A long-standing independent Leamington restaurant has closed its doors for the last time with its owner blaming its closure on the influx of national chain eateries and coffee shops into the town.

Seasons Restaurant, in Warwick Street, opened 15 years ago and was run by chef Andrew Iredale and his mother, Pamela Iredale.

The restaurant built up a regular clientele, provided monthly ‘communion & coffee’ gatherings in association with Holy Trinity church, launched a popular wine appreciation society and initiated ‘quality time’ dining twice a month for families whose children suffer from learning difficulties, such as autism.

It also won three Godiva Awards which recognise the achievements of businesses in Coventry and Warwickshire.

This is a real shame.
