Best of British beef, butchered & dry-aged in house and cooked over an open flame charcoal grill. Chop House is an innovative blend of classic British steakhouse and cocktail bar brought to you by the team behind Monteiths & the White Horse Oyster Bar. 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 butchered on site and dry aged for up to 90 days to add flavour, increase tenderness then the beef cooked on an open flame 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 lunch and dinner, Sat & Sun for weekend breakfast, lunch and Sunday roast! There is another Chop House in Leith & Bruntsfield Edinburgh.

First time in and my only disappointment was that I didn’t find this place earlier. If you like your steak medium rare with a little blood the order rare. Else this was perfect.

Expected more from the meat quality perspective, had enjoyed more flavoursome meats elsewhere in Scotland. Very pricey considering meats just came on their own & all vegetables & accompaniments were charged separately. One steak needed returning to the kitchen as arrived undercooked as a medium/well done request, poor for a restaurant specialising in steaks

The food was delicious and we enjoyed the predi net cocktails. However we were seated downstairs in a booth and originally to be seated at the door. We requested to be moved and we were moved. The ocasion was to celebrate our friend’s sixtieth birthday and it would have been nicer to sit at a table upstairs. When we booked this was mentioned. The booth table meant that all the dishes ordered could hardly fit on the table. Having said this I would go back as the food was really good

Food was amazing - oysters and Scotch Egg were superb as was the rib-eye. Only complaint was that the staff were not terribly knowledgeable about the food and had to keep going back to ask questions. They were however, very friendly and personable but management needs to do a better job of training staff on the nuances of the menu.

We have been to The Chophouse on a number of occasions and have enjoyed it every time. The surroundings in each unit are unique. Leith and Market street are personal favourites due to connections in my personal family history. The service is slick and not intrusive. Although it is not exactly cheap the product is of great quality therefore delivers value in my opinion. We took the opportunity to take advantage of the Wednesday corkage scheme. This was not my reason for booking but it is a little added bonus which meant we spent more on higher ticket steak. I am not a massive fan of craft beers but can report the pilsner was great.
This is a fantastic place for any occasion.

Fantastic starters Steak and drinks and sides. Party of 5, 3 adults 2 kids. Between us we had the aged sirloin, highland sirloin and a fillet. All were perfectly cooked and incredibly Flaversome. The scallop and pig cheek staters were also exceptional, the battered prawns falling a bit short but still awesome. For the kids, there was sausage and chips and an excellent burger. We had 4 different cocktails which were all well made. It’s always a sign of a good meal when you’re thinking of when you can return before even leaving the table.

Looked for a restaurant on line while visiting Edinburgh and came across the 'Chop House & Butchery', had good reviews and menu sounded appealing. Arrived a little early than we had advised (20mins), but table was ready within a few minutes of arriving. The Sunday lunch was very tasty and the Steak Sourdough was also very good. Good selection of wines to accompany any dish.

Myself and my partner went to Chop House during our stay for the Fringe. When we arrived, there was a 30 minute delay on our table however this was handled with the upmost professionalism. Our host apologised profusely for the delay (we had booked a month in advance and it was my partners birthday dinner) and did his best to hurry the process always, checking in on us on a warm and caring manner. The entire night we were taken care of extremely well and what could have added a sour element to the evening just proved how wonderful the service in Chop House is! The food was incredible- the most tender fillet steaks and gorgeous (perfect temperature), Merlot and AMAZING espresso martinis. A big thank you to our host, his name escapes me but he was just wonderful. 11/10 - Will we definitely be back!

Went for Sunday lunch and the roast beef was fantastic. My friend had the chicken bun which was a huge portion but very tasty! Also had a side of the mac cheese which was great.

Service was speedy and efficient with a smile.

Would highly recommend it and much easier to get a table than my experience of trying for dinner

Excellent cuts of meat, cooked and seasoned to perfection (the taste of this char-grilled meat is outstanding), nice staff, good selection of wine. Just a little bit overpriced, due to the weight of the cut with the bone, that you can't really check because you are not bringing with you a scale !
(Cut for sharing : 900gr = £72, without the bone, about 200gr less of meat, so 700gr to share).

My husbands steak was lovely unfortunately mine was tough and I struggled to cut it. The staff were very apologetic and said they would speak to their supplier. This was fine but felt we were rushed afterwords. We didn't get the chance to order dessert or coffee, after the plates were cleared they came over with the bill. I felt they couldn't wait to get us out.

After hearing people rave about chop house we were a bit disappointed to be honest! I am pregnant so when you eat steak it has to be really well done so I was going to choose either the chicken or veg option! I was disappointed to find out on arrival that they only thing they had left on menu was the steak at 4:45pm I was surprised at this as was still early in the day! I didn’t really enjoy the food and thought that was because I had to have it well done but my husband didn’t enjoy his either! Also the tables are really close together so it did feel like you were dining with the people next to you! I must say though the staff are GREAT as they knew it was our anniversary they brought us up little glasses of champers however when barmaid noticed I was pregnant she took mine away and made me a mocktail which was so kind - staff were really nice!

Food was very over-priced. Service was slow. There were four of us and not one of us ate our dinner, complained as all of our steaks weren’t cooked how we asked and weren’t refunded anything. There isn’t much variety on the menu. Would not recommend this to anyone.

Food was amazing, service a little slow but we weren’t in a rush. Music FAR too loud and couldn’t hear a word our server was saying. Did ask 3 times if they could turn it down, but they didn’t. The mac cheese was dry and not their usual standard. Also, it was hubby’s birthday but they made no effort. When I booked, I said it was a special occasion and that it was his birthday. We will be back as the food is amazing. Just needing a few tweaks.
