.
