First Review by craigmc

One or two vegan options - Edit

The Filmhouse is a great venue, and the cafe-bar has a pleasant atmosphere and good service. The vegan options aren't very extensive - I had a slightly bland curry - but they had a couple of options. Not the best place to come for a vegan, but you won't go hungry.

Decent vegan options but nothing special - Edit

If you go to the counter and ask, the staff will be able to show you a separate vegan menu. It doesn't have a huge range of options and they're pretty basic (soup, hummus, etc), but the food is pretty good and it's convenient to get something to eat before a film.

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Convenient for seeing a film, Nice surroundings

Cons: Limited, basic vegan options

Great for a snack before a show - Edit

I went there for dessert before a movie and had a nice chocolate orange slice (like a Tiffin). They had several vegan options and a separate vegan menu, which looked like it would be a good (but not amazing) place to have dinner before a show. The atmosphere was retro and homey - it had an independent feel to it and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Pros: Friendly staff, Fun atmosphere, Several vegan options

decent selection - Edit

In days before happy cow and the growth of veggie restaurants, the filmhouse was a staple eatery in edinburgh. About a third of the menu is veggie, aand do offer some vegan options, and if you ask at the bar, they will do as much as possible to help you.

The food is okay, like many others, offering various options from around the world, never fantastic but never poor. Its a nice big space and a good option if you have kids.

Also a great cinema.

Pros: location, staff

Cons: a little expensive, meat
