Restaurateurs Richard and Lindsey Johns have announced they are to close their North Yorkshire restaurant Rascills.

Writing on Twitter, Richard said the site would shut at the end of the year or early January.

He added that the restaurant hadn’t “gone bust” but the couple completed their lease several months ago and were now pursuing an “exciting opportunity”.

Rascills opened in the village of Raskelf in autumn 2016​ and is recommended in the Michelin Guide and Good Food Guide.

The Johns' are the only members of staff, with Richard cooking and Lindsey serving front of house.

The couple previously ran award-winning restaurant Artisan in Hessle from 2004-2013.

They took on The Falcon Pub in Withernwick in 2014 but left in 2016 to help their friend Andrew Pern set up his York restaurant, before opening Rascills.
