Heston Blumenthal has said that gaining the number one spot at the 2005 S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Awards helped save The Fat Duck from closure.

In an interview for BigHospitality, Blumenthal admitted that his restaurant in Bray was close to going “belly up” if cash flow didn’t improve.

But after winning the World’s 50 Best Awards in 2005, along with his decision to start doing TV work and the addition of a third Michelin star, helped the chef regain control of his business.
