Colin Clydesdale’s “well-established” feature of forty years standing (founded by his father Ronnie in 1971) continues to draw fans to its large West End premises, with its very appealing and “romantic” decor, plus what fans acclaim as flavoursome modern Scottish cooking, backed up by a huge wine list and vast malt whisky selection. There is the odd critic who says “I used to love the ‘Chip’, but nowadays it’s living on borrowed time”… then again, people have been saying that for the last twenty years!

“Still with a buzz about it” – this sprawling West End legend is fast approaching its 40th anniversary and still manages to be both “different and classical”. Its many fans agree that it’s “wonderful for both food and environment”, not to mention its bible of a wine list and “awe-inspiring malt whisky selection” (of which “the staff have a remarkably broad and deep knowledge”). Now run by Colin Clydesdale, son of founder Ronnie, the ‘Chip’ has a more casual brasserie upstairs.

This “terrifically atmospheric” Glasgow institution in the West End is on top form: its “imaginatively presented” modern Scottish cuisine with “top-quality ingredients”; famous and “very interesting” wine list; malt selection “to die for”; and “knowledgeable staff” earning high ratings across the board. Named with irony by founder Ronnie Clydesdale in 1971, ‘the Chip’ is now run by his son Colin. Meals are served in the main restaurant or more casual upstairs brasserie. Tip tip: “there’s the option of eating upstairs with a more informal menu”.
