AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu

In a city with an impressive food and drink scene, one of its most intriguing pubs hides down a cobbled Victorian mews in Glasgow’s trendy West End. From opening day in 1971, the Chip drew inspiration from regional Scottish dishes, with people’s aunties, grannies and even folklore a constant source of inspiration. The main dining area opens into a vine-covered courtyard, while upstairs is the brasserie-style, two AA-Rosette restaurant. A fine-dining menu is on offer in the restaurant and there are lighter brasserie choices in the various bars, mezzanine and roof terrace. There are several drinking areas – the traditional Big Pub, serving real ales, nearly 30 wines by the glass and more than 150 malt whiskies, a roof terrace and the Corner Bar which serves cocktails across a granite slab reclaimed from a mortuary; The Wee Pub (the smallest in Scotland) is a great place to stand and chat with a wee dram. Regular events, such as jazz, whisky and saxophone quartet lunches, offer an insight into a wide range of cuisines, wines and cultures.
