Walrus and Carpenter restaurant shuts after 37 years
A restaurant which has been a part of Bath life for nearly 37 years has closed.
It is not known what led to the sudden closure of the Walrus and Carpenter in Barton Street, which specialised in English organic food.
A notice posted on the door said the premises had been effectively repossessed last week.
The independent restaurant was established in 1974, and at one time had a sister restaurant in Bristol.

Geoff Walker of David Walker in Gay Street said he was now in touch with the owners of the building who were deciding what to do with the property.
A sign posted on Friday said: "The landlords have today effected a peaceable re-entry into 28 Barton Street, Bath.
"All enquiries to Derek Walker (Chartered Surveyor)."
The restaurant has been run since 1986 by Andrew Robinson, who had been a customer for the previous 12 years, and it had become a favourite with visitors to the nearby Theatre Royal.
Another well-known and long-standing city restaurant, the Moon and Sixpence closed in March, but its Milsom Place premises have been taken over by the Cote chain.
