Located in London’s Holland Park and originally opened in 1969, Julie’s is due to reopen in September this year. A firm favourite among locals in the area, Julie’s has also welcomed its fair share of high society and celebrity names including The Rolling Stones, Princess Diana of Wales and Paul McCartney.

After closing in Spring 2016, the restaurant has undergone extensive refurbishment under the watchful eye of interior-designer Julie Hodgess, the original owner of the restaurant, ensuring the classic stained-glass windows and other iconic characteristics will be favourably retained.

The establishment has appointed Michelin-starred Shay Cooper as Chef Patron, serving a menu of modern British cuisine. Some featured dishes are the Glazed Ox Cheek and Aged Sirloin of Beef. Cooper commented on the reopening of the restaurant, saying, “I am excited to contribute to preserving and building upon the legacy of the restaurant, which cares about its neighbourhood. Julie’s has always had a loyal following for its ambience and atmosphere, and it is my ambition for the restaurant to gain a reputation for great food.”

The property’s owners Tim and Cathy Herring, who have been behind the restaurant since 1972, are excited to see their grandson Ralph Herring joining Cooper as Chef de Partie.

Julie’s, known for its celebratory atmosphere, looks forward to welcoming back existing fans and previous regulars while also introducing a new generation to the restaurant.
