If you and your mates were to open up a small bar in the suburbs, you'd probably want it to turn out like this. Think cosy and brimming with character. Think chairs you can sink into, and a beer garden likely to steal away many an afternoon and evening.
You'll find all that at Mr Henderson in Sandgate — and you'll also find a large drawing of a shoe on their wall, too. That's a nod to the site's former history, with a boot repair place previously calling the building home.
Of course, décor and atmosphere is one thing; a bevy of beverages and a flurry of food is another. Don't worry, you'll find all that here too, including eight beers on tap, plenty more in the fridge, and an expertly curated list of wines and spirits. Mr Henderson's dining menu might only boast six options — vegetarian mushroom pate, octopus marinated in chilli and lime, and a cheese selection among them — but that's because they're always calling in a little help from their friends. Don't be surprised to see a food truck outside, with the rotating array of street eats all part of the bar's charms.
