“Henry Lee’s is one polished establishment. Through the iron gate and past the kitchen with irresistible smells emanating from within, lies a sun-bathed courtyard with enough shade and comfortable seating to keep you entertained for hours… The team behind it has something to be proud of and SoS will definitely be back.“
“The interior design has kept aspects of the venue’s manufacturing history; bare stone walls and milled railway sleepers remain intact. A leafy courtyard breathes life into the industrial space.”
“…it’s well worth the wait! And if things do get dicey while you’re waiting (I’m forever hangry) you can get something from the baked goods section as takeaway.”

Apart from Henry Lee’s, what’s Redfern’s best kept secret?
The local community garden tucked away in Young Lane, Redfern. This little patch of heaven allows the community to get involved in lots of different ways. From planting and nurturing the vegetables to interacting with other locals and creating new friendships. This is what life is about we believe.
What’s your favourite thing about working in Redfern?
