Was looking forward to eating at Henry's so after a hard days work and looking online at they're opening times (5pm to 9pm). We arrived at 8.15pm all doors locked shut. Managed to find a staff member who said we decided to close early? Page number 1 of running a business stick to your opening times. Will now not eat... More

Dear Calum I would like to apologise for our early closure that evening. It was a last minute decision as it is my husband, John's (the chef) birthday on the 20th April he is now 55!!.

Visited with my family yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed all of the food. I had a starter of mackerel and black pudding salad followed by chicken with haggis in a very good creamy sauce. Service was excellent for our whole visit and surroundings are pleasant.

We all opted for the Easter Special Menu which... More

Food was lovely. I opted for the garlic mushrooms, chicken stuffed with haggis and chocolate fudge cake. All courses were very nice. Quick service.

Think we had higher expectations that we should have had. Food was OK but a bit bland. There was no atmosphere but the staff were very polite.

booked for dinner on Saturday. Made to feel welcome although no finesse you would expect for the price you pay. Mussels for a starter were very good BUT the Greenland prawns left a bit to be desired. Prawns, apple and celery but not tasty sauce/dressing so disappointed. Main course of fish was excellent as was the duck- couldn't fault any... More
