A little harder than usual from Quixote, I found. Solving time, 31 mins.

Notes on some clues below – happy to explain others if asked.

ACROSS

6 S (last letter of chips) CUP Was looking for ‘cha’ for a while.

14 IRREGULAR VERBS As ‘do’ and ‘have’ are – good.

25 GO B A (NANA) S Gob = spit, as = when, nana = granny

DOWN

5 RASPBERRY Double definition

7 COULOMB “Charge physicist” The unit of charge, named after the physicist – a little surprised that the two parts of the clue were not more distinct.    Or, maybe, a cryptic definition is intended, though then I thought there would have been a “?”

20 PAST Y i.e. at the end of the dictionary (under Z)

21 D (WEE) B Db = decibel (bit of noise)
