The pair said moving to a larger premises was unfeasible and risky.

They added: "We will of course continue to provide the same happy, quality service until the end of June and are still hoping to welcome you back through our door for our final few weeks, when regulations allow.

"You guys have been with us through thick and thin for almost five years and we just wanted to thank you. We simply couldn’t have done it without the love and support you have shown us, for which we are truly grateful."
