A POPULAR burger restaurant is closing after six years.

Monty’s Lounge is shutting its Pokesdown branch on Saturday, although its other restaurant in central Bournemouth will remain open.

In a post on its Facebook page, the business said: “It is with a heavy heart that we announce the end of what has been a crazy near six years for Monty’s in Pokesdown.

“We will be having one last blowout on Saturday December 8 before closing the doors and [it] would be great to see as many of you as possible.

“You can still get your burger fix in town where we will be launching a new menu very soon.”

It added: “Thank you to the loyal regulars for sticking by us and supporting a small independent through the years, it has been a pleasure and a privilege cooking up thousands of tasty burgers for you all.”
