The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Located in the heart of Leith, Chop House on Constitution Street is a great restaurant in a neighbourhood well-served by places to eat. In fact, quality ingredients, great service, a fantastic atmosphere and attractive interior almost have to be a given around The Shore, but what makes Chop House really stand out among tough competition is their beef: dry-aged in-house, full of flavour and made in Scotland. The classic choices of cut are all available, as well as sharing options like chateaubriand, with well-informed staff helping the undecided make the right decisions. There is a good range of sides, including lighter choices, or mac and cheese for the hungry (or greedy). The dessert menu is compact but tempting, and if you’re full after your steak the three luscious sorbets won’t disappoint.
