Set to open in late September, Jackson Boxer’s residency will bolster Selfridges’ roster of restaurants, which bring customers together to dine and socialise as part of the shopping experience. Located in Women’s Designer Galleries on the second floor, the light and elegant dining spot with views over the West End is the perfect retreat for casual dining.
Within its curated dining destinations, Selfridges combines its commitment to creativity, sustainability, and innovation. The menu at Jackson Boxer at The Corner will include:

Jackson Boxer says: “Selfridges fascinates me. I love the scale, the crowds, the way it smells, the way it sounds, the smooth constant glide of those crisscrossing escalators. I’m enormously excited to take over The Corner at Selfridges and revitalize this beautiful jewel in one of London’s most iconic and glamorous institutions.”
Boxer opened Brunswick House in his early twenties and has spent the last decade building it up to one of the most interesting and distinctive restaurants in the city. He opened Orasay in 2019, which is now regarded as one of the best seafood restaurants in the capital, as well as directing the kitchen at the newly reopened Cowley Manor in the Cotswolds. His cooking is bold, concentrated, thoughtful and delicious, focusing on the simple presentation of ingredients at the peak of their season, prepared with care and attention.
At Jackson Boxer at The Corner, Jackson’s dishes will be served on Serax “La Mère” tableware by Marie Michielssen. Serax is a Belgian design brand, creating contemporary homeware in collaboration with leading international designers and makers.
