This is a cute looking little place that is immaculately clean. The haddock is a thing of beauty, so fresh looking, but it is served in an average, if non greasy, batter with average chips and no extras (lemon, tarter sauce) save malt vinegar. Do not order something like a hamburger unless you like them deep fried with little in... More

As good as it gets for fish & chips and that's really saying something given how fussy I am about chippies. Located just east of Glasgow city centre on the edge of the merchant city at junction of Ingram and High Streets. Basically a take away chip shop with a few tables and chairs but that all adds to the... More

Grabbed a fish supper from the Merchant Chippie on the way home. Chips were made from very tasty potatoes and not too soggy at all. Haddock was cooked in a very consistent smooth batter, not like the grease trap you can often get when the batter is irregular. Staff were pleasant and attentive. Recommended.

As chip shops go, this is one of the better ones I've been to recently. Freshly coiked delisious food, at a reasonable price, meant we weren't disappointed. Recommended.

Popped in for a sit down lunch. Had the Haddock and Chips. Both cooked to order and cooked to perfection. Very delicious indeed! Will be back for more.

After watching Andy & Jamie Murray giving GB a winning lifeline in Saturdays doubles tie, my wife and me ended up in the east end of the city centre. Having had enough of spicy,garlicky foods, we decided to head for the Merchant Chippie. We got there to find a small queue waiting to be served but thankfully a few people... More

As advertised, freshly cooked fish, crispy batter and delicious. Cod was less delicious than the bargain haddock - half the price and twice as nice.
