There are now 15 restaurants across the south, not including Weymouth.

Brewers Fuller, Smith & Turner bought a 51% share in the business in 2014.

Commenting on the closure of The Stable in Weymouth, a spokesperson for Fuller, Smith & Turner said:

"Due to the seasonality of the operation, it did not perform as we had hoped.

"Therefore, we have made the decision to close the site.

"The other Stable sites continue to deliver an outstanding cider and pizza offer to customers from Falmouth to Kew Bridge and we are still very excited by the potential of this excellent, young brand.”
