Our response

From locating their first site in Leith, we then reimagined a traditional ale house, serving the very best cuts of meat and fish. Using honest yet elegant materials, we crafted a luxurious, welcoming dining experience, to be as comfortable for sipping late cocktails as indulging in a Sunday lunch with friends.

We created the name and the brand, ensuring that this identity was expressed at numerous levels – from pattern details on the bar front, through to the marque, the menu design and everything about how the brand communicates. We created the interior and architectural details, managing all aspects of the project through to full implementation.

We have partnered with the client as this chain has grown from one to three restaurants – each with their different layouts and challenges – to ensure each Chop House has its own unique experience. We have also developed the Compass Groups other sites, the White Horse and Monteiths.
