We dined at 1:00 on a Thursday. There were plenty of tables available. We were served immediately and settled in a lovely little beer garden. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The setting was old school pub - charming and quirky. The beverage range was excellent and well proved. The food was well balanced, with starters, burgers and mains. My beautiful wife had the pumpkin arancini balls and I had the knuckle sandwich, a wagyu brisket sandwich with slaw and pickles, which had a sneaky spice. The arancini balls were smooth and tasty. The chips... probably the best ever! Crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They made very part of me happy. There was a children's play area, facilities for your doggo and the acknowledgment of country was a welcome sight. There were places inside to eat, a number of bars and a bottle shop. Well worth a visit.

Whatever you do... DON'T order the Nasi Goreng.

Soy sauce on rice and a quick fry. Pickles dry and no flavour. Snapper dry. Sambal no flavour.

2/10 for the dish. At $30 was a complete waste of money, didn't want to finish it cos it was so terrible.

This is without doubt my favourite Inner West pub and I am fortunate to call it my local.
Consistently serving great pub food, from classics to Henson's one and only creations that are menu mainstays: Chicken roti tacos. Knuckle (brisket) sandwich.
I love the front bar for Friday lunches and lazing the nights away with mates.
The large comfy bistro is great for groups and family dinners and the beer garden tops on a winters day and summer nights.
Takeaway a great option too, to grab a meal and a sixer from the brilliant bottlo to sit on the hill at Henson Park with the kids and the pooch.
Awesome selection of brews, with all the faves and always something new to sample.
Long live The Henson.

For this weeks Pub lunch, i stepped back in time at the iconic Henson Park Hotel - the proud home of the Newtown Jets ?. Every corner tells a story, with walls adorned by vintage posters that echo the glory days of legends like Tommy Raudonikis. The spirit of camaraderie is alive, making each visit more than just a meal. Speaking of, the 'dirty bird' special had us savouring every bite! ???- #NewtownJetsLegacy #HensonParkHotel #HistoricPubs #RugbyLegends #CulinaryJourney #pub

Our second time coming here and left again less than impressed. The last time we ordered burgers/sandwiches, they were 'decent'. Yesterday we ordered the budda salad and the shrimp salad and both flavours were underwhelming.

The shrimp were overcooked, the texture combinations were a little weird and for the price you're paying you should be able to expect something a lot better. The only reason for coming here twice is that they have a dog friendly courtyard to which we can bring the dogs along with us.

The bar service is decent. I would highly recommend that if you want a proper feed, to get it somewhere else. The plating itself looked 'okay'. The outdoor area was for the second time quite dirty and tables left to be cleaned for quite some time.

I love this place. First and foremost, it's Pokie free, as all pubs should be. You wanna play the slaps go to the casino. What I love about this pub is that it's totally family-friendly and pet friendly! It used to be a dingy old man's pub for mostly locals, but since it's refresh, it's become the go-to pub for inner West families.

The food is great and caters to everyone. The service is nice and (usually) fast depending on how busy they are. Lots of options and decently priced.

There's a great beer garden where pets are welcome. It's not a huge space, but it's enough for a small suburban pub. Inside, there's plenty of seating as well and a cool video game arcade to have a go at.

This is one of my favourite pubs in Sydney with a really nice atmosphere that has a mix of locals and ring-ins. The beers are pretty good too, with lots of options on tap. It's great on a sunny day.

DO MOT GO HERE. Such a shame that the kitchen staff let down what might have been an otherwise enjoyable visit. Marina and Robert were delightful. The three cooks in the kitchen were arrogant, unhelpful and downright autocratic in their attitude towards customers and even to the staff. My daughter in law is highly allergic to milk and all dairy products. They refused to substitute the non dairy bun on the fish burger, stating that they were too busy. There was one other order apart from ours. The manager- new- said the kitchen staff are not within his remit, which is very odd indeed. And they purposely gave us over spiced and cold food. A complete disconnect which doesn't work for the rest of the staff or more importantly the customers. Would never recommend or return. Shame for the two nice staff.

My family and I had a beautiful birthday dinner at Henson Park Hotel tonight and everything was five star! The service, the food, the atmosphere! The staff were super friendly and went above and beyond to ensure that everything was just as we needed. I'll definitely be back! Highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for somewhere casual with yummy food and A+ service :-))

Large pub. Very busy and extremely family friendly (including dogs). Very noisy inside - what you expect from a Sydney pub. The food (we tried several burgers and a sandwich) were just average. The beer was good. It seems to be really popular - just not really for me. There are much better options in Sydney for decent food and the option to talk to, not shout at each other.

Vibrant kid friendly atmosphere awaits you at the Henson. We enjoyed margaritas and a Spritz that were delicious albeit a tad slow. Food was speedy and down right yummy! Would recommend, great vibe.

We came here for dinner recently and were largely impressed with the place. A very large, over all tidily decorated pub with a lot of separate areas (bar, dinning, outside etc) which meant there was a ton of space. Plenty of beer on offer across different taps in the different areas. The menu sounded really interesting with a mixture of cuisine influences. Our food came quick and it was all tasted great. Service was great and would definitely come back if we were in the area again.

Great vibe, nice spot with a good atmosphere.

I was a bit disappointed by the lamb shank (singular, despite their menu saying "shanks"). I'll grant that meat is certainly more expensive recently, but the serving size is quite small. Could have been made up for with more mash or veggies, but those were both conservative servings as well. The mash was delicious, the dish would have been redeemed with more of it!

My friend had the chicken burger and said it was fantastic - so, tip to the wise, get a burger!

Great pub. Good vibe, family friendly and expansive beer selection. Food is outstanding. Can't rate the dirty bird meal high enough - gives many of the local charcoal chicken places a run for its money. The soft serve desserts are a sweet addition

Welcoming staff, family friendly service with a relaxed vibe. Great pub grub with delicious burgers and fresh chips. Met up with my friend who has a child and the staff were accommodating, making sure she didn't have to carry the baby chair by herself and cleaning each table between the guests leaving.
The cocktails are worth the money, Lemon drop is fantastic and light, not too sweet or sour. This place would suit small or large gatherings, it can get busy so get in early or book a table in advance so you dont miss out. Space inside and outside with covered/shady spots and dog friendly too! There is a parent room and kids play area outside, but due to covid these are currently unavailable - fair enough, we can wait till things settle down. Cheers to the team at Henson, we will be back!

Visited Henson's for the first time today. Why have I not been there earlier!! Such a cool, laid back vibe with fantastic food and drinks. The chicken wings and knuckle sandwich were outstanding as was the warm mulled wine! Finished off by in house soft serve gelato. Grace and Jenny and the rest of the staff were wonderful, so warm and welcoming. An old, funky, local pub with so much character. Thanks for a great experience. Great 70's disco playlist.....can't wait to visit again!!! Highly recommend

Favourite local pub in the inner west.
Back section for families and kids. Front bar for a real pub without kids! Lucky I can walk there from home

A funky and hip location to unwind after a long work week with friends.

Food was yummy and prepared quickly.

Drink selection was varied.

The vibe of the The Henson was really relaxed, fun and welcoming. A great diversity of people enjoying time with family, friends and furry family.

Different areas to enjoy within.
