A hugely popular fish and chip shop in the southside has left local fans shocked after a sign appeared above the entrance saying they are moving to a new location.

Hooked, the award-winning chippy on Cathcart Road in Mount Florida has gathered a huge fan following thanks to its fresh approach to fish and chips, offering a wide range of options for foodies to enjoy.

However, local residents are now worried it could be heading elsewhere after a sign appeared on the front of the takeaway stating: "We are moving to a new location. Stay Hooked online for updates."

Fans were left speculating about what this could mean for the shop, which is currently takeaway only, with some stating that they could be looking for a bigger premises which might allow them to have a sit-in option too.

Others though were worried that it might mean a move out of Mount Florida altogether. So far, no further info has appeared on their socials explaining the signs.

After Glasgow Live contacted the team behind the popular chippy, who confirmed that they are moving but wouldn't confirm where as of yet, they responded: "Yes sadly it is true, we will be ending our time at this location very soon, but we are busy behind the scenes working on a brand new site. Just follow our socials to keep up to date."

First opened back in 2014, the takeaway is much-loved thanks to its take on the traditional chippy, with everything made to order and cooked using rapeseed oil.

When it comes to menu options, you'll find the usual offerings have been given an upgrade with fish supper lovers able to choose their fish (cod or haddock), their batter (traditional, crispy tempura, panko breadcrumbs or non-gluten) and even what their chips are made from (potato or sweet potato).

You'll also find traditional items like fritters and battered sausage sitting next to more modern offerings like King Prawn Tempura and battered halloumi on the menu.

They also have a selection of vegan options for those on a plant-based diet.
