George Porchester, heir to Highclere castle, has opened his first London restaurant in Putney.

Jules serves an ‘unpretentious menu’ based around tapas-style dishes such as cod brandade with roast green peppers; pork cheek salad; and salmon, fennel and caramelised onion pizza.

It is the first restaurant from Porchester, heir to the Earl of Carnavon, whose family owns the castle which doubles as Downton Abbey in the television series.

The 50-cover all-day restaurant is also open for breakfast and brunch, offering a selection of gourmet pizzas, charcuterie and cheese.

“We hope that in Jules, people will find a place that they can drop into at any time and with anyone,” said Porchester.

“We intend to be informal, honest and accessible, somewhere that guests will want to recommend and return to again and again, for the consistently great quality of food and service.”

Jules is open Tuesday – Sunday from 9am till late.
