What’s the vibe? 

More than one of Glasgow’s best-known restaurants, Ubiquitous Chip is considered an institution in the city. Opened by Ronnie Clydesale way back in 1971, this warren-like destination with several bars (including the ‘Wee Whiskey Bar’), an upstairs bistro and a downstairs fine-dining restaurant remains a go-to for contemporary Scottish Cuisine. 

What are the prices like?

Prices range from £30-£49 per person depending on the menu of choice. 

What should I order? 

The Ubiquitous Chip has a strong focus on Scottish produce and Scottish food without relying on clichés, so Scottish is the way to go. Ubiquitous chip’s signature starter of venison haggis, neeps and tatties is a must if you’re wanting to venture into traditional Scottish cuisine. They also offer a vegetarian option. 

What’s worth visiting nearby?

The Ubiquitous chip is in Ashton Lane, which in itself is one of Glasgow’s most popular tourist attractions. The fairy lights make this cobblestone alley a picturesque spot at night-time. Glasgow’s botanic gardens are only a 10-minute walk away, and Byres Road, just around the corner from Ashton Lane, is full of cafes and local shops to browse. The University of Glasgow and its picturesque cloisters are also within walking distance.
