Chez Bruce, the Michelin-starred restaurant in Wandsworth, London, has banned smoking. Bruce Pool, the restaurant’s owner, said: "We gave the decision a hell of a lot of thought, but we have only had a few complaints and there has been no impact on covers. I believe it is the only way forward." London Mayor Ken Livingstone said: "Recent polls of Londoners show... support for a ban strongest in cafes and restaurants, and with less support in relation to bars and pubs."
