Louis and Andrew Macrides have owned and run the seafront spot for just over 20 years and on Saturday will say farewell to their loyal customers.

Louis, aged 46, said their responsibilities have changed now they are both fathers and said it is time to let someone else take the reins of the music bar in Beach Road.

He said: “Me and Andrew to not have the time to look after this place any more.
