Internationally acclaimed chef Roy Ner is relatively new to the London restaurant scene, having just arrived in July 2021. Acclaimed in Australia, where he spent 18 years establishing his culinary credentials and enjoying a life-long passion for food and drink, he turned his sights onto London when he opened his Mayfair Mediterranean restaurant, Jeru, in the winter of 2021.

Jeru offers a restaurant with an open kitchen and chef’s table, crudo station and Jeru fish market. Layla’s DJ and dining experience with ambient live music and an artisanal bakery that transforms into a wine bar at night. By the late Autumn of 2023, he launched two additional private dining spaces on an upper storey of the building, marking the end of a sensitive two-year transformation. Formerly offices, the addition of this third floor makes Jeru Mayfair’s one of the largest restaurants, with over 1,400 square metres of beautifully designed dining space showcasing both the design and the cuisine of the Mediterranean.

An exceptional Cordon Bleu-trained chef, Roy has a lifelong passion for all things gastronomic and is known for experimenting with innovative new flavour combinations and textures drawn from his eclectic heritage. His mixed heritage has exposed him to a myriad of exotic tastes, herbs and spices from the North African region and the countries circling the Mediterranean Sea. He particularly loves to highlight flavours from traditional and modern cooking, blending cultures and ingredients together to showcase a unique culinary style based on a variety of cooking techniques. His recipes are based on grilling, roasting, long bread fermentations, and ageing ingredients using various methods, from chocolate wet-aged beef to dry-aged vegetables, from koji to fenugreek spice. He also seeks out the more flavoursome exotic herbs and spices to celebrate raw ingredients.

Chef Roy enjoys creating a wide range of wholesome, welcoming, and tasty vegetarian dishes, as well as a treasure trove of seafood-based and aromatic meat-based dishes. Roy is an Ambassador for Australian Beef.
Roy regularly makes appearances at the Ideal Home Show. He is also a judge on the Young Chef Young Waiter Competition.
