A FAMILY-RUN cafe in a historic Scottish town has closed after 63 years in business.

The Grain, located in the East Lothian town of Haddington, is closing after manager Ricky Morga announced his retirement after 45 years running the business. Morga took over the cafe from his parents, delighting locals with its Italian cuisine.

The Grain’s Facebook page made the announcement, writing: "After 63 years at 14 High Street, the time has come for Ricky to hang up his pinny for once and for all.
