The Ledbury, Notting Hill

From his Ledbury Road enclave in Notting Hill, Chef Brett Graham and his team offer innovative cooking, paired with fine wines in a smart, modern setting.

Perhaps this dish of Roe Deer from Notting Hill’s The Ledbury makes it the one restaurant you couldn’t live without?


The Quality Chop House, Farringdon

Just down from Exmouth Market, The Quality Chop House in Farringdon has existed as a butchers, shop and later dining room and wine bar since 1869.

Maybe it’s this illustrious history that makes it your top pick in London, or perhaps its classic comfort dishes such as this Mince Toast that really set it apart?

Is Head Chef Ben Murphy’s Chicken Liver Parfait with pain d’epices and blood orange, the dish you dream about?
