A TAKEAWAY food business has shut down at its town centre location as it needs somewhere where customers can sit down.

Heather Jones set up Ruby T's Aga Kitchen in November 2022 where she was selling homemade Aga-cooked food, made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

She was serving the food up from the kitchen at the Masonic Lodge in High Street, but has said she has now closed down with immediate effect.


She said she needs a new place where people can sit down after an initial deal with a neighbouring coffee lounge falling through.

Ms Jones said the Masonic Lodge had been "amazing" and "very kind" and she will continue to be the chef.

She said: "I have never had one bad review and the community has been an amazing support."

From the High Street building, named after her grandmother Ruby Thompson, she offered takeaways, including vegetarian and vegan options.


Announcing the closure, she said: "It is with great sadness that Ruby T’s takeaway will be closed with immediate effect.

"I shall still be available to complete catering, events, and chef services for private functions within your home, Aga demonstrations and cooking classes.

"I apologise for any inconvenience. I will miss seeing you all.

Thank you to all my repeat customers and everyone who has supported me."
