Mrs Smethurst said: "Shooters will continue as its quirky self with no changes to food or service and you can expect to see the same faces serving as you do currently.

"Although the new place will be different it goes without saying that customers can still expect home made food cooked fresh to order at reasonable prices.

"We have been extremely lucky to have received so much support for Shooters and hope that people get behind the new venture in the same way."

Shooters will remain open on the riverside in March and opening hours are not set to change, a new menu is also set to be launched in the coming weeks.
