ONE of Suffolk's top award-winning restaurants is closing with the loss of 12 jobs as the economic recession continues to bite.

The Captain's Table, Quay Street, Woodbridge, will close after February 14.

The restaurant is the longest serving in Woodbridge and is housed in three 16th century cottages.

It has been owned by Pascal and Jo Pommier, a former pupil of Amberfield School, Nacton, since 1998, when they took over from Jo and Tony Prentice who had it for more than 30 years.

Mr Pommier said: ''We have had a really, really good reputation over the last few years and I think the Captain's Table is unique in Woodbridge.

''But the restaurant is not doing very well and people say that dining out is a bit of a commodity. The turn of the year has been awful, the worst ever, and the utility bills have also gone up.”
