Chop House launches in Edinburgh

Chop House, a bar and butchery, has opened at Edinburgh's Waverley Arches, a new leisure and retail quarter in the city's Market Street, Old Town.

The 60-cover restaurant will be the second location for the brand, which operates a casual-dining restaurant in Leith.

Set within a C-listed brickwork arch, close to Waverley Railway Station, Chop House Market Street will offer a cocktail bar and a restaurant with an open-flame charcoal grill across two floors.

Chop House managing director, Mark Fraser, said: "Being part of such a prestigious development is hugely exciting for our new restaurant. The location is second to none and we are confident that the Arches will establish themselves as a key destination within the city centre. We are really excited about the interior of the building as we are creating a very special environment which makes the most of its unique location."

The Chop House group also operates Edinburgh venues Monteiths, Sygn and the WestRoom.

The Waverley Arches is a £15m project involving the renovation of a row of 19 Victorian arches.

Other tenants at Waverley Arches include Vino, Gannet & Guga, Elk and Wolf, Juice Warrior, Lauren Gollan Academy of Make-Up Artistry, Baba Budan, Mudo Art, Tempo Tea Bar and 6 Yard Box.

Clive Wilding, New Waverley's project director said: "This is yet another brilliant addition to the Arches which is now providing a genuine buzz around the city. The Arches provide something completely different, accommodating some of the most exciting new independent operators to be found anywhere in the UK."
