Cheryl Benning said: “So sad to loose the one in Hailsham it’s such a sweet place being the old school house and I have always had great food and service there.”

Katy Baldwin said: “So sad to read this and so sorry for those who may loose their jobs….we absolutely love the Hailsham Prezzo and will miss it greatly.”

Much love was also given to the staff at the restaurants who also found out about their job losses on April 24.

Matt Latham said: “Gutted. Love the Eastbourne restaurant. Great food and lovely staff.”

Wendy Lewis, also agreed, saying: “We will miss the Eastbourne restaurant too. Always our first choice. So sad”

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.

Eloise Turner said: “It's a shame but more places will shut down as people cannot afford luxuries.”
