Robyn Roux, wife of Michel, has died

Robyn Roux, the wife of chef Michel Roux, owner of the three-Michelin-star Waterside Inn in Bay, Berkshire, has died following a two-year illness. She was 66.

The couple met in Sydney in Robyn’s native Australia in 1982 and soon after she moved to the UK. She originally studied drama and later worked in restaurants as a self-taught cook.

Robyn played an active role at the Waterside Inn, including overseeing the interior design and looking after the staff.

She has been described by Michel Roux as his inspiration and support over their 35 years together.

Robyn and Michel are pictured here in May 2015 at the Waterside Inn, celebrating 30 years of the restaurant holding three Michelin stars.

The hospitality industry took to Twitter to express their condolences to Michel Roux.
