Roux at Parliament Square restaurant in London's Westminster has announced its permanent closure.

Groves joined Roux at Parliament Square, initially as sous chef, in 2010 having served previously as sous chef of Launceston Place in Kensington.

After continuing to work at Launceston Place for a spell, Groves took up the opportunity to work with MasterChef judge Michel Roux Jr and his father Albert at the Westminster restaurant in 2010.
