The cost-of-living crisis forced the closure of a top Glasgow restaurant after 22 years.

Now, administrators have been appointed to Brian Maule at Chardon D'Or after the fine dining restaurant dished out its final service on July 22.

All 21 employees at the West Regent Street establishment have been made redundant.

Led by the award-winning chef Brian Maule, Chardon D'Or was forced to close due to the cost of living crisis.

Soaring food and energy prices as well as a 'lack of support' for the hospitality sector were cited as reasons for the closure.

In an emotional farewell statement, the restaurant team thanked their customers for the memories over the years and apologised to staff for the loss.

Blair Nimmo and Alistair McAlinden from Interpath Advisory were appointed joint administrators to Le Chardon d’Or Limited on July 27 2023.

Blair Nimmo, chief executive of Interpath Advisory, said: “These are tough times for the hospitality industry, which was first left reeling by the impact of lockdown measures during the pandemic, and which has since had to contend with hyperinflation and the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on its customer base.”

Alistair McAlinden, head of Interpath Advisory in Scotland, added: “Brian has worked tirelessly to ensure that Chardon d'Or’s market-leading reputation was maintained, even in the face of the most challenging trading and financial conditions in its 22-year history.

"Our immediate priority will be to provide assistance to employees, including providing them with the information necessary to make claims for redundancy pay from the Redundancy Payments Office.

“We will also seek to realise the Company’s assets for the benefit of its creditors, which will include bringing the property at West Regent Street to market in due course.

"Given the unique opportunity to acquire hospitality premises of this quality, we would strongly encourage interested parties to make early contact with the Joint Administrators.”
