Lucy and Richard Golding at the former Market Bistro.

The owners of a King’s Lynn pub, deli and restaurant have announced plans to shut the business next week.

Goldings Public House and Rooms, at the Saturday Market Place, is to close on Thursday, January 9.

Lucy and Richard Golding launched the venture in January 2018 after running Market Bistro for eight years.

The pub, formerly The Wenns, was extensively refurbished and offered six guest suites.

In a Facebook post, Mrs Golding said attempts to renegotiate the rent had failed and the couple were “devastated”.

“It’s been more than emotional,” she wrote. 

“I hope you have enjoyed what we worked hard for.”

Mrs Golding also paid tribute to the staff and thanked supporters for their kind comments.
