Chichester Observer readers had a lot to say about the closure of a major city centre restaurant.

Prezzo, on West Street closed its doors for the last time today (April 24) and Chichester Observer readers had a lot to say about the loss of a major franchise restaurant.

Most commenters seemed to think the restaurant should be turned back into The White Horse; a popular pub which closed some time before Prezzo moved in.

"Reopen The White Horse,” Paul Helyer added. “I reckon I bought that place twice over with the amount of money I put over the bar in the late eighties/ early nineties.”

Others bemoaned the loss of a well-established city centre eatery. Reader Connie Holland commented: “We must have been one of the last ones in there. That’s a shame.”

Others still see the closure as a sad indictment of the world around us – an appropriate response, since owners cited increasing energy and food prices as one of the reasons Prezzo branches up and down the country have closed.
