Alas, the Diner is done - Stroud restaurant run by TV star makes shock announcement

Stroud's slice of 1950s America is no more as with a poetic twist the owners of The Diner in Nelson

Street have announced the eatery is going to close.

In an announcement on Facebook, the owners said that "Alas the dinner is done" before thanking staff and customers.

Opened in 2017 by artist and actor Tamzin Malleson it served burgers, hot dogs, milkshakes and a number of classic US-style deserts.

Ms Malleson, the partner of TV star Keith Allen was also co-owner of the Marshall Rooms nightclub next door. That closed in October last year.

The news of the Diner's demise was confirmed in a poem on facebook.

"Alas, the Diner is done!

"Gone is the glory of the knickerbocker.

"No bananas are to be split.

"The vegan dogs are now running free.

"And the cows are having a party on the common."
