‘Meet Me At Hendersons’ – a history of vegetarian food in Britain

I am always fascinated when discovering the history of vegetarians in the UK.

Although living a meat-free life might seem like a relatively recent phenomenon in the UK, the history of vegetarians goes back many generations.

I spotted this interesting article in ‘The Independent’ about a restaurant called Henderson’s in Edinburgh.

Did you know Henderson’s is the oldest veggie restaurant in the UK?

Take a look and find out more about this fascinating place. I want to go there!

The Independent – When Henderson’s first opened, meat-free meals were as radical as mini skirts. Fifty years on, the UK’s oldest veggie restaurant is an Edinburgh institution.
