Jeru London: Somewhere where you are transported to another place. A place where you can enjoy all the great things in life, in a new louche London lifestyle destination. This new immersive multi-sensory experience also happens to be at one of London’s most exclusive addresses in Mayfair.
Jeru was a place of nomadic tribal people where many different cultures collided – a true melting pot that encapsulates the smells, flavours, ingredients and traditions of over 3000-years. The food and vibe at Jeru has drawn inspiration from this and Chef Roy Ner has placed discovery and exploration at the heart of the Jeru gastronomic journey.
11 Berkeley Street, Mayfair. Steeped in history and moments from the 18th century Berkeley Square, Jeru London is in the very core and heart of Mayfair. In an area rich in luxury and history, Jeru will take you on a historical tour de force through the Mediterranean in a space that is cosy yet exciting to discover. With a restaurant, lounge bar, 1000 bottle wine wall, secret door and other little intimate areas to probe, Jeru will give you a sense of homely zen and in the next breath ignite your inner animal. This is the members’ club you always wanted without those extortionate fees.

Jeru London through the senses
Jeru is an electric collision of cultures, technique and passion like you have never seen before and this is reflected in the unique food offering. Headed up by award winning celebrity chef Roy Ner, the restaurant will take you on a journey of flavours in a world class restaurant that takes inspiration from Roy’s travels, life as well as focusing on Levantine flavours. Cooked over a charcoal spit, the focus will be on brilliant ingredients cooked in front of you in an open kitchen. Chef Ner will also be perfecting a vegetarian paradise full of new dishes that will delight and surprise.
In the restaurant, a bespoke herb chandelier hangs over the stairs with tables that face the open kitchen. Menu highlights include: Charcoal octopus, cuttlefish ragu, black spinach, chilli; Langoustine Murtabak, labneh, chili, smoked eel salsa; Charcoal roast aubergine, macadamia milk, dry aged smoked lamb; Yemenite butter bread and much more will be on offer.
Look out for menu items that haven’t been seen before in the UK; Angus rump basturma and lamb and fennel salami will be served, as well as the first lamb bacon in collaboration with Hammond Charcuterie, with more artisan speciality meats coming soon from Jeru.
Let’s not forget mixology – The Layla bar is mysterious, seductive and edgy. This is the room where Mayfair comes alive into the night with Med inspired cocktail creations, a vast champagne list and more. Layla overlooks the ultra-chic sunken lounge that will transform into a high energy dining concept at night.
The whole entertainment experience is a delight to the eyes. You are surrounded by high fashion throughout and not forgetting the Mediterranean heritage through thick vintage fabrics, Jerusalem Stone walls, mosaic tiles, gorgeous aged copper and clay pottery.
Hear the sounds of laughter, enjoyment and real hospitality. You can mingle and party into the night surrounded by DJs, bongo players as well as roaming violins and saxophones.
Expect a few surprises along the way like the Hammams, the 1001 Arabian Nights inspired bathrooms where you can experience a house Jeru scent created just for them by Fragrance Du Bois.
Walls will be constantly adorned by established and emerging artists while music will come courtesy of London and New York’s most sought after DJs.
