Just as Glasgow meets East Renfrewshire, on the main road but still feeling like it’s tucked away in a corner (and easy to drive by), The Night Star’s slightly ominous name belies a homely and family-run chippy that’s been turning out fish suppers for more than 20 years. Apart from scampi, there are no surprises to the selection but portions are generous, chips are earthy, and fish is good quality (a ‘Friers Quality Award’ from the Seafish Industry Authority is proudly on display). Haddock suppers are well-priced and one can get a ‘mini’ supper – still a big half-fillet – for cheaper still. They also do a small pasta selection which comes with two slices of garlic bread. Tartare sauce and ketchup are 15p extra, but smiles from the chatty staff are always free.
