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.
This was our first visit and unfortunately was not a good experience. We booked our table for 3 people at 8.45pm and were not able to order until 9.25pm as the kitchen were not ready. We were left waiting and had to call over a staff member twice before this was explained. It would have been nicer to be allowed to order but informed there would be a wait because of a larger table.
Love every visit favourite place!
Inventive menu, beautifully cooked food, personable staff, slightly too generous portions!
Great atmos and top notch food and drink. Friendly service although a bit slow
What amazingly friendly and helpful staff
Good food good atmosphere had a great day
The waiter being trained was delightful. Can’t say the same for the waitress ding the training who was frosty and not friendly. The two starters were outstanding. Haggis and the mussels. The main was cod and rather forgettable. Much better vibe and food at the crab shack and at the ox and finch.
Outstanding and focused menu; mussels a standout as was salmon and dukes and walnut cake app.
To be honest everything was perfect except the beef. I found it very tender but a little tasteless. That's why I'm a little disappointed. But the chips, the whisky sauce and the Haggis were delicious.
Very delicious....as usual!
Amazing, fresh and interesting take on modern Scottish cuisine, all staff were genuinely lovely, atmosphere totally unique, everything is so high quality but doesn’t feel at all pretentious, brilliant place, so highly recommend!
Excellent food & wine and wonderful service in a very relaxed setting.
Great service, good timing, great food and nice atmosphere to enjoy the night. Thank you
Menu was very limited. Wine overpriced. Food was ok but can get just as good for less in many other places. Seating, napkins more like a fast food place. Very noisy, difficult to talk. Fist time back for a few years, £250 for four people ! Don’t mind paying that for a great experience. But this was not ! Disappointed !
we arrived at 7.00pm and left at midnight which says something !
Excellent food service & atmosphere
Everything was superb as usual
Awesome servers, food and setting. The food took a long time to come, that would be my only negative. But we enjoyed it and loved our waitress.
My wife and I came to the Chip for a lunch to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I'd never been to the Chip before, but we will definitely be back. The staff were faultless - friendly, informed and engaged. The food was delightful - a real breadth of choice. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, please pass out praise on to the staff.
A lovely lunch
See my review on trip advisor. 5 stars simply isn't enough I asked the Parisian waitress to say to the chef that for 30 years, when ever I am asked what my favourite food was I have said the octopus I had in Portugal. And today it has been surpassed. I have never tasted anything so good in my life. It was cooked in a perfectly thought amount of garlic and I think truffle. I dont know if you've ever had the experience where the inside back of your cheeks about where your jaw turns up, quiver in almost orgasmic delight at the flavours you are experiencing
Great as always
Excellent dinner in the Brasserie. Consistently one of my favourite restaurants in Glasgow
Fantastic service, delicious food, well catered for with a dietary requirement.
