The Ashton Lane restaurant has been voted Scottish restaurant of the year by readers of the Good Food Guide ? the latest in a string of top honours to be gained down through the venture?s 40-year history.

Run by Which?, the consumer campaigning group, the award is run annually to find the UK public?s favourite independent restaurants.

Its quality was first recognised by Which? in 1972, making The Chip the longest serving Scottish restaurant in the guide. Now the restaurant will represent Scotland at the UK final of the restaurant of the year awards in London on June 20 ? so could be judged the finest in Britain.

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.?
