The Henson is an established old pub which means a great deal to the community. Fantastic selection of beer and wine. Terrific pub food with an excellent menu and choices. Great area for children.

A great Asian-inspired menu and friendly staff. We had an amazing afternoon in the sun with our dogs, and there is a great entertainment area for kids. It was busy but never chaotic, and still quick service.

Recently had dinner with a couple of friends. Food was good pub food. Sunday night was busy with families. If you have children you can sit out the back. Without little ones you can sit in the front bar area. Really caters for all.

We didn't have trouble finding off street parking. Worth the walk if you have to park a distance away.
