Ubiquitous Chip reviews



By Nina J.

Over priced, over hyped restaurant that never fails to disappoint regardless of the occasion of event that I'm attending. We went to Ubiquitous Chip for my cousin's graduation last year and the service was atrocious. Then my sister had a 30th birthday and she booked Ubiquitous Chip for the family to celebrate. Another let down, the food is not that great and the prices are ridiculous. I don't particularly like the atmosphere and always feel like we're being harassed for the table back. A works do last weekend was diabolical and I swore I would never be back. Wrong orders, staff didn't crack a smile and then they expect a decent service charge/tip! Don't think so. Glasgow has many more restaurants that offer way better quality, service and value. And just a note on quality, the waiting staff could not give any indication about ingredients or sourcing of food! I find that shocking in this day and age when it's all about food miles and local produce. She had to ask someone else who clearly just made up an answer that he thought would please us! In response to an earlier reviewer, I would say that it is very unusual for security staff to remove someone from the premises without good reason so I hope your issue gets resolved.

My comments refer to to the upstairs bar. Having had many a jolly time in Ubiquitous Chip I was saddened by the behaviour of staff whence last there. The behaviour ranged from regrettable to appalling. We were harassed numerous times by a member of staff to vacate to the main bar area of the premises when 1am arrived, to finish our drinks. We complied with this request only to be harassed by a second member of staff upon reaching the main bar to now leave the building without finishing our drinks (which were sold to us only minutes before 1am). This member of staff commented that he wasn't being paid to be there after 1am, didn't care that we hadn't finished our drinks and wanted to get home. When a member of our party reasonably objected to his comments another member of staff weighed in to tell him to "shut the fuck up". A request was then made to a disinterested bar maid, to speak to the manager, who passed our complaint over to a senior member of staff, who was useless in addressing the matter. Finally someone owned up to being the manager and was also of no help. To add insult to injury a member of our party was harassed out of the building by security for no reason, while the complaint was registered, and this member of security was being very aggressive and making false claims about Scottish Licensing Laws, particularly which laws we were allegedly breaking (which we were in fact not). Suffice it to say a complaint is being made to the owner, and disciplinary action encouraged against staff involved, particularly the verbal abuser.

Ubiquitous Chip is in equal measure a restaurant and a pub. You can order an elaborate meal or simply enjoy a drink on the sunny roof terrace.

The Venue
This old cottage has been a restaurant since 1971, but more recently the place has become a pub as well, opening up a corner of the building to punters eager to have just a beer rather than a sit-down meal. The building is a bit of a maze, with bars sprouting up here and there. The restaurant and the newest part of the pub is on the first floor and there’s a smaller boozer on the ground floor.

The two bar areas have far more charisma than the restaurant and they are responsible for keeping things busy during the day. The ground floor pub, The Wee, looks old, with bricks painted white and a slanted ceiling. It has been recently restored to its old glories and has room for just 28 people.

The bar on the first floor is entirely new. Well, this is a relatively new concept as the tin ceiling was imported, the marble apparently comes from a mortuary and the wood is reclaimed seasonal timber. The nicest bit is the roof terrace. This small, cosy sun-trap allows you to catch some rays in complete privacy while sipping on a drink.

The People
Ubiquitous Chip, of The Chip, is popular with those who are in their late thirties and above. This place is rather casual and refuses the glamour and attitude certain other venues in Ashton Lane promote.

The Food
The restaurant runs a different menu at lunch and dinner. You can order a set menu for £35 to £40 (two or three courses) and pick from the adventurous guinea fowl and pea sausage with beetroot and apple spaghetti, trio of duck with Cumberland sauce, free-range Perthshire pork fillet stuffed with prunes and haddies, Perthshire pigeon roasted in bacon with wild mushroom sauce, rich game sauce and pearl barley risotto and others.

Otherwise you can pick freely from the brasserie menu, which includes west coast squid and potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce, warm salad of pan-fried duck livers and strawberries with balsamic dressing, walnut dipped goat’s cheese fritter with aubergine, caviar and white wine and orange sauce, Orkney organic salmon marinated in honey, tamari and ginger with mashed potatoes and spinach sauce, and many other succulent dishes. For dinner, starters are from £3 to £6.25, mains are £7.65 to £17 and desserts are £5.

The Drink
Depending on which bar you end up in, you are likely to either order wine (the first floor bar) or beer (The Wee Pub). In the first case, you can choose from a number of bottles priced at £12 to £15.70 (the restaurant stocks more bottles ranging up to £125) with glasses also available at £3 to £4 and they also sell some sparkling roses. If beer is more your thing, opt for a pint of Furstenberg, Riegeller or Addlestone. Cocktails are also available at the bar on the first floor.

The Last Word
The food is excellent and the drinks are uncomplicated. Simply decide what kind of atmosphere you want, and sit down and eat and drink till your heart’s content.
