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.
A brilliant night! I brought visiting guests to give them a taste of Glasgow hospitality and the Chip did not fail to disappoint. Venison haunch was something very special indeed. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive. I can’t wait for my next dining experience at this Glasgow institution.
Venison haggis a bit stronger than the last time I had it but just a personal taste thing not a complaint
A wonderful experience from start to finish.
Great food and drink. The service was fantastic, friendly and funny.
Food, atmosphere, service all of a high standard. We had a lovely lunch here in the brasserie. We shall come again!
Excellent experience, with good service and food throughout.
We had a fabulous lunch upstairs in the brasserie on Saturday, we had a lovely waitress ( an American girl), who steered us in the right direction for exactly the type of meal we wanted as it was a beautiful day and we wanted something quite light. We all had mussels, some sharing platters and some fizz. It was perfect. Thank you.
A lovely meal but spoiled slightly by exceptionally slow service. Food was cooked to perfection!
Super brasserie. Recipes are original and delicious, service was attentive and fast. Will return.
Love this place. Restaurant and Brasserie. Worth the trip to Glasgow. Food is always delicious and atmosphere great
Staff were lovely made us feel v welcome
The night with opera was excellent. Unfortunately we couldn't hear a word the Master of Ceremonies said upstairs.
This was an opera in the Gods night which we thoroughly enjoyed in spite of the 2 women beside us who talked though every song. Service was very good but given we were told to sit at 6.30 , it was 7.30 before we were served any food, some lovely bread.
Excellent evening again at the chip.
Great food , service and atmosphere
We were very well looked after. The food was smashing. Not that keen on the table location and was chilly.
Fabulous evening - love this place.
I had a wonderful time with my mum on Saturday! It was a belated Mother's Day outing and the service and food were exceptional. We were served by the French girl (i'm sorry we didn't get her name). She was so lovely, friendly, helpful and made excellent recommendations of the menu. She is a real asset to the team at The Chip. And all the other staff were also, as ever, friendly and helpful too. We will definitely be back soon! Thank you.
Always enjoy eating in the brasserie. The mezzanine is lovely and light yet seems quite intimate at the same time. Our first choice for marking occasions.
Lobe the new menu. My friend and I had thenopen sandwiches. Scrumptious. Lovely people serving us.
Nice restaurant complex for drinks and food. Warm welcome, we were expected. Food was good, portions were big and wine smooth. Service was very attentive. Perhaps a bit cold. Would come again!
The staff were great, cocktails are lovely. I would recommend the “Bramble”. The food is of a good quality however, I would stay away from the steak as it doesn’t live up to expectations. However the crab cake as a starter is beautiful. We sat in the Mezzanine section of the restaurant which overlooks the full place.
Great vibe and delicious food, would highly recommend!
Service was excellent- even I when I asked for another chair as the one I sat on had NO stuffing at all. The girl concerned swiftly changed it. Thanks
