Ye can't beat deep fried haggis

It was Friday night and we were wandering downtown Glasgow, no dinner reservations, trying to find someplace to eat! We stumbled on this place and they said they were booked, but could give us a table for 1 hour. Glad we took it! We both had the Haggis Fritter Supper. Deep fried haggis in batter... read more

My wife and I were looking for a place to have fish and chips for our last dinner in Scotland when we stumbled upon Chippy Doon The Lane. It was not an easy place to find, but the search was well worth it. We started with the Haggis Bites which consisted of two half slices of deep fried haggis served... More

I wanted to have some fish and chips today. But I wanted breaded fish and not the Blue Lagoon food (the quality and taste are debatable) so I checked Tripadvisor and decided to go to Chippy doon the lane which was only a 15 mins walk away from my then present location. The restaurant is a bit hidden but getting... More

Food was of its usual high standard, unfortunately standards in service have slipped considerably since our last visit (around 6months ago). We were a party of 5 aging from 1-70 and had booked as an early Fathers Day present for my dad. We had folded down the pram and placed it in the floor behind our table but we're told... More

This is really the best chippy place in Glasgow. Their tartar sauce with it is amazing (I have been trying to ask them to sell their tartar sauce) The fish is really fresh and crispy, same as their chips, never fail to disappoint. Their staffs are very energized, but there are times when they are too busy and I need... More

A recommendation from our hotel and a great one. Down a short lane that you would likely not go down without knowing what's at the end. Very popular with locals. First time was a take out but went back for lunch. Great spot.
