“We would like to thank all of our customers who visited our restaurant over the years especially those who come on a regular basis; without them we would not have been able to sustain the restaurant for over 20 years.
“The premises will continue you to run as a restaurant after we have gone, as a new owner will be taking the reign under a new name.
“We hope our community will serve them well as they did us.”
