The Ledbury

The Ledbury

Modern European | West London

One of the few London restaurants to make it as far as the top 10 of the World's 50 Best, this is often cited to us by fellow foodies as their favourite place in town. Fronted by Brett Graham it manages to mix high-end Michelin-starred food with a relaxed service, while still keeping the locals happy too.

"The Ledbury is far better than I remember it. The cooking is refined and calm. It resists unnecessary exclamations or startling contradictions. It doesn’t test your palate or demand attention. It just is a very good lunch, at a hefty price." READ REVIEW

"Graham’s food is both bold and complex. It’s hard to imagine many of these dishes as a conventional main course: the seven-course tasting menu seemed to me more a logical choice for these plates composed of small parcels and contrasting components." READ REVIEW

"Far from setting up a Square Mark II and gunning for Michelin stars using the tried and tested recipes of his old boss, Brett Graham's food at the Ledbury is unique - as characterful and intelligently experimental, and most importantly delicious, as any other restaurant in London, even the Square which (whisper it) almost seems slightly po-faced and dated in comparison."

"What sets Platts-Martin apart from the Michelin pack is that his restaurants replicate the intricacy and lavishness of the à la carte stuff in set menus at a fraction of the cost." READ REVIEW

"...quibbles apart, this was serious, grown-up food, from a kitchen that seemed to be running like a Rolls-Royce, and only a couple of weeks after opening." READ REVIEW
