Michel and Alain Roux are to open a restaurant within a new residential development close to their three-Michelin-starred Waterside Inn restaurant in Bray, Berkshire.
Roux at Skindles will form part of a new Berkeley development called Taplow Riverside, situated on a site once occupied by Skindles hotel. The project will include 139 residential properties and a 60 unit care home as well as the new restaurant.
Opening in Autumn 2018, Roux at Skindles will be overseen by Alain Roux, who is chef-patron at the Waterside Inn, with a brasserie menu that offers a more informal dining experience than its lauded sister site.
Roux Sr told the Telegraph he was persuaded to join the project due to its idyllic location.
He said: "It will be totally different to our other establishments. It has the best situation on the river, will overlook a beautiful bridge and have a lovely terrace.
