A popular Thornbury restaurant has shut its doors.

Romy's Kitchen, on Castle Street, closed on Friday (August 1).

Run by Romy Gill MBE, the restaurant opened in October 2013 and has since won numerous accolades.

In 2018 Romy was shortlisted in olive magazine’s 2018 Chef Awards and she was also part of an exhibition honouring inspirational South Gloucestershire women.

Writing on Facebook she said: "Thank you everyone who have immensely supported me, but it's time to move on new ventures."

One of those new ventures is her first cookery book. Zaika:Vegan Recipes from India is out in September.
