Norwich city centre restaurant closes down

A Norwich city centre restaurant has closed its doors, just nine months after new owners took it over.

Mackintosh's Canteen, in Chapelfield Plain, was sold along with the other businesses of restarauteur Henry Watt - The Mad Moose in Norwich's Golden Triangle, The Wildebeest Arms in Stoke-Holy-Cross and The Hunny Bell, near Holt - in April last year.

Animal Inns took over all four businesses but notices have now been put in the windows of Mackintosh's explaining that the restaurant has closed.

An Animal Inns notice states: 'We would like to take the opportunity to thank all our customers for their support over the years and look forward to continuing to welcome them at our other venues.'

It is thought the other three restaurants are unaffected and open as normal.
