About Chop House Market Street
British beef and cocktails in The Arches
Following on from the success of Leith’s Chop House, this second branch opened in the summer of 2016 in a C-listed brickwork arch in the New Waverley project on East Market Street. Laid out over two floors, it features a staircase and hanging booth seating, both custom-made from steel.
Along with highlighted architectural details of the brickwork, these give Chop House a chic post industrial feel. As well as the vibrant restaurant, the new Chop House boasts an impressive bar – the place to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink, or to spend an evening with friends sampling carefully-selected craft beers and bespoke seasonal cocktails.
Open flame charcoal grilled beef
British beef, butchered in-house, dry-aged on-site for up to 90 days and cooked over an open-flame charcoal grill is at the heart of the Chop House offer. Sociable dining is central to the experience with large sharing steaks such as Chateaubriand, bone-in rib and Porterhouse taking centre stage. Prime cuts such as fillet, sirloin and rump also feature on the menu alongside dishes such as steak burgers, lobster and charred lamb chops. A weekend brunch menu has many fans as do the Sunday roast beef.
