“Fabulous!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is the second time we have eaten here before going to the theatre. It is fantastic, the staff, the surroundings and the food are wonderful and the pre theatre supper (2 courses for £10 95) is amazing value for money as well as being very tasty.
This is most certainly an excellent place to eat or have a coffee and feel welcome

“Dog friendly magnificent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

I went to Henricks Bar because my B&B owner (Kingsview B&B, 28 Gilmore Place, EH3 9NQ) suggested it. I ended up eating every main meal on each day of my holiday here. They are dog-friendly - including bowls of water and crunchy treats! - but also a classy bar/bistro with gastropub fare and delicious cocktails. The owners are massively friendly, the food is scrummy and well-proportioned, and around the corner is The Meadows so you (and your dog[s]!) can work off your lunch/dinner with a lovely park stroll. They also have pre-theatre and lunchtime specially-priced menus if you are budget-conscious. Henricks offer a well-priced and delicious city-centre Edinburgh meal in a dog-friendly environment.

“Fantastic bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I've lived in the area for years and eating and drank around and about, I have to say henricks is hard to beat, super friendly atmosphere, great drinks and fantastic food with some of the smiliest and friendly service in Edinburgh (you really can tell the owners have made an effort here). Whenever I have friends in town it is so nice to know I cant go wrong taking them down there...

“Could have been an off day?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Lovely bar, nicely located, efficient friendly staff, realistic menu and a great wine list. Chicken with chorizo stuffing was decidely tasty but they slipped up badly on the veg! I don't mind crunchy veg but the french beans had had only a brief acquaintance with boiling water and the mash had more lumps than even my school's kitchen could manage on a bad day. It wasn't that the potatoes were badly mashed, they were too undercooked to mash in the first place. Rhubarb crumble was good.

“Great Edinburgh Bar and Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Henrick's Bar and Bistro - great atmosphere, crowded bar but quiet(ish) tables for eating, good food, well served with excellent wines by great staff. Close to King's Theatre, the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links. Recommended!
