A POPULAR North Ayrshire business has shut up shop until the end of this month.

The Rowan Tree Garden Centre and Restaurant is to remain closed for the remainder of January as staff take a well earned break following a busy 2023.

Last orders were called on Sunday, January 14, at the Ardrossan eatery - with staff not due to return until Wednesday, January 31.

The busy diner and garden centre - located on the shore road between Ardrossan and West Kilbride - will be back up and running at 10am that morning.

After closing earlier this week, the business owners thanked their staff and customers for another fantastic year.

They said: "It's been a super busy weekend, thank you to everyone who visited! Your support as always, is very much appreciated.

"That's us officially on our annual January holiday. Thank you to our team - we hope you all enjoy your well deserved break.

"We'll be back bright eyed and bushy tailed on Wednesday, January 31!"
