“Excellent Pub Food”
Review of Henley Beach Hotel

Henley Beach Hotel
Ranked #8 of 47 Restaurants in Henley Beach
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 June 2018

We had a meal recently with a friend and her preference was the Henley Hotel. She visits on a semi regular basis for lunch with friends.

I have to be honest that, with all of the choices at Henley, West Lakes & Glenelg I was a little disappointed at her choice of venue. Until we visited that is.

The level and quality of service, both from the bar staff and the waiting staff was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble and their friendly but professional attention was a credit to them. And that level of service was fully backed-up by the quality of the meal. Yes, it’s Pub Grub, but a good selection, well priced and perfectly cooked and presented.

Happy to return for a meal anytime.

Visited the Hotel on Saturday with friends. We ordered the fish and chips and chicken snitzel with cream cheese and avacado topping. Entree 3 pieces of garlic bread. The garlic bread came out straight away and was hot and had heaps of taste. When the main meals came out they were only warm. Tasted like it had been sitting in the kitchen for a while before being delivered to the table. The hotel was not packed so not sure why this was. Probably won't go back.

Had tea ordered entree which arrived minutes before the main course. Staff very inattentive. Meal was reasonable but service and attention made for a very poor night

Was pretty average a few years ago, but then got new chef and new menu and all was good for a while. Went back a few days ago and standard of food had slipped back to what it used to be.
Paid $30 for a "Seafood Trio" Got a small piece of butterfish, some squid and chips and the worst part was the "Lobster" tail. After asking, I was told It was imported Slipper lobster, not local lobster. The 2 very small tails were so small they fitted into a shot glass.
Felt ripped off and told the waitress who apologised and admitted that it wasnt really acceptable to offer lobster without explaining that it was imported and not real.
As for the other meals, the Lamb shank came out so quick, it must have been pre-cooked and heated up in the microwave. Taste was average. The wine list was expensive considering it has a BWS bottleshop.
For $120 for 3 people could have done much better at Henley square or any of the other nearby pubs and restaurants. If you charge restaurant prices, better make sure the food is up to restaurant standards. Wont be back for a very long time.
