Tomfoolery at 34 has announced its closure just five and a half months after opening its doors.
The eccentric and quirky restaurant, which recently described itself on Twitter as "the most wacky place in town" was the brainchild of Alderley Edge resident Manzur Iqbal.
Manzur spent 18 months transforming the former Alderley Rose Chinese restaurant which his father Iqbal Ahmed, Chairman of Seamark Group, purchased.
Along with Laura Burgess, they spent months sourcing the interiors from ebay, warehouses and car boot sales - including mix and match antique sofas and armchairs, old gaming machines, an old TV and typewriter, plus an eclectic collection of lamps, suitcases, ornaments and memorabilia.
Whilst chef Brice Moore, who had previously worked at Manchester House, celebrity chef Michael Caines' Gidleigh Park in Devon and Paul Ainsworth at No 6 in Padstow, created a unique menu with everything handmade on the premises.
We have been unable to obtain a comment from Tomfoolery regarding the reason for their closure and future plans for 34 London Road, although they have posted the following message on their Facebook page:
"What a great Xmas! shattered. Thank you all for coming to our pop up boutique. We hope we brought something new and heartfelt to Alderley Edge hopefully your experience with us made you younger and made you remember the simpler times.
