A RESTAURANT in the Vaults at Bolton Market Place appears to have closed.

The Bank, which opened in April 2017 was visited by bailiffs on Thursday January 10.

The restaurant had been due to officially reopen on Thursday January 3, having been closed selected dates over the festive period.

But one diner said he visited the venue twice in the following days and there was still no signs of it being open.

He said: "I went on January 5 and it was closed, even though there was a notice on door, which said it was meant to reopen on the 3rd.

"I passed again on Jan 7 and it was still closed with the same notice up."

Strikes Bailiffs have since left a notice on the side of the restaurant, on behalf of the landlords Inception Holdings S.A.R.L.

Dated January 10, the note reads: "The Landlord and/or Bailiff has today re-entered in accordance with the Landlord's power under the Lease.

"As a consequence of the re-entry the lease is forfeited and the premises have been secured.

"And take notice that no one can lawfully enter the premises unless they have been given authorisation by the Landlord.

"Any attempt to enter the premises without the Landlord's authority may be a criminal offence and result in a prosecution."

The Bank is the lastest restaurant in the Vaults to close after Gourmet Burger Kitchen shut in November amid financial concerns.

The owners of the Bank Restaurant have been approached for comment. The landlord and Bolton Market Place declined to comment.
