After hearing very mixed reviews, we tried the Henley. One of the diners was very reluctant after a terrible experience a few years ago. New fresh staff made a difference.
Food was served hot and exactly as ordered with a smile. We started with the platter which was enough for 4 if you cut a few items in half. I then had the steak and ribs which were tender and delicious. The others tried the trio of seafood and were impressed. Not room for desert. Wine prices were reasonable and the list fair.
Each night has a different offer. Sunday nights kids ate for free, so there were a few families in attendance. Tables were spread out and venue was warm.
We will venture back another night.

We decided to try the Henley Beach Hotel with hopefully a view of the water.
We did get a table but we were astonished at how many tables were reserved on this cold, Winter Wednesday.
The service was adequate and the menu offered a senior's special $12 menu, clearly why there were so many bookings.
The wine list was comprehensive for a suburban pub and the food was good, not great. Bye the way, we didn't get a table with a view of the beach due to the reservations.

Yes this is a pub, but the food is above average and the view to the beach is nice too. The Miso braised pork was very tender, the fish and chips were a generous serve however the Henley Hot Pot ( basically a thin fish/shellfish stew) was lacking volume. This could easily be fixed by adding some noodles to the broth, which would make it more like a Chinese Hot Pot. 2 of the group indulged themselves with the sweets on offer and were very happy that they did. The coffee was good too.

The chief drawback of the dining area is that it is very noisy. Lots of hard surfaces which bounce sound around. This is an issue in many eating places, not just at the Henley. I wish that hotels/restaurants would emply a sound engineer to look at their dining areas and to put in the appropriate sound damping for the situation.

There must be a new cook....really a lovely setting if somewhat noisey at lunchtimes, especially on the weekends. Great seniors menu and I had the best spaghetti Marinara there with a glass of Pepperjack Shiraz which a local winery and super lovely.
An avid traveller for 5 times in Italy, I have not found a nicer Marinara even in the cinque Terre. Try it out as they have lifted their game. As in Australia, pub lunchtime meals are between 12-2pm and you pay first. Service is minimal but the prices are good.

We visited here for dinner one evening after watching the sunset on the beach. Although fully booked, they still accommodated us and we had a lovey table outside (with the heaters). Staff are very friendly and the menu has a range to choose from. There are dinner specials each night, so check out what's on the night you go and perhaps ask how you get the discount as we weren't too sure we had it. Good prices for the food too, highly recommend for an evening dinner just set back from the seafront (but with still a great view).
