I recieved a lovely warm welcome which continued throughout my visit and the food was delicious! I had battered fish (crispy batter but not greasy)and chips (crispy outside but so fluffy inside)...

Very well presented and good quality food. Service was friendly and efficient. Not the cheapest around the area, but you get what you pay for

We dined here at Henderson's Bistro 4 times this year as part of our small group tours and they have not disappointed once! They even booked a table for us on a night that they were not open! We felt very, very special. The service is always pleasant, efficient and of a very high level. I have personally had the... More

First time visit, good food with good service. Decor a bit outdated and also food a bit pricey. We had the burger with fries, very enjoyable, would return but unfortunately competition is tough and many more value for money places out there.

Close by Stirling Castle, this bistro situated in The Albert Halls, welcomed us with a table by the window and a good sandwich. After calling 3 or 4 restaurants which were all full, Henderson's Bistro not only said that they'd reserve a table, they did and it was in a great location. Plenty of parking in the lot and pay...

Great building and really great service. Most restaurants in Scotland we visited over cook eggs compared to American standards. As you can see the omelet was brown, this would never fly in the US.
