Norfolk crab and lobster restaurant Rocky Bottoms has announced it is closed until June 14 to "regroup and rethink our next steps."
The owners of the venue, in Cromer Road, West Runton, situated in a restored brick kiln building, stated the closure was because of "unforeseen circumstances out of our control."
They revealed the closure was as a result of staffing issues with the venue recently advertising its need for people to work in the kitchen.
The Matthews commented simply by saying: "We shall be reopening but just needing more staff."
However, the restaurant's crab hut serving takeaway boiled crabs and lobsters as well as sandwiches, crab cakes, cockles and oysters, remains open.
