Mark Fraser and Michael Spink have opened the Leith Chop House on Constitution Street in Edinburgh. The latest addition to the Compass Group, which includes Edinburgh outlets Sygn, Monteiths and The WestRoom, offers a casual dining steakhouse experience.

Michael Spink comments, “We wanted to go back to basics and create a classic British steakhouse where the ingredients take centre stage, so sourcing the very best beef is crucial for us at the Chop House.” Mark Fraser added, “The Chop House has been an exciting project. From sourcing the best beef, to dry-aging and butchering it in house and cooking it over open coal, we’re committed to serving the best steak in the city.”

The core of the menu will be prime cuts of beef such as fillet, sirloin and rump with large sharing cuts such as chateaubriand and porterhouse also available. The team has also brewed a Chop House Pale Ale created to their own recipe at Drygate brewery in Glasgow.

Mark concludes, “The businesses we run are a real extension of who we are and what we love. In our twenties it was all about late nights and boozing and the bars reflected that. As you get older it’s much more about great food and wine. Chop House will provide that.”
