Disappointing visit with friends. Salads are great and varied but the mains are very variable in taste and frequently not hot and poorly prepared. I opted for their ‘light lunch ‘ which was half portion of vegetarian lasagne and 2 salads. I was given a...More

Dined alone the evening before a work appointment and was made to feel very welcome. The veggie (perhaps vegan?) haggis was amazing and the chocolate tart was also nice. Very friendly staff and a lovely cosy atmosphere.

I went here for dinner last night with my partner. We both had vegan haggis which came with a delicious gravy, mash and greens. The desserts were lovely too. Good sized portions, decent value and friendly staff. Would definitely go again.

Second visit to Henderson's, great choice of lunches, it was busy (half term) so we had to queue a short while but the service is quick and friendly. Sweet potato and coconut soup to die for, served with bread, £4.50. Vegan carrot cake also £4.50...More

Goats cheese and beetroot starter was excellent. Main ("One Pot Special") was potatoes and a very few mushrooms in a tomato sauce, accompanied by brown rice and a greasy poppadum - edible, but too heavy on the carbs and overpriced for what it was. The...More

As usual, the food was very nice. Today I was adventurous and had the vegan haggis, neeps and tatties. It was tasty - I'm generally a bit afraid of "meaty" dishes because I don't actually like the taste of meat but the haggis was made...More

We both really enjoyed Hendersons in the past and what a disappointment. The food was tired looking and my husband's lasagna was dried out and must have been lying around for ages. My haggis was over salted. It was expensive in our opinion. The restaurant...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
