A HIGH Street restaurant has announced it is closing its doors after 10 months in town.

Stateside Bar and Kitchen confirmed this morning, Tuesday, that it would be closing due to 'challenging conditions'.

The American bar and restaurant opened at the end of November 2018, on the site of the former Cheshire Bar and Grill, Zitano, Tiano, and Vita Bella.

Lyn said: "It is with great sadness to announce we are closing.

"This is one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my amazing team and to all of our customers and people that have supported this venture.

"We have tried everything we can to keep this going, but in challenging conditions we have had to take this incredibly tough decision.

"We wish Northwich and all the other businesses in the area all the best for the future.

Northwich Guardian:

"We hope you will continue to support your local independent businesses."

Five restaurants have closed at the building, at the bottom of High Street, since the start of 2017.
