Luss Fish & Chip Co.

Luss Fish & Chip Co. is new restaurant and takeaway offering from Luss Estates in the heart of the picturesque village of Luss, on the banks of Loch Lomond.

The chippy is the result of the success of the fish menu at the Luss Seafood Bar and in response to customer requests for fish and chips for takeaway.

Because of this demand, the Luss Seafood Bar evolved into the Luss Fish & Chip Co. in summer 2020, with newly designed branding and an interior refurbishment to compliment the new menu.
