A pub in Glasgow’s west end was forced to close due to a “mouse infestation”.

Cottiers, which is found on the city’s Hyndland Road, was instructed to close at the weekend by environmental health officers in the “interests of public health”.

A spokesperson for Glasgow City Council said: “Cottiers was closed by Environmental Health because of a mouse infestation officers uncovered.

“Company has been instructed to address this problem in the interests of public health.”

The former church, which features a public bar, beer garden, theatre, dining room, and large function room often used for weddings, told customers it was closing “to do some refurbishment”.

In a post on social media, Cottiers said: “After a busy festive period we are taking the time to do some refurbishment. The main bar and Attic will therefore be closed until Monday the 16th.

“Sorry for any inconvenience. We hope you all have a lovely weekend and we can’t wait to welcome you back.”

Cottiers has been approached for comment.
