Established in 1962, Henderson's was a popular vegetarian restaurant offering a good selection of buffet style vegetarian and vegan food in its New Town basement home.

The restaurant was the UK's longest-running vegetarian restaurant when it announced in June 2020 that it would be permanently closed after Coronavirus restrictions lifted. 

Owner Catherine Home, whose mother Janet started the pioneering, family enterprise, said that the business was too deep in debt to continue.

The restaurant was renowned for its wholesome veggie meals, at reasonable prices, in an informal setting.

Henderson's also had a deli shop and bakery above, and a bistro just around the corner on Thistle Street.
