A popular West End seafood restaurant once visited by football superstar David Beckham has announced it won't be reopening in level three of coronavirus lockdown restrictions. 

It comes as Glasgow will move down a tier from level four to level three of the Covid regulations system this Friday. This means eateries and cafes will be able to reopen their doors for the first time in three weeks on Saturday morning. 

Despite easing of lockdown measures, the Crabshakk has sadly had to take the "heartbreaking" not to reopen their doors until 2021.

The popular Finnieston seafood eatery revealed it has "a responsibility to so many people to open in a sustainable manner", adding "the current regulations do not accommodate this".

A statement reads: "We have come to the heartbreaking decision to remain closed until 2021.

"Tears have been shed by staff, customer, owner, supplier akin. We are so sorry, but we have a responsibility to so many people to open in a sustainable manner, and sadly, the current regulations do not accommodate this.

"How is it we have the best customers in the world, even when there is no custom?! On behalf of the whole Crabshakk family, thank-you for being so incredibly resilient, patient, supportive and loving in a year of madness.

"Dinner isn't supposed to be this complicated! We cherish each and every one of you."
