However, in recent weeks it has been mysteriously closed, with a sign claiming there is a problem with the building – the only clue as to what has happened. Enquiries with East Dunbartonshire Council have revealed no further information.

Local councillor Rosie O’Neil (Lib Dem, Bearsden North) said: “It’s a shame to see  such a popular local restaurant and meeting place temporarily shut.

Whatever the problem is, I hope the parties can put their heads together and find a solution quickly.”
