For decades the traditional fish and chip shop has served the humble fish supper to families across Britain every single day. Despite being a cornerstone of our culture the concept has never been updated... until Now!

The Chippy is a casual, family friendly restaurant which since opening has offered a fresh and up-market twist on the old school chip shop we all know and love.

You can enjoy traditional favourites such as battered haddock and cod as well as more exotic choices. All will be served in a special recipe batter with traditional hand cut chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a wide selection of soups and salads available at all times.

Having been once before I expected the same great service however, that wasn't the case. I had a table booked for 3 pm on Saturday. We arrived at 2.45 pm to be greeted by a member of staff who appeared annoyed that we were 15 minutes early. We indicated we would need to sit and wait as the baby was due a feed. There were only three seats for waiting which were located right next to the busy doorway to the toilets and kitchen access. At 3 pm we still hadnt been seated despite the fact there were numerous large empty tables. After having to ask again at 3.10, we were eventually seated at 3.20 pm. The food was good although all four teas were on the cold side. The waiters also tried to remove plates from the table whilst we were all still eating. There were two private dining parties going on however management should have ensured there were enough staff to serve everyone. Highly disappointed and dont know if I will return.

We were there for a family lunch. They were very short staffed, nobody was there and the lady took a long time to seat us down. When we ordered, it took quite long to get our food and the waitress messed up our order. We ordered onion rings instead we got plain uncooked raw onions. Then once our fish arrived, it was uncooked, the chips were uncooked and tasted bland and nothing had flavour!

If you want traditional, well cooked fish and chips but would prefer to sit at a proper dining table to eat them, possibly with a pint, this is the place for you.

Unimpressed with new menu and don't like being welcomed by "do you have a voucher ?" Chippy is trying to be something it's not. Total lack of ambience, lack of o.a.p. menu and just not the same.

Location was a challenge to find so we were pleased that it was worth the effort. Our food was amazing - a bit slow on the service for both food and drinks but well worth the wait. One of our top fish and chip dinners in Scotland!

Decent service. Friendly enough but not overly friendly.
Good food and what you would expect.
Food came out hot so no complaints.
Atmosphere drowned out by where we were sitting next to the cooking area.

Food was amazing as always, however, the day I went the service was slow. The restaurant had maybe 5 tables in, and three waiters. We felt like we had been forgotten about. It took over 15 minutes for us to get our order taken, a further 10 before I got my drink (my two friends got their irn-bru after a couple of minutes). Nobody checked on us during the meal, and the waiters stayed near the front of the restaurant almost the entire time. When we had finished, nobody came to clear the table, and so we had to go to the till to pay. Normally the service is great, so I don't know if there was some kind of function on in the adjacent room but I left feeling disappointed by the service.

Lovely fish supper and pot of tea. We will need to return, if only to leave a tip. We felt so guilty not doing so, but had absolutely no cash on us as we had prepaid the meal.

We have been here a few times now and the food I always fresh and very tasty. We had a Groupon voucher for two for two fish and chips and a bottle of wine. It cost £20. Excellent value for money.

Food was very good and staff were pleasant and accommodating. It was busy due to graduation at the University but the staff did very well keeping up with things. Fish tasted fresh and delicious. Definitely would recommend.

Having been to chippy doon the lane numerous times previously, I can only say I was extremely disappointed on this occassion for 3 reasons.
Firstly I was sat across from the kitchen pass with my 2 children only to hear the chef swear at other kitchen staff and servers during my entire visit.
Secondly bread ordered with my food was never brought.
Thirdly I used the restaurants own website for feedback and given the complaint of the language used by the chef I assumed theyd make contact how wrong was I.

My partner and I dined at Chippy Doon a couple of years ago and enjoyed it a lot! We thought the fish and chips were wonderful. We returned to Glasgow recently and made a point of dining at Chippy Doon again. Unfortunately, this time around the fish and chips were very disappointing: Meager portion, soggy (though fresh) cod, and “wet” chips. Service was slow during both visits, but at least the food made it bearable. Not this time! I doubt we’ll return a third time.
