A popular pizza restaurant in Bristol has closed after a pest control problem put the ‘final nail in the coffin’ for the business.    

G Brothers Pizza, on Albion Road off the High Street in Easton, announced its closure the day after receiving a hygiene emergency prohibition notice.

In an Instagram post, the pizzeria wrote: “I'm so sorry to say I think this is the end for G Brothers Pizza.  

“The pest control problem which we're still struggling to get on top of has put the final nail in our coffin. 

“Thank you so much to our wonderful staff and customers who have supported us over the years - the place will reopen under new management”.

The prohibition notice, issued by Bristol City Council on March 20, said there is ‘a pest infection which is not adequately treated’ at the premises.   

It came a month after the pizzeria received a ‘0' - 'urgent improvement necessary' rating in a Food Standards Agency inspection.  G Brothers Pizza is owned and run by Gareth ‘G’ Hunter, who originally opened the pizza restaurant alongside his brother, Geoff, who has since moved on.
