“Excellent Service & Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Visited for a quick lunch on a Saturday afternoon with my mum. The portion sizes were good and the food was fantastic. Was very impressed with all round service and would highly recommend.

“Wedding Venue/Catering for Wedding Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

I can 100% recommend Henderson's for your wedding package. We booked the Albert Hall's and wedding with them for March 2014.

We had looked at a number of venues. The great thing in comparison to hotel weddings and the very reason we opted for Henderson's is that you can totally bespoke your package. Jill Henderson and her Head Chef Lawrence advised and helped us create our perfect Wedding Breakfast. We wanted certain touches to the food and drinks package which they delivered on.

With so much time taken up with other related arrangements, Henderson's set up the venue just the way we requested. This entailed decoration, table layout, lighting, DJ and a number of other things. They also went that extra yard with a few things that we had not planned and they were an added surprise for us both (thank you Jill)

Guests will pay lip service and say what a lovely meal/venue but I know for sure the compliments were sincere. Lastly, just a quick promotion of a band we used. They are called Funtime Frankie... Great vocals and acoustics backed up by background computer synthesized sound inputs.

Keep up the good work Hendersons! Prospective customers....give them a visit!

“Hidden gem in centre of Stirling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

We drove into the centre of Stirling looking for car parking and somewhere to eat and were fortunate to discover Henderson's Bistro. They even have a small free car park at the door!
This is just inside the front doors of the Albert Halls a centre of entertainment for the past 150 years! The decor is modern but comfortable - they don't always go together - and the staff are friendly and attentive.
Henderson's promises to deliver uncompromising quality and this is reflected is their detailed menu for lunch and dinner, plus deli sandwiches.
Everything on the menu is described in minute detail: For instance a main course of - Free range chicken fillet with an apricot and mascarpone cheese mousse served with creamy thyme scented potatoes and buttered asparagus finished with a champagne and mushroom jus!
My early lunchtime deli sandwich was Honey Roasted Ham and Mature Cheddar grilled on top of toasted muffins with fruit chutney on the side. It could have been improved by adding two poached eggs, a cheese sauce, and simply calling it Eggs Benedict!
Also, they only serve coffee by the cup and this was cold by the time the sandwich arrived. Much better if they sold coffee by the pot, or offered free top-ups!
Henderson's bistro provides catering for functions and weddings as well. Stirling Town Council, owners of the Albert Halls, are to be congratulated on their choice of a catering compant that operates right on the premises and provides excellent service to the local community!

“Best lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Three of us serendipitously found this at the Albert Halls whilst visiting an antique show and sale.

I had melted Brie with vegetables sandwich with coleslaw, the others had BLT with chips and crayfish sandwich with crayfish and chips. The chips were memorable , fat, fluffy and crunchy

Service wonderfully discrete

A definite find
