Elegant yet informal, Henderson's recently refurbished bistro offers an oasis of calm amidst the stylish designer shops of Thistle Street in the heart of Scotland's ancient capital, serving lunch, dinner - or why not pop in for afternoon coffee, perhaps after a visit to the nearby Henderson Gallery?

Open seven days from noon, the bistro prides itself on serving the very best contemporary vegetarian cuisine, wherever possible using locally-sourced, seasonal and organic ingredients.

Head Chef Barry Baker and his talented team strive constantly to maintain Henderson's pre-eminent position as Scotland's legendary vegetarian restaurant; the bistro boasts an unrivalled selection of carefully chosen organic wines; and our friendly and attentive staff promise to make every occasion special.

The romantic candlelit atmosphere makes the bistro the ideal location for hosting small and intimate gatherings: it can accommodate up to 50 people for a standing reception, or up to 30 seated.
