A second Glasgow institution has confirmed it is to close its doors in a shock announcement.

The Waverley Tea Room in Shawlands has been serving the good folk of the Southside for 11 years.

However, the team said today that “all good things must come to an end.”

The news comes on the day Danny Singh’s - also in Shawlands - is set to shut.

In a statement issued this afternoon, The Waverley Tea Room said: “[We have] been serving the good people of the Southside since 2006 and, like everything else, all good things must come to an end.

“We have spent many years in consultation with our local community about how our space and the building - formerly known as Tusk - should be put to best use, and we will no doubt continue to do so in the future until we find the right fit for something new.

“We will be closing our doors from Saturday, September 30, and we thank you all for your custom over the years.”

The statement was signed off: “The Tearooms Team.”

One Facebooker wrote: “Gutted. Good luck Mete and all the guys at Tearooms.”

Another said: “First Danny Singhs - what is happening in Shawlands?”

The closure is one of several to have to taken place in Glasgow in recent months, with Tivoli, Chinatown Restaurant, Amber Restaurant, Club Noir, and Bakery47 just a handful of institutions to say goodbye.
