Jonathan Brown's Du Cane restaurant in liquidation

A restaurant owned by chef Jonathan Brown, who worked under the likes of Marco Pierre White, Raymond Blanc and John Burton Race before setting on his own, has closed.

The Du Cane restaurant in Great Braxted, Essex, shut its doors after going into liquidation last month.

Brown set the business up three years ago, and it won several awards including accolades at the Essex Food & Drink Awards in 2010 and 2011, as well as at the Essex Life Fine Food and Drink Awards.

A statement from the restaurant said: "As of 21 December 2012 the Du Cane has gone into liquidation and are no longer able to trade. This means all bookings made from 21 December onwards are cancelled. We are so sorry for any inconvenience caused, especially over this Christmas period."
