The Best In The West:


The River Café | Hammersmith

The River Cafe

West London is often mocked for being less rapidly evolving than its Eastern counterpart. But that’s probably because it’s busy nurturing the award-winning eateries that have been flying the flag for great British restaurants for over 30 years. READ MORE.

Details: Thames Wharf, Rainville Rd, Hammersmith, West London, W6 9HA | ££££


The Ledbury | Notting Hill

The Ledbury

A simple, set-price menu of classic British fine-dining in the heart of Notting Hill. The Ledbury has climbed worldwide restaurant rankings every year since its inception, and currently sits 10th with two Michelin Stars. READ MORE.

Details: 127 Ledbury Rd, Notting Hill, W11 2AQ ££££


The Shed | Notting Hill

Details: 122 Palace Gardens Terrace, Notting Hill, West London, W8 4RT | ££££


Claude Bosi At Bibendum | South Kensington

Claude Bosi Bibendum

It’s Modern European fine-dining courtesy of the illustrious Claude Bosi. You’ll find it in the former Michelin tire factory (hands down the best looking building in South Ken). Here, Bosi and his team are cooking up the likes of Basque pork with parsley root, winter mushrooms, and black liquorice, earning themselves not one but two Michelin stars within a matter of months.

Arguably some of the best steak and seafood in London, in a chic, Art Deco setting. READ MORE.

Core by Clare Smyth | Notting Hill

Clare Smyth was the first female British chef to net three Michelin stars when she headed up Gordon Ramsay’s eponymous joint – so to say it’s of interest that she’s finally opened her own place is an understatement. READ MORE.

Details: 92 Kensington Park Road, W11 2PN ££££


Dinner By Heston | Knightsbridge

Dinner By Heston

Your double Michelin-starred dinner at Dinner will take inspiration from dishes through the centuries, with a little help from Heston’s wacky creativity (this ‘orange’ is actually meat), a very old recipe book, and a historically accurate pineapple roasting pulley. READ MORE.

Details: Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, 66 Knightsbridge, SW1X 7LA | £££££


Endo At The Rotunda | White City 

Endo At The Rotunda

It’s Michelin-starred sushi served up in an intimate, 24-seater restaurant on the 8th floor of White City’s Television Centre. READ MORE.

Details: 8th Floor, The Helios, Television Centre, 101 Wood Lane, W12 7FR | ££££

Details: 6 Old Court Place, Kensington, W8 4PL | £££


Elystan Street | Chelsea

Elystan Street

Laurelled chef Phil Howard is calling this place his “last hurrah”. Which means you should waste no time in going in to experience his glorious seasonal dishes, served up in a surprisingly pared-back space for the area. READ MORE.
