About Ubiquitous Chip Restaurant

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.

For a memorable dining experience, come down and see why we call The Chip one of the best places to eat out in Glasgow.

The location and atmosphere was a perfect date night dinner! The food was delicious, but perhaps a bit on the small side. The lamb wasn’t available but it was substituted for roe deer and it was Perfect!

Hello We have just returned to Canada from our Scotland trip. Ubiquitous Chip was most certainly the highlight meal of our two week stay. Servers were welcoming and knowledgeable, food thoughtfully prepared with interesting flavors on offer. Good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend UC to friends!

Wee bit of an issue with getting two starters on time, but that might be us at fault as much as our waiter. Stunning as always, been a few times now and it’s my favourite restaurant in Glasgow. Steak was amazing and the Caledonian ice cream was mind blowing. Keep up the great work. 9.5/10. 👍🏽

The Vegetarian Menu is fine and well presented. We have been ordering from it for many years. That said, like other Restaurant Veggie Menus outwit London,you are omitting to ensure Protein Veggie dishes are available. Please consider adding Gardain,Tempeh and Quorn dishes to your Veggie Menu.

Had a lovely lunch and afternoon, as usual, though the rib- eyed beef was disappointing.

The Chip never fails to impress and delight. From front of house reception to waiting staff, sommelier and the ‘boys in the back room ‘of the kitchen, all were working at the height of their game to make us feel welcome and provide the sort of dining experience for which the Chip is deservedly renowned. Great food, great wine and great service. Thank you.
