About Ubiquitous Chip Brasserie
The Chip was opened by Ronnie Clydesdale on the 11th January 1971, at a time when Scottish cuisine was confined solely to the home. Chefs of the day knew only Italian or French cooking, and if you wanted to eat out in Glasgow your choice was limited.
In the early years, to suggest that Scotland had a legitimate unique cuisine was an anathema. We had a vision to bring back Scottish cuisine, and to become the best place to eat in Glasgow.
From day one The Chip drew its inspiration from regional Scottish dishes. Aunties, grannies and even folklore were a constant source of influence. Some thought us daft, and saw eating out for Glasgow and Scottish cuisine preposterous. Yet, some 40 years on Ronnie’s faith in our national cuisine has been embraced across the country, and Scottish produce is deservedly acclaimed as some of the best in the world.
We are now one of the best places to eat out in Glasgow. But we will never settle, and will constantly strive to improve our food, fresh ingredients and atmosphere.
Continually inspired by Scotland’s larder, The Chip has grown to become something of a Glasgow icon. Our courtyard dining room is one of the most endearing magical spaces to eat out in the area. A fine dining menu is on offer in the restaurant and a lighter brasserie menu in the various bars, mezzanine and roof terrace.
As one of the best restaurants in Glasgow we have picked up a thing or two over the years. Throughout the year our menus are dictated by the seasons. Over the decades we have built up a network of specialist suppliers who share our love of food. For locals this ethos has made The Chip a veritable institution and, for many, their chosen place for eating out.
The Ubiquitous Chip is no stranger to awards, but we never take them for granted. We’ve been awarded the Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year for Scotland 2013 and most recently we were awarded Condé Nast Traveller Gold Standard 2014. 2011 saw Ingr3dients nominated for 5 various Cultural and Experiential categories at the Scottish and UK Events Awards, and the Arts & Business Scotland Awards. The late Ronnie himself was recognised by his peers with the CIS lifetime achievement award.
For a memorable dining experience, come down and see why we call The Chip one of the best places to eat out in Glasgow.
I had booked a table for one, then found myself with two friends, and was very happily surprised that all three of us could get in on my booking. We were made very welcome, and the meal was as usual delicious and memorable..
Lovely food and atmosphere.
Great atmosphere. Food was not bad, but exceptional. Unfortunate that service was not good. it was difficult to get any attention, to order and even to get the bill.
Excellent food. Mediocre service.
Enjoyed the experience OK. menu was not really to our taste so we had a limited choice. Dessert of carrot cake was quite poor, portion size was very small for vthe price charged. we will maybe try the restaurant next time but I'll che knot the menu beforehand
Fantastic service, would definately come back!
The restaurant was fully booked on Mothers Day but luckily we managed to book a table in the Brasserie. We had never eaten in the Brasserie before but it was just as lovely. Staff were great as usual.
Was very confusing on arrival - thought we would be downstairs, but in fact were upstairs, different menu - was not clear when I booked this by email. I also asked for champagne to be taken to table on arrival , this was forgotten about. Seemed each thing we asked, was not possible/staff had to ask if it would be okay, not really going out of their way to help. Disappointing to be honest. food was nice but service spoiled my mothers day lunch with my Mum I am afraid.
