A statement from Horn Please reads: "With the heavy heart, we have to announce that we have taken the decision to close down.

"We have tried to sustain ourselves for as long as we could, but unfortunately we had to make a decision to sell the property.

"This doesn’t mean that we are letting go of our team, only that we will focus on our other business establishments and future business ideas.

"Our passion for food is what has driven us for all these years, and we are not gonna stop now!"

Customers can be reassured that the team will continue to exercise their passion for food through their private catering and events, their store, and running their Spanish tapas restaurant Cubatas on Elderslie Street.

They added: "Thank you for all of your support throughout these years! We do hope to see you in our other ventures!

"Kind Regards, Horn Please Team & Management."

Regular customers expressed their disappointment at the news, with one commenting: "Noooooo!!!! I am so gutted to hear this."

Another wrote: "That’s sad to hear! All the best for future endeavours."
