Based at a prime New Town location on Hanover Street since 1962, Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant’s longevity is a testament to its consistently exquisite and heart-warming food. Undoubtedly one of Edinburgh’s most famous and best loved vegetarian restaurants, Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant is an absolute must for ethical eaters in the city, but the quality and freshness of their creative cuisine has made it a favourite among centre city carnivores, too. Nobody will leave disappointed, so book a table for this popular Hanover Street institution now!
Established in 1962, Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant is more Edinburgh institution than trend-following vegetarian eatery. Still, the flagship of this famous family of eateries can certainly compete with any chic inner-city vegan and vegetarian joint in terms of cool points. Decked out with sleek furniture and creative lighting, though still with a comforting and casual atmosphere in their historic Hanover Street location, this vegetarian restaurant befits cool cats and business types as well as it does health-conscious or ethical eaters. That said, however, Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant doesn’t rely on its enviable New Town location, cool design or suave lunch crowd for its reputation.
You may be impressed by Hendersons recent expansions around Edinburgh, or their growing popularity and praise around Scotland and beyond – but the proof of the pudding is, as always, in the eating, and Hendersons proves that being guided by vegetarian and vegan principles in no way limits possibilities in terms of flavour, creativity and enjoyment. Hendersons Salad Table & Restaurant on Hanover Street has become one of the New Town’s most beloved restaurants over the past half century, a reputation undoubtedly built on the superb quality of their food. The menu changes regularly, but you can be sure of a bevy of heart-warming treats, from internationally inspired dishes like Thai spring rolls and slow-baked Moroccan stews to local necessities like organic fresh bread and oatcakes.
Great food and service. Hadn’t been since the 70’s!! Would recommend even for non vegetarians like me. I had the Moroccan couscous with bake aubergine. It was so good 😊
Great hot evening meal this evening! With delicious puddings to follow. If all vegetarian food was this good, no one would miss meat or fish again!
Great Burns Night Supper. Amazing food and a good way to catch up with a friend. Loved the address to the Vegan Haggis , well done.
