In an emotional post on Facebook the restaurant’s owners wrote: “Chop House has been part of the Leith landscape since 2015, but all good things must come to an end.

“In order to concentrate on our other restaurants, we have decided to leave our Constitution Street branch. We've loved being in Leith, making many friends and some fantastic memories.

“You can still enjoy all your Chop House favourites at our other two sites, in Market Street and in Bruntsfield.

“Our Leith restaurant will host its final day of service on Sunday 25th February, and we wish our new resident all the very best – keep an eye on this space! Gift vouchers can be used at Market Street or Bruntsfield and we hope to see you at either one of these restaurants soon.”

Chop House’s loyal customers reacted to the news with sadness.“One regular wrote on Facebook: “Big date night place for us, thanks for the good food and memories. Gutted another Leith date night spot is gone”.

Another customer said: “Absolutely gutted that you’re closing this venue. Truly my favourite place in Scotland”.

A third wrote: “Have loved coming to the OG Chop House since it opened. Date nights, anniversaries and our first night out after having our daughter. Will miss this setting but look forward to venturing to Market Street or Bruntsfield to spend our Christmas voucher soon!”
