Ulverston restaurant closes it doors

A POPULAR Ulverston restaurant has closed its doors for good.

Have your say

Some completely ill informed comments about this. Rustique has sadly failed to maintain its once high standards of service despite having once been easily the best restaurant in the area. Poor service at top prices? I'll take my money elsewhere thanks very much, and it looks like I wasn't the only one. I was a regular customer, happy to pay over £100 for a meal for two, but these places have to move with the times if they want to charge top whack, and Rustique didn't. Absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any supermarket plans.

Poor Ulverston is going face down into the gutter.

Ulverston just has not the population to service a good restaurant or even a take-away. When Amrket day was a big deal and lots of peole flooded in once a week, then possibly but now they do not. Rents are high due to rapacious landlords and so unless something changes, more small business will be going to the wall.

I don't visit Ulverston regularly but do visit around 4 times a year, normally on a Thursday or Saturday. Every time I come the town seems to have died that little bit more. Market days used to be so busy it was unbelievable compared to today.

There is so little left in the town now it is a sad shadow of what used to be there. Even the market, which used to be fantastic, is in a sorry state.

The "Keep Ulverston Special" people need to realise that there is nothing special left to keep, unless there is something to attract people in the rest of the town will continue to wither and die.

Tesco closed down probably every small business in Barrow. Now look at what on most corners, Tesco Express/metro! It’s all part of the master plan!!

Aside from the fact that there are obviously some people on here who really don't get sarcasm, I am really disappointed that Rustique has closed. As it was so expensive, it was difficult for me to go any more than a couple of times a year, but it was a real treat when I did and I think it is a huge loss to the town. What other decent restaurants are there? You don't always want to eat in a pub!

I thought I had put Countdown on Series Link to be recorded each day as I like to watch at midnight when the rabbits have been put to sleep & I can count bacon rashers in the fridge, ready for the following morning. The series link failed, & I am without Countdown this evening.
Why were these things not taken into consideration before we allowed this supermarket planning permission?
It beggars belief, I can tell you.

I am really sad to see this lovely and wonderful business closed - the food was amazing and the owners always nice. Unfortunatly this is what is happening in Ulverston and will continue for the whole of this year. The town is just too dead and has been now for at least two years. I run a business and I too will be shutting shortly due to how bad it is getting I also know that at least 10 other businesses in the town will be shutting (mostly all shops) Those people who believe these supermarkets will cause disaster for the town are in dreamland - the town will be a ghost town before these are built so it wont make any difference. Maybe all the shops should close and then we could have a huge supermarket in the town centre!

Blimey! Due to the serious lack of understanding of irony, and just a hint of sarcasm, I will explain my comment. The Deli shut, so KUS immediately sprang up saying it was due to the impending arrival of a supermarket??? What a load of pretentious bo**ox!!...So I thought I'd get it in first!! To my way of thinking if you set yourself up in business selling goods or services then it must be something people want to buy, at a price they can afford? Other than that, then you will fail! How hard can it be??
