Planning a party? Why not let Henderson's handle the hard work, leaving you free to enjoy yourself. Whatever the occasion, we have the perfect package to take the strain out of entertaining.

For smaller events our recently refurbished bistro offers a wonderful setting for groups of up to 25 people seated, or 50 standing; both the restaurant and wine-bar are also available for hire and can seat up to 75 people each. For a venue with a difference the Henderson Gallery can accommodate up to 40 for a sit-down meal, 60 for an auditorium-style presentation or 100 for a standing reception. Catering, from drinks and canapes up to a full-blown vegetarian banquet, is provided from our own kitchens by our own award winning chefs and we can even arrange live entertainment for you.

We also have an exciting and atmospheric venue, new in 2009: Henderson's @ St John's below St John's Church at the corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road is available for hire for all sort of evening events. It holds up to 80 people seated or 200 standing, delicious catering can be provided from Henderson's famous kitchens - and we can supply live music or DJs too.

Alternatively, our chefs can come to you: Henderson's specializes in outside catering and we would be delighted to meet your requirements for anything from an intimate dinner party to the grandest of wedding receptions.
