Camilla Fayed’s Farmacy to close

Camilla Fayed’s high-profile plant-based restaurant Farmacy in Westbourne Grove is closing after eight years on Sunday 7 July.

No reason has been given for the move. When contacted at the restaurant, a spokesperson said the business’s external events catering arm would remain in operation and an announcement would be made later this year concerning a reopening at another venue.

Camilla, daughter of the late Harrods owner and billionaire Mohamed Fayed, opened Farmacy in a blaze of publicity in 2016. The restaurant has attracted a string of celeb diners from Kate Moss to Madonna, with actors Woody Harrelson and Benedict Cumberbatch spotted having a “man-date” together.

The restaurant is supplied by Camilla’s biodynamic farm in Kent, and earned a more-than-respectable score of 434 for food, service and ambience in the 2024 Harden’s guide, which noted: “You can certainly tell [Camilla] has sunk millions into this place – it’s really rather pretty, and the enormous central bar is impressive”.
