Like Instagramming your food? This British restaurant won't let you do it

New Delhi: While clicking pictures of your delicious meals before digging into them and uploading the images on social media has become a trend of sorts, a British restaurant has decided to put an end to the practice.

A famous restaurant in Britain has actually banned its diners from clicking pics of their food.

As per a report in The Independent, The Waterside Inn has put up a sign asking diners not to photograph their food.

The restaurant was founded by Michel Roux and his brother Albert in 1972.

"I'm really getting so upset about people taking pictures. We put up a card at the door – 'No photos, please.' the report quoted Roux saying.

Roux feels that a photograph cannot bring out the real essence of the flavours. The restaurant is now run by Roux's son, Alain. Albert's son, Michel Roux Jr, is chef-patron at the family's other temple to fine dining, Le Gavroche, and is more relaxed about customers photographing the food.

The Waterside Inn has held three Michelin stars since 1985.

A food trends report issued last year by Waitrose found that one-third of those aged 18 to 34 regularly post pictures of their meals on social media.

Numerous studies have also shown how posting images of food on social media influences our eating habits.

In 2014 a group of top chefs in France launched a campaign to ban the practice all together, claiming that it spoiled the atmosphere of eating out.
