Greg Emmerson, runner-up on BBC One’s Masterchef, opened Table 22 at the Old House Hotel in December as part of a £250,000 revamp for the venue under new owners GA Gourmet.

He said: ‘I am no longer involved with the restaurant Table22 at The Old House Hotel in Wickham Square. I wish them well.’ 

A statement from a company director said the menu had changed and that the venue was open with plans to expand. They said: ‘It is business as usual.’
