The owners of a much-loved smokehouse restaurant in a seaside town has announced its closure. 

The View Smokehouse which operates in Beach Street in Felixstowe has closed down. 

In a post on Facebook owners said: "We are very sad to announce that we have ceased trading at beach street. This has been a really tough decision for us.

"We would really like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our lovely, loyal customers.

"We couldn't have done it without you. We appreciate you all."

It comes after The Viet Street Food Company shut its doors after being at the Beach Street complex since 2021.
