Northampton's Paparazzi to become a Thai restaurant

A Buckinghamshire couple have bought the Paparazzi Mediterranean restaurant in Northampton which was opened two years ago by local restaurateur Alan Dutt.

Don Merrick and his wife from Milton Keynes already own a Thai restaurant in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, and intend to convert the Paparzzi into their second Thai eaterie.

Paparazzi occupies a landmark building in Bridge Street near the town centre which has served in the past as a boys' school and a museum of leathercraft.

The three-storey, end-of-terrace property can seat 38 diners across two floors, with seating for another 38 in the rear courtyard. It also features a ground level bar, a cellar and second-floor storage space.

The Milton Keynes office of Christie + Co sold the restaurant for close to the asking price of £120,000 for the new 25-year lease.
