Southampton City Council successfully applied for a hygiene emergency prohibition order closing the premises until the health risk has been removed.
The premises will remain closed until the environmental health officer is satisfied that the health risk has been removed. Cllr Asa Thorpe, the Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, said:
“It is not acceptable for restaurants to be infested with mice and the Council’s environmental health officers will take robust action to protect customers where a food business operator fails to satisfy such basic hygiene requirements.”
