A North Wales restaurant chain is closing one of its US-style diners and drive-thrus.
The announcement, made on social media, follows the closure of Harvey’s Pwllheli restaurant last year, which failed to re-open after lockdown.
Owner Craig Holmes said he was unable to comment on the reasons for the latest closure at present.
But he said a further announcement would be made in due course.
Regular customers of the Rhuddlan restaurant took to Facebook to express their shock and disappointment.
One person said: “Absolutely gutted, me and the kids,”
Another commented: “Such a shame, best customer service experience I’ve ever had, full service from start to finish was top notch including the food!”
One woman, who dined at the restaurant last month for her anniversary, added: “My husband is going to be gutted.
“His favourite place to eat out. The staff were great here.”
In a social media announcement, Harvey’s confirmed its restaurants in Llandudno and Bangor were unaffected and remain open.
The statement added: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal customers and team who have supported us throughout the Harvey’s Rhuddlan journey.”
It is unclear what will happen to staff at the restaurant – but customers were quick to wish them the best.

The Harvey’s brand started up in Llandudno back in 2012 and opened drive-thru locations in Rhuddlan and Bangor.
It then took on the former Conservative Club on the Maes in Pwllheli in 2017.
It had been a successful site for Harvey’s but the family decided to sell due to “other business commitments”.
