It adds: "We are getting so many supportive comments and we thank you. We are also getting some backlash and negativity!

"We want to advise that we follow strict guidelines - hand sanitizer stations track and trace, markings on floors for one way systems, all tables two-metres apart, constant deep cleans, waitress service, booking system so as not to go over our allowed capacity and police visits to check on measures.

"All of our staff have now been tested for COVID-19 and all results have came back negative.

"We will always do what’s best for our customers!

"Let’s also remember that someone has tested positive and we wish them a full recovery.

"We hope you all understand."

The Baillieston bar also reassured customers they had been following "strict" health guidelines, including the implementation of hand sanitiser stations and the test and trace system. 

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said it is "not aware" of an outbreak associated with the East End pub. 

A spokeswoman said: "We are not aware of an outbreak associated with this pub. We will update the public on any significant cluster of cases."
