Michelin-starred Wilks closes permanently

Britain’s Michelin-starred restaurant Wilks has announced it will not reopen.

In a statement on the restaurant’s website, the restaurant’s owners, James Wilkins and Christine Vayssade, said: “Due to the coronavirus, Covid-19 pandemic, we closed the restaurant back in March 2020. Despite the announcement of the government allowing us to reopen, we have decided not to do so. It has been an absolute joy running our restaurant. Wilks’s success is undoubtedly associated with the amazing people we have met and worked with over the years.“ Wilks, which opened in 2012 and won the Michelin star a year later, told its fans: “Many guests, suppliers and members of the team have become friends and we thank all of you who have been a part of this experience. We will miss you!”
