The award-winning Wicked Witch in Ryhall has closed.
A post on the restaurant’s website said: “It is with great sadness to announce that we have closed for business. We would therefore like to thank all of our customers who have been fantastic for the duration.”
A reason for the closure has not yet been given and calls to the restaurant have gone unanswered.
The Wicked Witch was one of the winners in the best dining pub category of last year’s East Midlands Food and Drink Awards run by Johnston Press, which owns the Rutland and Stamford Mercury, the Rutland Times and the Peterborough Telegraph. The restaurant was given a two fork and spoon classification in the 2014 Michelin guide.
The restaurant opened in February 2012 with Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson as one of four owners. It is understood he is no longer involved. The restaurant was formerly The Millstone pub.
