Towards the end of 2021 small signs were stuck to the windows of a restaurant in Orange advising customers that the establishment - best-known for its steaks, curly chips and mega sundaes - was closed for "equipment maintenance and repairs".


However it never reopened, and now it's on the market.

The Hog's Breath Café on Lords Place is for sale with an asking price for the business of $785,000 plus training costs ($6,600) and stock.


On August 26 last year the café was still advertising home delivery on social media.


"Tired of cooking and cleaning up dishes! Well, we've got the solution....Hog's home delivery! Enjoy a great, restaurant cooked, home meal at your place from Hog's!"




However its only post since that date was in October, advising the restaurant had shut.
