Truly a Glasgow legend since 1971, long before Glasgow was knwon for local produce on the tables or foodies savouring sourdoughs and artisan cheeses! I first dined here in the 80’s – I remember sitting at the next table to Denis Waterman who had a number one at the time so that dates the year and the week!! I still think it is a wonderful place.
A fine family business, founder Ronnie Clydesdale is sadly no longer with us, but never forgotten, and son Colin is now at the helm here, along with his own creations Stravaigin and Hanoi Bike Shop. The Chip has a great iconic reputation world wide and celebs can still be seen dining alongside locals! This pigeon (pictured) with barley risotto was superb and the indoor courtyard with water garden and fabulous natural light is as beautiful as ever.
Their extensive wine list is also the recipient of many awards and The Chip is Winner of Two AA Rosettes and Good Food Guide, Rating 5 since 1971 – 5th longest serving overall, and longest serving in Scotland.
