We’ve tried to get in touch with the business to find out anything about its future but have  not yet been successful.

It offered a range of food from breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and of course, steaks.

*Peaceable Re-entry

This means to physically re-enter the demised premises so that the landlord obtains possession of the property by physical excluding the tenant from the premises and securing it. This is often seen as the most favorable option by landlords for obvious reasons. It is a much faster way to terminate a lease than through court proceedings; it has minimum expenses; it avoids the often unpredictability of the court, and it shifts the responsibility to the lessee to apply for relief. The most common way of effecting forfeiture by peaceable re-entry is by simply changing the locks and taking control of the property.
