Playhouse was our choice just because we were staying very near to it in Edinburgh . However the bear was expectedly good but the food specially the vegetarian lasagne was a very pleasant surprise . The chicken burger was very tender and light and the...More
The Edinburgh Playhouse is a fantastic venue and very well run. All theatrical facilities are properly organised and those on the staff are friendly and helpful. We were part of a full-house crowd to see Scotland's premier funny word-smith and truly magnetic cynic, Frankie Boyle,...More
First time at this venue and we were shocked at the price of drinks and snacks - £6.90 for 2 bottles of diet drinks.
Getting down to the stalls isn’t easy if you have mobility issues, we both use walking sticks and the amount of...More
We went to see a comedian; but we have been to the venue a few times. We love it. We were in the circle with good views. The stairs are very steep; ypu always get ushered to your seat. Bar is expensive but it Edinburgh.
We went to see The Band here on its final night, my wife had booked seats for this as soon as the tv programme had ended and it turned out to be one of the worst places to sit. The last 3 rows of the...More
Bought tickets on the day, wee bit expensive, but it is a fabulous show. Really enjoyed it, and highly recommend to those of a certain age!!!! who liked Take That first time round, and to those who love them after the "comeback".... Theatre is good,...More
This theatre is lovely and the stalls offer great views of the stage.
It was so warm inside though so you will need an ice cream at he interval.
The bar gets extremely busy at half time so try to avoid if you can.
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighborhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicenter Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of
Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.

I didn’t have champagne?, nor did i book the directors box - not sure if you have commented on the right review. I had cocktails before the play in slug & lettuce across from the playhouse?. And just normal seating also.
