This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

This contemporary expression of Henderson’s brings decades of vegetarian cooking know-how into bright, new, upbeat surroundings at Holyrood. As an off-shoot of this Edinburgh culinary institution, there is a reputation to maintain here, as well as a fresh energy and a laid-back but progressive identity that clearly has a wide appeal. The eclectic mix of tweed upholstery, brightly coloured chairs and reclaimed wooden panels on the walls reflects a similarly varied customer base from professionals behind laptops and groups of students to young families. A recognisably accomplished salad bar makes for a creative pick-and-mix accompaniment to potato croquettes or a focaccia pizza and hits the spot in Henderson’s time-honoured fashion. The menu includes tried and tested meat-free recipes as well as options exclusive to this Holyrood branch, such as a beetroot and hummus wrap, and everything is, of course, organic and homemade with vegan and gluten-free options.
