Marcus Wareing will close his eponymous restaurant Marcus at The Berkeley in Knightsbridge later this year.

The Michelin star restaurant’s last service will be on 26 December.

In a statement it said: “After over 20 successful years of operating a restaurant at The Berkeley in Knightsbridge, Marcus Wareing and the hotel have mutually agreed on a change of direction.”

“The Berkeley has provided me with the most extraordinary platform over the last 20 years. As a chef and restaurateur, it’s allowed me and my team to create some incredible and lasting memories,” says Wareing.

“However, it’s now time for me to move on. I am not retiring quite yet, though - not at all. I’m ready for a new and exciting chapter to begin. I will update on our plans for 2024 in due course.”

Wareing has run the restaurant at the hotel since 2003, first when it was home to Gordon Ramsay’s Pétrus and later as Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley when he took it over in 2008.

The restaurant relaunched in 2014 under its current name. It held two stars in 2007 but was downgraded to a one-star rating​ in the 2019 Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland.

“We want to take this opportunity to thank Marcus and his teams over the years, for everything they have contributed to The Berkeley’s culinary legacy,” says The Berkeley’s general manager Knut Wylde.

“We look forward to seeing what new exciting adventures lie ahead for him and his wife Jane and of course wish them the very best for the future.”

The Berkeley will announce its new restaurant plans in due course.
