Coming soon to Theatre Royal Drury Lane

Posted 1st May 2023

Jamie Oliver, chef, author and child health campaigner, has confirmed he will open a new restaurant in London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane, later this year.

Madeleine Lloyd Webber says: “We are delighted that, in opening this restaurant, the final part of our vision for Theatre Royal Drury Lane has come to fruition. We are thrilled that Jamie Oliver will be operating a restaurant as part of our 5* theatre experience. Our glorious theatre is open all day every day for everyone to enjoy the art and its glorious architecture, as well as luxury Afternoon Teas, cocktails and theatre tours. Jamie Oliver’s restaurant brings the final touch to Andrew and my dream for an all-day destination at Theatre Royal Drury Lane.”

Jamie Oliver adds, “I was devastated when I lost my UK restaurants. Without doubt, it was one of the hardest times of my life. But being part of the restaurant industry is very important to me and I’m very excited to open this restaurant and once again, serve the public.” He adds, “ The menu will celebrate the amazing food I grew up cooking in my mum and dad’s pub restaurant. It’s about going back to my culinary roots and celebrating Britain’s amazing food in what I hope will be an iconic restaurant in a very special place. This opportunity truly means the world to me. “

The new restaurant promises to be a popular destination that celebrates everything that’s wonderful about Britain’s rich and diverse food culture with a seasonal menu that champions the best of British produce. Food will be sourced from the farmers, sustainable fisheries and artisan producers that Jamie has known and worked with for years, from Creedy Carver who will supply free range chickens and ducks to Cobble Lane Cured to name but a few. The restaurant will also champion emerging talent who bring a fresh perspective to high quality, sustainable food and drink with real provenance.

The new restaurant will open towards the end of the year.
