The Chang Thai bar and restaurant in Market Street has been a magnet for lovers of eclectic art, great food and loads of events - but the business owner has decided not to renew the lease.

Business owner Adam Tutt told the Shropshire Star that it had been a "fantastic and a great 20 years" but he was feeling "exhausted" by the 100 per cent lifestyle of running the business.

"It's sad it is going but things change and we definitely want to go dancing and high-kicking over the next four months," he said.

He added that he wanted to thank his loyal staff and customers and to invite them to have a "celebration of the last 20 years".

The business employs 15 staff and Adam said he is working with them to try to find job opportunities for them.

"There has been quite a lot of upset amongst customers but the end is not until July and we are not shying away from keeping the business running until then."
