The Rainbow Inn, a restaurant in Cooksbridge,East Sussex, has ended its partnership with Marco Pierre White.
The pub has reverted to traditional pub fare, rather than the fine-dining food it was previously offering in response to customer demand, according to a report in local paper, The Argus.
Pierre White's departure was described as "amicable".
A spokesman from the pub said: "Marco has taken his business interests elsewhere. He was a partner in the business but is a partner in the business no longer.
"We will have a cosy bar area as people really liked the bar area."
