Bijou Edinburgh bistro The Little Chartroom is to turn its pop-up location on the Scottish capital's Portobello Prom into a permanent site.

The outdoor street food spot, which launched back in August​, has been a 'huge success' according to chef-patron Roberta Hall.

As a result The Little Chartroom on the Prom has now signed a two-year lease, and had canopies installed to keep customers dry during the colder and wetter winter months.

Serving a weekly-changing barbecue takeaway menu, dishes include smoked venison sausage with mole sauce, celeriac ragout and crispy kale; and hot chocolate mousse with mascarpone, toffee apple and hazelnut.

“We’ve had the unit in Portobello for four months now and it has been a huge success,” says Hall, who opened The Little Chartroom with her husband Shaun McCarron in 2018.

“Portobello is always busy regardless of the weather, so it made sense for us to extend the lease.

“Not only have we garnered a loyal customer base on the Promenade but also having this outdoor space has provided some stability during this difficult time.

“We’ve been able to secure all jobs within the business off the back of it and continue to support our suppliers. We are really looking forward to be able to continue to serve our barbequed treats for years to come.”

The Little Chartroom, which currently remains closed as a result of the impact to trade caused by local Coronavirus restrictions, is ranked at Number 79​ on the UK’s Top 100 Restaurants List.
