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.
Food was great. Had hard time finding where to go, Batman wasn’t very helpful with directions. Host seemed irritated we were early. Atmosphere was good, but Main dining room was really cold.
Great food, great service, lovely decor.
I have a garlic intolerance that I notified you about on booking. Such a pleasures to arrive and be handled my menu excluding garlic dishes instead of trying to find out at the table. Well done.
Beautiful place and delicious food
The Chip has been wonderful for 40 years. I would have liked more options that were not spicy.
Amazing dinner, would definitely go back. Thank you!
Always happy to return !
Delicious food and great atmosphere. We were there to celebrate a Masters graduation and the staff had printed out a little card to say Congratulations - the graduate in question was delighted by this very thoughtful gesture. The servers were very warm and friendly - we had a great evening!
Great service, lovely evening and would definitely recommend people to visit.
Always a wonderful night out.
Très bonne cuisine !
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal in the brasserie. We all had 2 courses with every mouthful being a delight. The decor is pleasant and the space between tables is comfortable allowing us to talk between ourselves without feeling over heard. The service is excellent with super friendly staff. We will definitely come back on our next trip to Glasgow when visiting family.
We had a great meal, the service was great
Good food and service - would recommend a visit!
Fantastic Lunch in the Brasserie. Will definitely be returning soon.
Fantastic atmosphere, interesting food, friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Everything was first class, the food was outstanding and the service brilliant. More than lived up to my expectations.
An extremely enjoyable dining experience
Not sure why a. Booking I made a month before landed me in the brasserie? Food was decent but a little overpriced.
What an amazing place!!! I found The Ubiquitous Chip on trip advisor before I made a short visit Glasgow and I couldn't have made a better choice of somewhere to eat in this pretty cobbled lane full of bar and eateries.. I had the most beautiful haggis neaps n tatties starter with whisky cream sauce which I had been soooo looking forward to and it was even better than I hoped for, followed by a gorgeous Ribeye n chips- the staff were lovely and friendly, the atmosphere very relaxing and I would recommend this to everyone living in, or visiting Glasgow!! Thanks for a memorable night guys :)
Good food and good value but service was a bit slow although the resturant was full so that was to be expected.
nice food, and good portions
Best restaurant in the West End!
One of the best meals we’ve had for a long time - beautifully presented great flavours. The sherry recommended with dessert was a revelation - thank you. Sorry I can’t be more constructive - found nothing to be concerned about.
