Description: Floating on the mezzanine overlooking the main restaurant at The Ubiquitous Chip, The Brasserie offers inventive and wholesome bistro-style dining with the same integrity and commitment to good quality food as the main dining area. Set over the top level of The Chip and offering everything from all day brunch at the weekend, quick midweek lunches and leisurely evening dinners, The Brasserie menu is as diverse as it's surroundings. Like the original restaurant opened back in the 1970s, The Brasserie at the Ubiquitous Chip is on a mission to keep Scottish food and Scottish producers firmly on the culinary map. Using nasturtiums and tomatoes grown on our own mezzanine, Inverurie beef, Seil Island crab, Loch Melfort mussels and Ramsay's of Carluke's pork belly - we offer you the best of what Scotland has to offer in a magical space.

“Very friendly and tasty”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We dined in the brasserie and were greeted with a very friendly welcome. The setting has got plenty of character and very pleasant and airy.
The beers and wine very great and the food, including the haggis dish, was very tasty.
The customers whom we chatted to all commented favourably about the food and I would recommend this restaurant.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We had a wonderful reunion meal with friends in such a fantastic place. Everyone enjoyed the whole meal even though there were 7 of us, which is quite an achievement. The waiting staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. I will certainly go back again and would recommend it to all my friends.

“Disappointing food in great surroundings”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

'The Chip' has been a Glasgow institution, especially for those who have studied at Glasgow University, for as long as I can remember. Dining downstairs is more expensive than in the less formal upstairs brasserie. Sitting upstairs, with a view over the downstairs diners is my preference. They have really done a great job of creating a lovely light, airy and attractive space. But I was very disappointed with my Haggis, Neeps and Tatties. If my parsimonious helping was really the £9.45 'large' version on the menu, you'd need a microscope for the smaller one! It wasn't very hot, it lacked flavour and was very disappointing indeed. My companions opted for the ploughman's, for which the staff was very happy to replace the oatcakes for bread and omit the balsamic onion.
It was as quiet as I have seen rhe chip, but I didn't feel the staff were especially attentive to our needs.

All in all, disappointing.

“first time back for a while”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

when we told friends on a visit from england that we were going to the chippy on there first night in scotland we had a strange look from them. when we took them into ashton lane the look changed and when they went through the door it had completley changed it certainly is different.we were upstairs they could not believe you can get so many different places in that area. one of the party has to have a gluten free diet and the staff could not have been any better finding out if her choice was ok. i ordered the lambs liver and was asked how wanted it cooked it came just the way i asked for it. the rest of the party really enjoyed their choices of food and wine, being a beer man its nice to go to restaurant and get a pint of scottish beer without having to order some draught foreign beer. thank you for showing friends that good will match anything in the london area and not have the prices. ps can i change that to beat the london area. thanks again to the staff.

“Excellent.”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Dined on a Saturday evening at the brasserie and it was lovely. Service was friendly and quick. Had the Aberdeen Angus rump steak with stovies, potatoes, mushrooms and pepper sauce. Steak was really tender and tasty. We had a really nice riocha with it. Dessert was to die for - chocolate tart with strawberry sorbet.
An all round great evening.
