“Veganism is not a sacrifice – it is a joy.” – Gary L. Francione

There was a time when Edinburgh only had one vegan restaurant, today nearly every menu has a couple of vegan options on it. Here are some of our favourite vegan places to eat.

Hendersons : Mon - Sun : 12 - 10pm

Hendersons award-winning vegetarian and vegan restaurant Edinburgh, one of Scotland's most famous vegetarian restaurants. Hendersons is something of an institution in Edinburgh. It was Scotland's longest running vegetarian restaurant. Sadly it had to close it's doors in 2020 but has now reopened and is better than ever.

Soul Vegan : Mon : Closed, Tue: 5 - 9:30 pm, Wed, Thu & Sun : 12- 3pm, 5 - 9:30pm, Fri - Sat : 12- 3pm, 5 - 9:30pm

Soul Vegan is a Malaysian vegan restaurant on West Richmond Street. Friendly staff and lovely atmosphere, try one of the best vegan dining experience in Edinburgh. Booking a table in advance is recommended.

David Bann : Mon - Thu : 12 – 10pm, Fri : 12 - 10:30, Sat : 11am – 10:30pm, Sun 11am – 10pm

David Bann is one of the top vegetarian chefs in the country.  Because of this he has gained a great reputation for top end vegetarian cuisine.  Voted one of the top three vegetarian restaurants in the country it is a must visit for nouvelle dinning.  The restaurant offers a wide variety of food.  They take inspiration from across the world.  We recommend a visit here for special occasions such as birthdays.  The restaurant is on St Mary's St very close to where we run our whisky tour.

Amusing stroll in Edinburgh. Lovely tour, Ben being a hilarious guide, telling things you don't find in a tourist book, interesting stories, showing hidden gems. Perfect, thanks.

Fantastic Tour, Angus gave us a tour of the museum. It was fantastic! Literally the only way to get a real appreciation of the history in the museum.
