The owners of local restaurant Chester's in Market Deeping have announced their plans for retirement.

Christine and David Weldrake have run the restaurant since 2003. Restaurant Manager Christine said, "We have had 14 fantastic years at Chester's with amazing support and friendship from the people of Deeping."

Head Chef David said that the decision had been a difficult one to make, "Many of our regulars have also become good friends and we will both miss running Chester's but the time has come for us to take a well-earned rest."

The restaurant with rooms is based in a beautiful 17th Century building in the centre of Market Deeping, offering indoor and outdoor dining, a large well-equipped catering kitchen and 6-bedroom accommodation - with associated bathrooms - including the owners' own residential area.

Julian Welch, Director at Barker Storey Matthews, who is instructed as the selling agent, added, "This is a rare opportunity to acquire a well-loved and successful restaurant which has an excellent reputation for top quality dining.

The residential accommodation is very flexible, providing either ample space for a family to live alongside their business or as letting rooms.

Alternatively, the property could easily be restored to a single large dwelling, subject to planning consent being obtained."
