THERE is mixed reaction to the closure on July 4 of The Treacle Mine at Polegate.

Many are sad:

Michael Morgan posted: “Shame – nice meal good service, what a shame for Polegate.”

Courtney Coleman said: “Such a shame – our favourite local restaurant. Has always been amazing for our children with allergies, huge loss to our local town!”

But Hal Kaye said: “I feel sorry for the people who might lose their jobs, but it was one of the worst restaurants around, in my opinion, so I’m not sorry it’s closing.”
