Ubiquitous Chip is something of a novel name for such an Ashton Lane institution. For more than forty years, Ubiquitous Chip has been the site of raucous laughter and great festivities; immeasurable amounts of pints have been pulled, and endless plates served. The Chip's ethos is that dining should be an enthralling affair, filled with great food, good drinks and lots of laughter. It's this classic Scottish hospitality approach, that sets the tone for a charming, sprawling bar and restaurant, complete with an indoor rainforest, sky-high atrium and a littering of fairylights. 

The crowd is a slightly older bunch, but all ages are warmly welcomed, as long as you're prepared to weigh in on the odd debate over footie or politics. Food in the courtyard is fine dining Scottish style, while a brasserie selection is available in the bars, mezzanine and roof terrace. Tipples are regarded as a fine art at The Chip, from a bespoke wine selection to classic cocktails, with real ales and one mighty whiskey collection. There are four spaces to drink them in, included the smallest bar in Scotland, The Wee Pub. And with its Wine Club, Jazz lunches, sporadic festivals and impromptu sessions, there's always something going on at The Ubiquitous Chip.

(Oh and fun fact: Actress Kelly McDonald, and US Late Night Talk Show host Craig Ferguson both used to work here.)

A word from the chef:
A hearty mix of fine fare inspired by its native Scotland, with Aberdeen Angus Beef, Carsphairne Roe Deer in the restaurant and tatties n' haggis Loch Melfort mussels in the bars. And of course, the ubiquitous - hand-cut - chips.

Food is really fantastic, well worth a visit. The upstairs is absolutely gorgeous and covered in greenery, so try to sit there. It's like being inside a greenhouse and there's so much light. Really lovely cullen skink.

Managed to nab a table on the roof terrace over the summer bank holiday, such a lovely place to sit for drinks!
