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.


The Henson takes reservations every day of the week, however please note that current restrictions have impacted our usual practices.  Bookings are available for a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 30 persons (seating for groups over 12 pax are limited due to current restrictions still in place). Apologies but we are not taking table requests and we do not allocate tables outside. Also please note no dogs are allowed inside.

All bookings must be seated within 15 minutes of reservation time or your table will be given away. If you are running late just give us a call and we may be able to arrange an alternative sitting.

Order together and you will eat together. The amount of guests you book is the number of seats you will be allocated.

PLEASE NOTE: No bookings will be taken via email or social media.


Our philosophy at The Henson is to give back to the community that give to us. We like to help out where and when we can over many different avenues. We currently sponsor:
