A much-loved restaurant in Chorleywood has announced it will be closing its doors after 52 years of serving the village.

The Peppermill Restaurant made the sad announcement on their Facebook page, saying they will be closing the premises on February 14.

The post read: “It is with great sadness we announce the end of an era (perhaps two) for Chorleywood.

“After 52 years of serving our cherished village The Peppermill will be closing its doors on the 14th February and moving to pastures new.

“Once the world returns to a semblance of normal we will continue to offer our outside catering and events service and hopefully we can be a part of all those delayed celebrations we have all sorely missed.”

Owner of the restaurant, Andre Vazquez, spoke to ChorleywoodNews and said he has mixed emotions about it all.

Talking about the reasons behind the closure, he mentioned: “It’s a key relation of various issues, the village being very quiet even before COVID19, then COVID-19 happened and there are various other issues too regarding the future.”

The restaurant will be continuing with their delivery and takeaway service from the kitchen at Chorleywood Golf Club.

This will resume on the first of March and the owners added on their post: “We look forward to the world returning to normal so we can serve both the members and the general public once again!

“On behalf of Andre, Suzanne, Pepe and Felicity it has been a pleasure to be an integral part of this community and we hope we leave you with very fond memories of many happy times spent at our little Peppermill.”

Residents said they are sorry to hear about the restaurant decision and they shared fond memories related to the place on social media.

One person said: “Gutted to hear! Peppermill was a huge part of my childhood (working and eating in!). Quality memories working with the Vazquez family and the great people I was lucky enough to meet throughout. Good luck with the move to Pastures and hope to see you soon.”

Another person mentioned: “So, so sorry to hear this. Looks like we’ll have to find the instructions for our oven on Sundays. Very best wishes for the future and look forward to a resumed take away service.”
