Renowned as one of Glasgow’s finest restaurants, The Ubiquitous Chip truly is a hidden gem. Whisk your way through the west end, down the cobbled and quirky Ashton Lane and you’ll find ‘The Chip’ as it’s affectionately nicknamed.
This beautiful restaurant is very spatially deceiving; almost like stepping into Mary Poppins’ famous handbag; the grandeur and sheer scale of the restaurant is only apprant once you’ve stepped inside. Boasting a ton of original features, some not-so-original and some downright stunning Alasdair Gray artwork - The Chip is a beautiful example of Scotland’s daring and imaginative culinary landscape.
The food here is sensational. Each dish a proud badge of Ubiquitous Chip’s commitment to locally sourced ingredients. These guys do things differently; just ask about where your ingredients were sourced and you’ll hear tales of foraging for mushrooms, sourcing vineyards for their bespoke house wine, local farmers knocking on their doors with some fresh carrots, parsnips and the odd rabbit. It really is inspiring.
Ubiquitous Chip is a very special place. There’s a sense of homeliness and rusticity to the restaurant and despite being a very upmarket venue in a prime west end location - there’s no pomp here. Further to The Chip’s commitment to source local, the restaurant is very community-orientated; building a community around the venue with events such as wine tastings and special set dinners.
The atmosphere here is unmatched; The Ubiquitous Chip is an outstanding example of Scottish cusine and charm, all built on the cobbled foundations of one of Glasgow’s most iconic and visited locations - Ashton Lane.
