The owner of a Norwich takeaway has made the "tough" decision to close due to family circumstances. 

Andy Davis first opened Norwich Smokehouse in Aylsham Crescent, off Aylsham Road, in October last year, but had to shut it less than a week later due to building issues.

It then officially launched in December and proved popular with its low and slow cooked meats.

But Mr Davis, who also runs Take Thai in Dereham Road, is now set to permanently close Norwich Smokehouse from April 10.

He said: "It has been a tough decision to make, but with recent events my attention is needed with my family and my own health and something has to give.

"I want to say a big heartfelt thank you to all the amazing customers."

Speaking about his other takeaway, Mr Davis added: "I have missed being around Take Thai on a daily basis.

"The staff there are like my own family. We are all about quality food and I will now focus on that and some exciting additions to the menu for our many loyal customers."
