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.
Very good food and the service was great
Loved the vegetarian options! Wonder service and food!!
Friendly staff Service a little slow but not an issue
Starter specials were delicious (we had one of each) but very small portions for the price. The suggested accompanying wine at £16.95 for a 125ml glass works out at £100 per bottle of wine - yikes guys. We both had the duck special which sadly was cooked right through, not a patch of pink. Tasty, but not better than other restaurants who would have cooked it better and charged a lot less. Service was excellent. Our little light didn’t work and although the waiter noticed, the bulb wasn’t replaced. Overall, we felt that the experience was definitely not value for money (dinner cost us £178 for 2 and we were rushed out of our table at 9.30) and we won’t be back - sorry.
Lovely staff, beautiful space, well executed dishes
Fantastic food and waitress extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.
Hi there. Your place was recommended to us by our Airbnb host and another local. Our first night we had fun in the Wee Pub so we made reservations for the Braserrie the second evening. I received a confirmation email yet the host was having trouble finding it when we arrived and had a bit of an attitude about it which was off putting. We were finally taken upstairs when he called up there and our server was lovely! She even dashed over to Innis and Gunn to get my husband his beer! The meal was quite tasty. Salmon was great but a tiny portion. The special mackerel appy was excellent. We had some after dinner drinks downstairs which was also great and all of your bartenders are great!
The quality if the Brasserie food was poor The Fries were reheated and very hard The rice was like soup
Wonderful service. Although very busy, our server was efficient, polite and friendly. Delicious food too!
Welcoming and relaxed lunch. Food very good.
The whole evening was great. The food was excellent. The icing on the cake would have been if the waiter had recognised (with a small gesture) that it was our birthday, (twin sisters) as we told him as soon as we sat down - an opportunity to really “wow” the customer missed!
the staff were very helpful and the fact that they have a dog friendly section was great, they were vary accommodating. Food was great and we had a lovely family lunch, also catered for gluten free
Very friendly helpful staff, menu always interesting and varied. Food beautifully presented and very tasty. Try to eat here every time I visit Glasgow.
Had a wonderful afternoon with my friend having lunch. Not only was the service and setting relaxing, the added atmosphere of the jazz just made it perfect. We will definitely be back with our with our friends to share our experience. Thank you once again. 😀
Food and service so good we ate here twice during our visit to Glasgow, for my husband’s birthday and our anniversary. Loved the fish plate and the haggis appetizer!
Website booking easy. Polite, friendly welcome. Our server quick, chatty and knowledgeable on the dishes. Cheerful and also didn't hover. Menu content and the food itself perfect Brasserie food....(vegetarian haggis really good). Wine recommendation by server hit the spot, and bill for two, for nearly 2 hours very reasonable...yes it's keeping it's reputation no problem at all.......
Another very enjoyable evening at the Chip!
Great evening as usual but the stand out of the night was our waitress who was both attentive and knowledgable. Very envious of her fluent French as she dealt with a neighbouring table too!
We have always enjoyed going here, the Brasserie is a great place for dinner. Very relaxing and the food was fantastic.
As a visitor to Glasgow this was a great venue for an evening meal
Always a treat to eat here!Happy to say that the 6 friends who I took for their first visit felt exactly the same!
We had a great evening thank you . Our waitress was lovely.
The brassiere has a beautiful atmosphere, coupled with great food, beautiful drinks and good company (not included!) makes for a great evening.
On dreamy Ashton Lane, the Ubiquitous Chip has a great upstairs room for larger groups and a menu that focuses on providing a small selection of high quality dishes. Really impressed with the calm demeanour of the staff and the ease of communication prior to our event.
