Closure Announcement and Reasons:

A well-liked restaurant in Swansea, The Smoke Haus, has made the unfortunate decision to close its doors, citing the unsustainability of their business.


The establishment, known for its American smokehouse BBQ cuisine, revealed through a statement on their social media page that Sunday, June 18 would mark their final day of operation in Swansea.

Rising costs and the perceived decline of Swansea city centre were identified as the primary factors contributing to this difficult resolution.

The Smoke Haus had been an integral part of the Swansea community for over a decade, operating on Wind Street.

Continuation in Cardiff and Appreciation for Support:

Despite the closure of their Swansea branch, The Smoke Haus assured their customers that their Cardiff location would remain open for business.

Expressing gratitude for the support received over the years, the restaurant extended heartfelt thanks to their loyal patrons.

The statement highlighted the remarkable ten-year journey in Swansea and acknowledged the tremendous support from the community.


Challenges Faced:

In their statement, The Smoke Haus outlined the reasons behind their closure.

They lamented the exorbitant costs of utilities, unreasonable car park charges, the overall cost of living, and the gradual decline of Swansea’s city centre.

These factors collectively rendered their business model unsustainable, leading to the heartbreaking decision to cease operations in Swansea.

Future Prospects and Farewell:

While bidding farewell to Swansea, The Smoke Haus expressed their intention to continue serving customers in Cardiff.

They encouraged their loyal patrons to visit their Cardiff establishment, expressing their eagerness to welcome them once again.

The restaurant owners, Jayne, Mark, and Owen, concluded their statement with profound gratitude for the support received throughout the years, signing off with a heartfelt message of appreciation and love.

Impacts on the Restaurant Industry:

The Smoke Haus is not alone in facing the challenges brought about by rising costs.

The closure of two prominent restaurants in Cardiff last month further highlighted the ongoing crisis surrounding the cost of living, as businesses grapple with financial viability.


Looking Ahead:

As the hospitality industry continues to navigate a difficult operating landscape, the closure of The Smoke Haus serves as a reminder of the hurdles faced by restaurants in sustaining their businesses.

The impact of rising costs and changing city dynamics emphasizes the need for ongoing support and creative solutions to ensure the long-term vitality of local dining establishments.
