In a Facebook post, a spokesperson for the restaurant thanked its customers, saying that it was "with a heavy heart" that the news is announced.

Plans are already underway to fill the empty unit.

A consultation is currently taking place, as part of the planning application process, to extend the antiques salesroom of the Fisherton Warehouse, at 71-73 Fisherton Street next door, into the Cactus Jacks unit.

Owners Joseph and Ann Henry have also applied to Wiltshire Council for a change of use and conversion of the first floor showroom to four flats, and for the beer garden to change to private landscaped communal gardens.​

The consultation deadline is April 20. To view the plans in full, click here.
