Crown at Whitebrook closure: Stephen Terry's sadness

One of Wales' top restaurants has been forced to close because of financial difficulties.

Staff at the Michelin-starred Crown at Whitebrook, in Abergavenny, blamed the snow and freezing weather stopping customers from dining there in recent months as well as the state of the economy.

The Crown was named the best restaurant in Wales in The Sunday Times Food List 2012.

Stephen Terry, who runs the nearby Hardwick restaurant, and was a finalist on the BBC's Great British Menu, spoke to Bethan Rhys Roberts and Oliver Hides on Good Morning Wales.
