Shock Christmas Day closure announced by restaurant voted third best in Gloucester

One of Gloucester's best-loved restaurants made a shock announcement over the Festive period.

So Thai at Bearlands - the Trip Advisor third-best rated Thai restaurant in the county - made the announcement on Christmas Day.

In a tweet, released at 6.20pm on December 25, the restaurant's staff announced that they were closing their doors for good.

The tweet said: Dear customers merry Christmas to all, and I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks for all of the great support that we have received in the past six years.

"However unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we are no longer going to be open. Once again thank you!"

The tweet's replies were a mixture of shock and sadness that the restaurant had closed.

Near neighbours to Punchline, So Thai at Bearland was based in the historic Bearland House and had been open since February 2014.

It was rated as the fourth best restaurant in Gloucester on Trip Advisor, and third best Thai restaurant in the county on the same site.

So Thai launched a British restaurant So Pie based in St Luke's House on Llanthony Road that will remain open.
