The owners of a wine bar in a Suffolk town have made the "difficult decision" to bring their closing down date forward. 

It was announced earlier this month that Langams Wine Bar in Stowmarket would cease trading at the end of May. 

However, bosses have said the business will now no longer be open to the public during May. 

The wine bar launched at the cafe in Market Place in August 2023 when Tom Mills and Ryan Luke brought the best of their local spirits to the mid Suffolk town.

In a statement, Mr Mills and Mr Luke said: "We have been overwhelmed by everyone's kind words since we announced that we would stop trading at the end of May.

"Upon reflection we have made the difficult decision to bring our closing date forwards and we will no longer be open to the public during May.

"We have a handful of private parties which we are hosting so you will still see the lights on during some evenings, however our regular evening trade will not be taking place.

"We would just like to take this final chance to thank everyone for their support whilst we have been open, especially everyone that helped us out along the way."
