About us

As plant-based dining becomes more popular, opening this concept was a way for us to evolve the Erpingham house brand, and in doing so ensure we were able to reflect the area we are in. Edinburgh has a unique, creative & vibrant energy we wanted to capture with the approach, so we’ve developed our initial concept & have created something new for the city. With a strong plant-based heritage, Erpingham House Edinburgh aims to help further the world’s adoption of more plant-based foods, and as a result a more conscious lifestyle.
