Jackson + Rye closes fourth restaurant in just over a year

Related tags: Restaurant, Cote, Casual dining

Cote has closed the original Jackson + Rye restaurant in Soho after five years of trading.

The site is believed to have been sold to a Middle East-based owner, which a spokesperson said was remaining 'anonymous', and will reopen as American-inspired restaurant and bar Martha’s later this month.

Cote bought Jackson + Rye and all-day group Limeyard from serial restaurateur Richard Caring for an undisclosed sum in 2016​,​ with the intention to expand both concepts.

But the company was reported to be revaluating both brands​ in May last year, blaming “well-documented headwinds” hitting the sector.

Jackson + Rye closed sites in Guildford, Chiswick and Kingston​ in 2018, and pulled out of opening in Birmingham in late 2017 after failing to reach a deal with the landlord.

It is left with two remaining London restaurants, in Richmond and the City.

Limeyard currently operates two sites, in Ealing and Staines.
