A Teesside restaurant has been relisted on a property-selling website months after a for sale sign was spotted outside its doors.

Meet at 12, located on Harland Place in Norton, Stockton has been listed for sale at £450,000 on Rightmove.

The restaurant and bar reportedly went on sale in May this year, less than a year after it was announced the business would be opening on the site.

At the time, a spokesperson for Meet at 12 cited the current financial climate as a key factor in deciding to close the venue.

They said: "It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the closure of Meet at 12's restaurant operations for the foreseeable future.

"These challenging times have undeniably taken a toll on the hospitality industry, and unfortunately, the current financial climate has made it unfeasible for us to continue regular restaurant operations.

"We understand the impact this decision may have on our loyal customers, and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.

"We would also like to inform you that any Meet at 12 vouchers you may have will be redeemable against food and drinks at The Scruffy Duck.

"We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to visit The Scruffy Duck and continue to support Norton."

The restaurant is owned by businessman Barry Faulkner, who also owns other Norton businesses such as Canteen and Cocktails, The Scruffy Duck, and Banh Mi.

The area is situated near the High Street and offers a mix of residential and commercial areas, including shops, restaurants, and pubs.
