An English Pub that caught everyone’s attention with its double-decker food truck is closing its restaurant in West Homewood.

Little London Kitchen cited understaffing as the reason for the closure.

Here is the post announcing the restaurant’s status:

“Hello all. We appreciate all of the love and support you have shown us throughout the last few weeks. You have truly shown the power of community. However, we cannot in good conscience continue to deliver the level of service we have as we are so understaffed. Please check back in for updates soon. Thank you.”

Earlier this month, the popular eatery posted on September 7th a somber note mentioning its staffing troubles and rising food costs. A day after publishing that note, the Queen passed. Little London was included in a Bham Now story last week about their reaction to Her Majesty’s passing.  

Permanent or Temporary?

Eager to find out if this closing is temporary or permanent, along with details about whether the food truck will still be operating we reached out, but were not able to reach the owners. Stay tuned for updates as we learn more.
