The Ledbury

The Ledbury | A Fine Dining Institution

One of London’s finest fine dining restaurants has made its much-anticipated return to the capital after a pandemic-induced break of nearly two years.

So please join us in giving a warm hand to The Ledbury, whose supremely classy monochrome dining room, fantastic produce-led tasting menu (lovingly dreamt up by chef Brett Graham) and extensive drinks menu once more grace the corner of Notting Hill‘s Ledbury Road.

That said, the place has been given some considerable spit and polish by interior design guru Rose Murray from These White Walls, so it’s a little less monochrome and more… artfully neutral. At its core though, it’s still the same exceptional restaurant, whose two Michelin stars have just been reinstated in the 2023 list.

The other major change is on the menu, which has now dropped the à la carte option altogether to offer a streamlined 8-course tasting menu (which is always what The Ledbury did best, anyway). At £195 a head for dinner it’s not cheap, but it’s designed around using whole animals, as part of Graham’s push for more sustainable meat production (while not running a double Michelin starred restaurant, Brett also helps to rear deer in Oxfordshire, and in the last two years has apparently branched out into cattle, pigs and poultry). It’s all prepped on a daily basis by new head chef Tom Spenceley, who comes here from the (also) double Michelin-starred Kitchen Table in Fitzrovia.

Sounds like he’s bringing a lot to this table too, then.


NOTE: The Ledbury is open for dinner Tues-Sat, plus lunch on Friday and Saturday. You can find out more, and book, HERE.
