“So you may be aware that the building we are in is up for sale and we have been given notice to vacate,” says a post on the Mad Hunter Morecambe Bay Facebook page.

"We will still be open for the next few months and will keep you updated.

“Luckily for us an opportunity has arisen and we will be opening a brand new cocktail bar and restaurant in Lancaster city centre in May."

The plan is to expand the menu from being purely South African to include international food and drink, brunch, dinner and a range of cocktails.

“The whole team here will eventually make the move over to Marula Monkey,” adds the Facebook post.

“We would all like to thank you all for your valued support and hope you’ll continue to support us in the future.”
