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.
Great treat, brill flavours!
Food was great although small portions.
Loved the vegan menu, fantastic. Possibly could be offered rather than asking for it.
Wonderful locally sourced Scottish food. A lovely variety of flavours and textures. Service friendly. Coffee delicious. Wonderful ambience.
Second visit for special occasion. Food service and setting so lovely. Will be back again very soon ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Loved it! We are now all haggis fans! Thank you x
I’ve eaten hear three times and always good. Great atmosphere.
Really good restaurant and visited a few times. Last night my wife selected langoustines as a special from the menu as a main course. She was served 5 half langoustines at £17.95. The langoustines were very slim with little seafood content. Her dinner was over quickly and spoilt her night out. For a restaurant of this calibre I thought the portion size was ridiculous. Poor.
I love this place. An amazing dining experience every time.
Flavoursome food, well cooked and well presented by pleasant staff
Thoroughly enjoyed our light lunch. Excellent service, food and ambience.
The bramble sorbet was amazing!!
Our waitress was absolutely outstanding and the whole evening was excellent. If I am ever in Glasgow again I will definitely be back. Thank you for a great eating experience.
Excellent Sunday lunch in the Brasserie, informal and very good service. Quiet and relaxed bar, sitting in the sun by the window with the paper to read before lunch. Spot on.
Wonderful lunch. Great atmosphere, food and service. Will definitely return
Many thanks, enjoyed our evening meal in the Brasserie.
The atmosphere of the restaurant is beautiful, lots of plants and lights with an overall unique layout. The service I received was some of the friendliest and most attentive. My only complaint is that the food was a little pricey. In my opinion, though, it’s worth a little extra for the friendly service and creative environment!
Everything ok! Nice place, good food, great ambience and service!
The service was fantastic, all the staff were really attentive despite us being in an awkward area for them to get too. They were informative on the food and really friendly. The food was absolutely amazing, myself and my partner shared each of the dishes we had ordered because we kept getting food envy. Would definitely recommend.
Very enjoyable evening.
Excellent quality of food and service Will return soon😀
As an ex-restaurateur I was very impressed!
Back in Glasgow after 20years absence, brought 3 newbies to the UC which did not disappoint. We all had the duck pate followed by 2 fillet steaks, one rib eye and chicken - all were prepared as requested and piping hot. Wine waiter was great and we had a really lovely evening. Thank you - am hoping it wont be 20years before my next visit :)
