Food fashions come and go (whatever happened to 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.
Since opening its doors in 2007, the ever-popular Chippy Doon the Lane has offered exactly that with its fresh and upmarket twist on the great British fish & chip shop.
Today’s Big Deal gives you a chance to sample the wares with a two course meal for two. And if seafood isn’t your thing, then there are other tasty options available as well.
Two course meal for two
Situated just off Buchanan Street, The Chippy Doon the Lane is a relaxed, contemporary eating spot that has reinvented the fish & chip shop for the 21st century.
This Big Deal is for two people to sit in and enjoy a starter and main course each. It is available Sunday to Friday from noon to 9pm and Saturdays from noon to 2pm until 31st May 2019.
Individual items can change, but here is a selection of what you can expect:
Soup of the day with bread and butter
House salad with honey and mustard vinaigrette
Haggis bites with salad and sweet chilli dipping sauce
Fresh battered coley supper with hand-cut chips, homemade tartar sauce and lemon
Mac ‘n’ cheese with garlic bread
Jumbo pork sausage supper
If you opt for the fish supper, it will be freshly battered, cooked to order and served with the restaurant’s very own tartar sauce.
The meal is followed by a tea or coffee for each guest.

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.’
Daytime or evening treat
Since The Chippy Doon the Lane is based bang smack in the middle of Buchanan Street, you can pop in for a bite to eat while on a shopping spree.
Alternatively, as The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and Cineworld are both nearby, this would be a great option before a show or a film.
Not that you need any of those excuses though – a slap-up two course meal is enough of a reason to head to this smart fish & chip restaurant.
