Food fashions come and go (remember the cronut?) but fish & chips will always reign supreme.
And while it tastes delicious wrapped in paper and scoffed down al fresco in the park, sometimes it’s nice to sit in a comfy restaurant and enjoy it in style.
Today’s Big Deal gives you a chance to sample the wares with either a fish supper or a two course meal for two. If seafood isn’t your thing, then there are other tasty options available as well.
Fresh and authentic
Since opening the doors in 2007, The Chippy Doon the Lane has offered a fresh and up-market twist on the great British tradition of fish and chips.
Situated just off Buchanan Street, at the end of McCormick Lane, the restaurant is housed on the first floor of Glasgow’s iconic McCormick Printers building.
Having completely transformed the building, the owners have been serving up fresh and authentic fish and chips to the families, diners and shoppers of Glasgow ever since.
There are two options with today’s Big Deal, both available Sunday to Friday from noon until 9pm and Saturdays from noon until 2pm.
Option one is for two people to sit in and have a fish supper with the house tartar sauce, lemon and bread & butter.
All the fish suppers are freshly battered, cooked to order and served with proper, hand-cut chips.
Customers can choose between fish such as coley, plaice, haddock, cod or lemon sole – all of which have been carefully selected with sustainability in mind.
Sea bass is excluded from this deal.
Two course meal for two
Option two is for a starter and main course each with tea or coffee.
Individual items can change, but customers can expect starters such as the soup of the day with bread and butter, house salad with honey and mustard vinaigrette, or haggis bites with salad and sweet chilli dipping sauce.
Mains may include fresh battered coley supper with hand-cut chips, homemade tartar sauce and lemon, mac ‘n’ cheese with garlic bread, or a jumbo pork sausage supper.
At the time of writing, some 475 5pm customers have given The Chippy doon the Lane an impressive combined score of 4.1/5.
This is what a couple of recent 5pm visitors had to say:

This review is from TripAdvisor:
‘Best fish supper in Glasgow. What a treat!! A real fish supper… The haddock and cod are the freshest and tastiest in Glasgow as are the chips. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. Do not return home without giving it a visit.’
Located in the middle of Buchanan Street’s many shops, diners can pop in for a bite to eat in between bashing the plastic.
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and Cineworld are both just a short walk away.
Tuck into today’s Big Deal from The Chippy Doon The Lane.
Just don’t do anything daft. Like going all Edinburgh and drowning your fish supper in salt and sauce.
