Scotland is intrinsically a socially minded country with Glasgow being the working heart of the nation. The West End has always been the bohemian hub of the city. Arts, literature, politics and football are discussed with equal fervour. Over the years, The Chip has filled with art created by staff and patrons alike . Countless thespian enterprises have been spawned over “just one more for the road”. Within this culture fine dining could never be a sombre affair. Since opening 40 years ago we have naturally endeavoured to break down the inane formalities of top-end dining, preferring instead to concentrate on the joy of eating, drinking and living.
