I have tremendous guilt that it has taken me two years(!) to finally write a review for this wonderful venue and the amazing Gill! Forgive me for being a bit of an IT chump and not getting to grips withnTripAdvisor before now! Anyway, we put on a party for 200 of our family and friends to share in our celebration... More

Attended a wedding at the albert halls and the whole day went without a hitch, great organisation and attention to detail. On the other hand Hendersons Bistro did the catering in the form of a buffet style pasta meal. Have never experience such bland pasta sauce before. i opted for the "carbonara" or as it should of been called chicken... More

For starter my partner ordered the chilled melon and orange soup and i had the smoked meat dipping platter. My partner found the soup very refreshing and the perfect starter for her as it was not...

We attended a wedding at Albert Hall in Stirling on Saturday and I can only say the whole day was superb from start to finish. The organisation was second to none. The food was lovely. The service was excellent. The bar staff were well organised. The decor in the hall and the tables were beautiful. I can honestly say that... More

Wow. The food and atmosphere were superior. We stayed at a B&B nearby and walked to and from dinner. Couldn't have been better. If I'm ever back in Stirling, I'll without a doubt eat here again.

Had to stop by Henderson's on my trip to Scotland last week and it was great again. Had the Sea bass this time, which was cooked to perfection and served by Mrs. Henderson herself. Overall I found the atmosphere very inviting and tastefully decorated, which was once of the reasons we like it so much in the first place. The... More

We really enjoyed a romantic meal here on a busy Saturday night. Felt the service and the food were excellent. I guess the restaurant could do with a make over as the decor is a bit chintzy but who cares, the food was great.

Warm welcoming place with a number of friendly servers. My wife and I enjoyed a couple sandwiches but the menu was more extensive. It is also close to many of the tourist areas as well.

We visted Henderson's Bistro after doing some internet research and finding in on TripAdvisor. When we walked in, I think my fiance was a bit disappointed that it wasn't quite as charming looking as some of the other places we passed on the way back down from the Castle. I can't stress enough - do NOT let that turn you... More
