A Chinese restaurant in Clevedon will close next week.

Cheung Chaw Chop Suey House in Old Church Road will open for the final time on February 28.

The restaurant, also known as Round Window, has been open for more than 50 years with the venue run by different generations of the Mak family.

The neighbouring Cheung Chaw takeaway will continue running as normal but the restaurant will be replaced by houses.

John Mak, the father of current owner Howard, says the business has recently found it hard to employ enough staff.
