A popular dessert store has announced its closure just eight months after it opened in Bexleyheath.

Big Waffle Garage in Bexleyheath Broadway opened in April promising to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner - but has announced a shock closure.

According to the Garage's Facebook page, which has since been deleted, the store has made the decision not to reopen this year.

In a statement, Big Waffle Garage said: "We regret to inform you that we will not be here in 2018! It has been a great eight months and we have had a wonderful time. We hope you enjoyed being our guests! Yet we had to close it down which was not an easy decision to make."

The shop did not open yesterday, according to Broadway management.

On Tripadvisor, the Waffle Garage has a five-star review - one person said it was a "friendly venue with lovely food."
