A popular Chinese restaurant which has been in Marlow for more than 50 years will close its doors next month.

In a social media post, an announcement from the restaurant said: “It is with great regret that we need to inform you that Sun Ya will be closing after May 4, 2019.

“We have had a fantastic 55-year run in Marlow and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers over the last five-and-a-half decades.”

The news prompted residents to mourn the loss of the Oxford Road restaurant on social media, with many saying the eatery would be “greatly missed”.

Sun Ya is currently ranked 42nd out of 56 restaurants in Marlow on review site Trip Advisor, with the most recent review praising the "interesting" menu.

The restaurant holds a five-star hygiene rating after being inspected on September 27 last year.
