270-cover fish and chip shop to open in Edinburgh



A 270-cover fish and chip restaurant will open in Edinburgh next winter.


The Vittoria Group, which owns four Italian restaurants in the city, is bringing the eatery to Victoria Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town and putting its own take on the nation's favourite dish.

The 11,000 sq.ft restaurant aims to attract both international tourists and Edinburgh locals with an affordable menu that looks to celebrate fish and chip shop staples as well as putting a contemporary twists on classics. Fish burgers and cod dogs are expected to feature on the menu alongside classic chippy dishes such as pies, haggis and white pudding suppers. The menu will also boast several light options, all under ten pounds.

Deep-fried Mars bars with ice cream, salted caramel and chocolate sauce play on the Scottish chippy tradition of battered chocolate bars and are expected on the dessert menu alongside treats such as sticky toffee pudding and apple crumble pie. 

The restaurants design, meanwhile, will play on the chip shop theme with seating in beach-hut style booths and a nod to nautical style interiors complete with classic tongue and groove panelling, painted floorboards, galvanised metals and weathered paintwork.

The venue will open in Winter 2018 and will also feature two bars, serving a selection of premium spirits and gins from around Scotland, along with beach side themed cocktails, beers and ciders.

The three-floor World Heritage site building and former St John’s church had been used as a bookmaker and housed the popular Byzantium market and Khushi's Indian restaurant before a blaze in 2008.
