Welcome to The Henson

The Henson is a community driven hotel, supporting, supplying and serving the best from our local neighbourhood.


Henson Park Hotel as it was formerly known has a rich & wonderful history with the folk of the inner-west. Everyone’s got a story to tell. Our front bar is an honest working class bar, whilst our back dining plays homage to its art deco roots. Our leafy beer garden has a large adjoining children's area, welcoming families and children of all ages.

Our focus is on quality, seasonality and sustainability. Supporting ethical and responsible practises. The Henson is a playground for everyone to enjoy.

Our bottle shop, Grocery & Grog is a purveyor of the Inner-West’s finest selection of bespoke spirits, fine wines, ports, sherries and craft brews. We also stock a range of artisan cheeses, chocolates, condiments and provisions.

We pride ourselves on sourcing only the best.
