A FORMER Ruthin restaurant is now up for sale.

Back in May, it was announced that The Myddelton Grill, on St Peter's Square, would be closing its doors with immediate effect.

The restaurant is now for sale with Cavendish Residential, with offers of around £450,000 being invited.

In a post on its Facebook page in early May, the establishment said: "Unfortunately, we have made a business decision to close the Myddelton with immediate affect.

"Due to overhead costs increasing by nearly 50%, and lack of sales due to only having downstairs of the resturant open, whilst trying to sell everything, we have made the sensible decision to close the resturant. 

"We will be in and out of the building over the coming weeks to sell everything, and have some stock to clear, so keep an eye on our Facebook page for the deals. 

"We are absolutely gutted it has come to this, but it would be irresponsible of us to continue the way we are, the team have backed our decision, and they will still help us over the coming weeks.

"Once again thank you for the support these last few years, we will post again when we finally leave the building. 

"Thanks for your understanding."

Emma Broster ran the restaurant with her brother Gavin and she said: "Thanks to everyone who has supported over the years, pre, during and post covid, it has been hugely appreciated, and will never be forgotten.

"Also a huge thanks to our amazing team, who have worked hard, and has made working at the resturant that more enjoyable from all the personality traits they have.

"We will miss working with all of them, but know they will go to do amazing things, they are such a bright and talented bunch."

According to Cavendish Residential estate agents, it is a "renowned Grade II-listed building also known as 'The Seven Eyes' standing in a prominent trading position in the centre of this very popular and picturesque market town'.
