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.
Another excellent meal at the Chip! Our default choice for Glasgow dining!
Delicious food, efficient and engaging service, great atmosphere. What more could you want?
We chose this restaurant from its online site, and we so glad we did! EVERYTHING was wonderful from the moment we walked in the door. Food was amazing, and in the garden setting we felt so relaxed and peaceful. Truly a special place - go if you can!
Have eaten here many times before and the food has always been of the same high standard.
Returned for our wedding anniversary lunch. Excellent. We were very happy with everything. Looking forward to our next visit!
Brilliant, excellent menu, staff and location.
Excellent food, wonderful service and lovely surroundings, just can’t fault this place at all!
Fantastic flavoures and fresh food.
Lovely experience! Beautiful space, friendly, attentive service, good food...had haggis for first time and liked it!
Fabulous dinner in a beautiful room, with immaculate service, from cheerful and friendly staff. Great decor too, loved the decanters recycled into various lights.
Menu choice poor over elaborate!
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal as well as the fine service and lovely ambiance!
My wife and I visited on her birthday. As always the atmosphere, food and service were excellent.
We bring clients here on a frequent basis and it's always a success. Great food, service and atmosphere. We like Callum! Engaging and a pleasure to talk to
We had great service and the food just melted in my mouth, it was delicious. And with the desert I tasted a really good desert wine everything was just perfect. I highly recommend that people go to this restaurant.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch in a lovely ambiance. Our server was charming and delightful.
Would highly recommend it
My family have visited the "Chip" many times, using it fr lunch , dinner and special occasions. The standard and quality of both the food and service has always been maintained as excellent. I hope to visit many times in the future
The food was good but not excellent by comparison to previous visits. Likewise the service was ok but not excellent. All in all a nice dinner but certainly nowhere near as good as the Chip used to be. A shame really.
Always a lovely dining experience. Although was disappointed that we could not get the Tomato salad due to there being no tomatoes. Portions could be a little bigger for a hungry man. But its still my favourite place to eat and we cant wait to come back.
An amazing place to eat. Love love love it
Thank you for the fantastic food and service. We would definitely recommend you ( and have done so many times) Look onward to eating at the Chip again.
Outstanding food and service in a very quirky and unusual setting with bags of character. On a Thursday night the place was buzzing, testament to the delicious food!
We had an excellent evening celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We've been traveling a lot around Europe in the last 6 months and this was one of the best meals we've had
The staff made what would have been a great evening a really great evening! So much fun, helpful, interesting, hip and knowledgeable. Thank you!
