Provenance is at the centre of the Chop House offer and we use only the finest beef sourced from artisan suppliers across Scotland.
The meat is dry aged for up to 90 days to add flavour and increase tenderness then the beef cooked on a charcoal grill, specially designed to give a subtle smoky flavour. Our fantastic food offering is matched by an extensive wine list from around the world and exceptional cocktail list. Open Mon - Fri for dinner, Sat & Sun for lunch, dinner and Sunday roast!

    We have regularly dine at chop house. There was a group of so called women sat at the side of us who were loud rude and were using foul language in front of our children. The staff did nothing to ask them to tone their behaviour down.

    Ordered our food and waited almost an hour to be served anything at all. To be fair, the staff did apologise - apparently our server should have told us that the chicken would take 40 mins + to be cooked, but she had not. Therefore we were sitting wondering why things were taking so long. The steak was reasonably good but not exceptional. The mash with gravy was really poor - unappetising and flavourless. Cocktails and wine were nicely served. I probably wouldn’t return as the service (and communication) was objectively poor. Food was ok, but there are definitely far better steakhouses in the city. Finally, when I booked the table I made a note that we were celebrating a special birthday but there was no reference to this at all (no candle in a dessert, or even a ‘happy birthday’ from staff). What actually happened is that we were given a pretty bad table in the very corner of the downstairs basement.

    Absolutely amazing experience here! The steak sourdough with sides of onion rings and mac n cheese were extraordinary. The staff members really made our visit special too. This is a must visit for outstanding cocktails, exceptional environment and an incredible service. I would recommend this as a must visit and somewhere we try to visit at least once a month.

    No where near as good as it has been. Meat was fatty and chewy. Asked for thin chips and recieved things that resembled crispy rice noodles. That could have been explained better. Will not be back

    The food was absolutely outstanding; service was superb. We were sat downstairs, which was quite empty, but my companions cannot manage the banquette style seating upstairs (this had been requested on the reservation). A touch lacking in atmosphere, if one is being fussy, but that was self inflicted.

    My boyfriend and I came for Valentine’s Day, we shared a côte de bœuf which was very tender and tasty, I didn’t even need to add any sauce, we asked for blue and it was perfectly cooked, starters were oysters and mussels which was also great, sides were good, staff was nice, very good dinner.

    Had really good expectations heading into for the meal, however was really disappointed by the whole experience. The steak was bland, not cooked to liking and accompanying sauce was very watery and didn't provide anything in terms of flavour or texture. Sides came 15 minutes after the steak, and I had already finished the steak by this time. Service seemed all over the place, took 5/10 minutes to get a menu. Final bill came to £98, for 1 starter, 2 small steaks, 2 sides and a bottle of water. In my opinion extremely bad value for money. Overall, it is overpriced, average food and strange service. Won't be back and would urge any one unsure to not waste your time.

    Food was overpriced for what it actually was, a tiny side of raw in the middle chips was nearly £6. The place was eerily quiet especially for valentine’s day.

    We booked a table for 630, when we arrived it was quiet. We were asked to stand at the bar to be seated. We waited about 10 mins, for what I’m not sure as it was quiet. We were sat down and given menus and to be told about 5/6 things were sold out. I then asked about the Sunday roast menu, and then was told this was sold out! Shame when one of us wanted that! About 25 mins later, our drink order was taken. They arrived fairly quickly. Another ten mins or so, our food order taken. A side of mac n cheese was ordered with this. Our food arrived, and then we were told there was no Mac and cheese, disappointing when we sat for best part of an hour and nobody said this. We asked for a free drink or another side and they said they would see what they could do and asked what we wanted. I asked for ketchup and mayo this took another 5 mins to come. There were three burgers on our order and all the brioche buns were dry and hard. When we got the bill the mac n cheese was still on the bill. Took a while to pay the bill Too. We had a voucher towards the bill and we were glad as we felt for the service and food and overall experience this was a very overpriced place. Disappointed as have heard so many good things but we will not be back. There was another table that were not happy with their food at the same time we were in.

    Place has really gone down hill past couple of years. It’s very local to us and we like the ambiance so we thought we would give it one last try. Waited an hour for our food to arrive and when it did the monkfish was very stale and tasteless. Steak was good but even the fries were undercooked. Sadly we won’t be back.

    Lovely food, steak was cooked perfectly, my only gripe would be there wasn’t quite enough sauce to go with the steak. All sides to the steak are sold separately between 2 of us we had 3 sides they were delicious and were plenty for us. I then had left a note on the reservation saying it was my partners birthday and with the dessert we ordered to share they popped some candles in and sang happy birthday - waiting on staff went above and beyond and couldn’t do enough ☺️

    Disappointed by this experience. Service was poor - we had to ask for everything twice (water, condiments, the bill), and fresh chips as the ones we were given were cold. This seemed to be due to understaffing rather than any individual. The steak was OK, a bit chewy not butter soft as I would expect at a steak specialist restaurant. The prawn tempura was overly salted. The ribs were pretty tasty. Will not return.

    Everything was good but we were double charged for the beer. I assume it was my fault because I didn’t check thinking that the fact that we paid at the bar while waiting for the table was taken into account.

    Overall very good, however fillet steak was quite dry, not juicy as you might expect for £39! Also, chips didn’t taste homemade instead were probably out of a packet and were pretty tasteless and dry instead of crispy and nice. Sorry Chophouse but for value for money you failed on quality. Service was excellent though .

    I don’t like being rushed but 2 hours 20 mins for 2 courses was painful. We gave up on desert. 250gm fillet must have shrunk by half during cooking and the mac and cheese was dry and mushy. Everything else ok but not great value for money.

    Good food and pleasant staff, though not enough of them, were let down by a long wait for our food. After about 20 minutes I had to ask if we could order drinks. Our food arrived 1hr 10 minutes after our arrival which is a ridiculous time to have to wait. This is not the first time this has happened as I was there at the end of October on a quiet Monday night when the restaurant was not busy and again had to wait an unacceptable time for food. I will not be back as I’m not prepared to wait this long again and there are many other local restaurants that I can visit.

    Lovely setting but we went for the ‘kids eat free’ January offer. Didn’t seem a great set up for kids with high tables, waitress looked put out that we had brought children. Children’s chicken came out raw (completely raw not just a little pink!). Waitress seemed annoyed we were sending back, didn’t feel there was a proper apology. Adult food was great but order was wrong (couldn’t deal with the annoyed waitress to get it corrected! A little disappointing for what was supposed to be a treat :(

    I realise as a vegetarian that the Chop House isn’t the place I should be leaving a review, but I went with my three favourite carnivores! Honestly, the non meat choices were limited to one starter and one main, and even that was 99% rocket and 1% gnocchi. The broccoli was coated in too much chilli to be edible. But the steaks were apparently pretty good.

    Place was pretty empty however music was being played that was loud and not in keeping with the environment. It sounded like hardcore dance. Food was okay, nothing special. Large lump of unmelted cheese in my Mac & Cheese. Waiters didn’t seem to communicate so was being asked the same things twice however they were friendly enough. Overall experience just lacking compared to other Chop House restaurants we have been to. Wouldn’t return.
