Description: Welcome to Henrick's Bar & Bistro. Since 2010, Ailsa and Chris have continued to grow the Henrick's reputation, ensuring that we are always offering the best service, ambience, food and drink in the Bruntsfield and Tollcross area. Throughout our 7 years at Henrick's, we have evolved. We have had two refurbishments, a wedding (ours) and even started growing our own staff (Hamish was born in 2014), so whether your popping in for either a wee glass of something refreshing, a bite to eat or just a catch up, come ans say hello, as we love seeing new and regular faces each day.

“Wonderful, friendly bar with great food too!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great place to catch up with friends, go out for a meal, or just for a quiet drink after work. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need. It is just along from the King's Theatre in Edinburgh so is also a great place to meet before or after a show. We have had a few meals here now and have always been extremely impressed. Would definitely recommend this bar for food, drinks and lovely atmosphere.

“Superb Meal”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Recommended to Henrick's by a local guest hotel, I was not disappointed. Even though it was a very warm Edinburgh evening the bar was relatively quiet - there were plenty of beers, wines and cocktails to choose from - the menu was small and I would certainly recommend the steak - it was cooked perfectly, with a nice choice of extra such as a large roasted wine of tomatoes and 4 excellent onion rings. I would have like to have room for a dessert but the main course was so filling, I will have to return for another meal.

“must get back . . .”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

we had been disappointed the last couple of times we visited and based the other side of town this last year, little thought to "second chance" - however, we'd heard good reviews from friends and popped by last night for post holiday catch-ups over drinks + coffee

the staff were very welcoming and the food served to the adjacent table looked as scrummy as the folks obs to their waitress suggested

we'll certainly pop by again for a more leisuredly eve / meal

“Lazy lunch”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We spent a wonderful celebratory lunch drinking Prosecco and chilling out after a special event. Light lunch personally delivered by the chef....and the promise of a new menu very soon. Can't thank the staff enough. Ailsa, Grant and Sarah are amazing. Thank you!

“wonderful visit---relaxing and friendly”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

On a rainy, humid afternoon in Edinburgh, after a soaking while tramping over Calton Hill, our taxi driver recommended this place as a good stop to rest and refresh with food and drink. He was absolutely correct!!!! lovely atmosphere, wonderful food, attentive staff and great bar selection.
Two families with small children were there enjoying their meals, but there is an adult, hip vibe also. My husband loved the venison casserole, and our son and I sampled and enjoyed several of the side dishes. Staff members were attentive and friendly, but not intrusive--seemed to have a sixth sense for when we might need something or have a question.
We wish we could have stayed longer, but had to meet the rest of our party. Highly recommended!
