Forget ‘less is more.’ Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Hudson does it all.

Tucked behind two glossy black doors is your next hangout. The high ceilings and minimalist décor make this a distinguished and classy spot. Couple this with a super seductive bar and you have yourself a restaurant that knows how to impress.

On the breakfast team are all the scrummy favourites as well as more decadent options like potato cakes with a mustard hollandaise. The lunch menu has a mixture of classics that won’t leave you feeling sluggish, whilst the dinner menu boasts delicious small plates and hearty big plates like pork belly and beef cheek that are cooked to perfection. Why not polish it off with a meat or cheese board?

There are 17 taps pouring the best local craft beer as well as a bar dedicated to gin! Turn the other corner and you have arrived at the whiskey and cocktail bar; is there anything this restaurant doesn’t do?!

Had a lovely time. The meat in our meals was cooked to melt in your mouth perfection, some lovely flavour combinations, and the house made aioli is a treat! Lovely service and a nice atmosphere.

Staff and service were both fantastic. Food was great! Good value for money really. The place was awesome. I like it's not too noisy even it's crowded (must be the acoustics).

Will surely comeback. Well done to The Hudson team!

Great atmosphere, great food and lovely staff. 10/10 would recommend!

We had friendly excellence service, serene ambience, and great seats to watch passerbys. The food came out just in time to satisfy our hunger. The salmon starter & hummous flatbread was a delight! The beefcheek burger - was melt in your mouth yumminess - though the buttermilk chicken burger needed a little more something!? Our desserts - tropical mess & coffee creme brulee - were both exquisite and packed a great explosive punch. Overall, an excellent date night with my love & would have no hestiation returning.

Loved the food. Their chicken was so moist and tender. I especially loved their truffle sauce. Everything was perfect. We were seated upstairs and the layout of the place was very relaxed and inviting. The staff were very friendly and very attentive. Thanks for the great night

My partner and I had a great meal at The Hudson on Saturday! We were seated in a nice quiet corner of the restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and well presented. We had the beef cheek and it was slow-cooked to perfection! We also ordered the gnocchi and a brie platter - both were delicious and the food was very well presented. We were also very impressed at the chef's ability to deal with my partner's food allergies - the waitress noted down the allergies and checked with the chef who was able to ensure the dish was free of any allergens. Loved our meal at The Hudson and will definitely be back!

Ordered Beef burger and Salmon Salad in the beginning. Hubbie was very happy with his burger, but the portion of my salad was a bit small, The environment and service of Hudson was great.

Fantastic service, staff were friendly and helpful. The gin bar was a particular favorite. The salad was lovely, though the added salmon was a little on the small size and resembled a finger of salmon more than a larger portion. Only a minor point on an otherwise lovely evening. Will be back.

Food was great and staff were attentive

Beautiful dinner and dessert. Excellent service. The pork belly dish and the slow beef cheek burgers - are a 'must-have'. We also tried the eton mess for dessert which was deliciously sweet but well balanced with the raspberry sorbet.

We had one of the feasting plates and the food was amazing! The beef cheek and short rib literally fell apart and melted in your mouth! The duck fat potatoes were delicious too! Favourite part was the cashew cheesecake! Definitely recommend!

Thanks Hudson and staff for a great nite out. The food was excellent and service was awesome, the night being 4th July and the place being packed did not affect great service and food. Thanks so much, we have aready been back for breakfast. Cheers David and Cheryl

The food was amazing! Very tasty and a few things that we hadn’t seen or tasted before which was a great experience. All 3 of us are qualified chefs and we all agreed that the food was great. The service was awesome with only one waitress she managed to provide a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. I highly recommend this place and to try everything!

Recommend the short rib burger, even though not usually a burger lover. The sous vide chicken was moist with many delicious flavours in the plate. Service was fast and attentive. We’ll be back!

The table was ready on arrival. The service was polite, helpful and welcoming. The menu had good choices even for a diabetic on a low carb diet. What is there more to say. This restaurant will go on to my list as a must return soon.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Hudson recently. The service was attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I had the smoked beef cheeks, my friends enjoyed the fish and chicken dishes, followed by dessert. The creme brulee was very good, with an interesting flavour and a perfect caramelised cap. The waiting staff were friendly and knowledgeable. All in all a really lovely experience and I would certainly recommend it. I also wanted to note that they let us know that we could have two hours to enjoy our meals on the First Table booking, which I really appreciated knowing up front. Thanks!

This place is AMAZING!! We were unsure about what vegan options there would be but The Hudson did not disappoint. I had the most delicious starter EVER!! Blended creamy tofu with a mushroom chutney and popadom to dips, sooo good! The service was incredible. Anna looked after us so well... the best service we've had in such a long time. Thank you Hudson and Anna :)

Hudson on Chews is lovely. There is a great vibe to it. While the menu is quite small, it is difficult to make a choice as it all looks so tempting and when the food came it didn’t disappoint. Beautifully presented and tasted just as good as it looked. The staff are friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. Good wine list too.

Super delicious food, had such a great night although it would’ve been nice to get a little low down on the menu, we did take a while to decide but overall staff were awesome and food was amazing!

We opted to share 3 different dishes. The smoky beef cheeks were a stand out for us with the buttermilk chicken coming a close second. The service from our smiley, knowledgeable and helpful waitress was superb. Lovely lively venue in the CBD.

Great food, buttermilk fried chicken was delicious! Very attentive service and no problem with us splitting the bill between four of us. Cheers!

Ate here mid-week, it was pretty busy but had no issues with the quality of the service. Our group of four had a collection of sharing plates and sides and we couldn’t fault the food. The buttermilk chicken is especially good! Love the Gin bar, will move on to the Whiskey bar next time!
