Glasgow’s Ubiquitous Chip has been voted by the public as The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year for Scotland. The Ashton Lane eatery is one of ten winners from across the UK to have been given the award. Run by Which?, the consumer campaigning group, the award is run annually to find the UK public’s favourite independent restaurants. It was first recognised by the Good Food Guide back in 1972, making The Ubiquitous Chip the longest serving Scottish restaurant in the guide.
According to the publishers, “To qualify restaurants needed to be independently-run, offer regional or local produce where possible and deliver consistently great food and excellent service. The people’s choice award is compiled from customer reviews submitted to the Good Food Guide website”.
The Chip will be representing Scotland in London on the 20th of June at the annual Which? awards. Ten restaurants, from ten different UK areas, will be waiting to hear if they have been named overall The Good Food Guide Readers’ Restaurant of the Year for 2013. Owner Colin Clydesdale said, “It is wonderful to have won. Having been in The Good Food Guide since 1972 and to still be considered to be at the top of our game is enormously flattering. Running a restaurant does not get any easier, and the competition gets stronger year on year. To still be considered by our customers to be the best is amazing.”
