Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Brett Graham’s virtuoso cuisine has established his “special yet unstuffy” Notting Hill HQ as London’s No. 1 gastronomic address (topping this year’s survey nominations as best meal of the year, and losing only narrowly to The Araki in achieving the highest food rating). “Absence of snob factor” is key: dishes are “sophisticated and elaborate without being pretentious”; “utterly charming” staff are “much more easy-going than at many Michelin-starred peers”; and the “well-spaced” interior lacks grandiosity while being “calm and relaxing”.
“Brett Graham simply doesn’t falter” at this “utterly brilliant” Notting Hill champion – yet again London’s No. 1 foodie address thanks to his “adventurous” culinary creations “perfectly executed with panache”. The “muted luxury” of the room is all part of an experience combining “subtle understated elegance, and care given to every detail”.
“Superb meals seem natural”, at Brett Graham’s “flawless” Notting Hill stand-out: yet again London’s No. 1 restaurant; there’s “no pomp” – staff are “so naturally courteous and efficient” – and his “inspired” cuisine is “as close to perfect as you can get”.
“Brett Graham is a genius, whose French/Australasian fusion still dazzles”, and his “impeccable” Notting Hill fixture was again rated London’s foodie No. 1, thanks to its “enchanting” food and “silky smooth” service; can he push on for the dreaded third Michelin star, though, without succumbing to stuffiness and overpricing?
The Ledbury Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Top of the tree. Restaurant food is often labelled memorable when it is not. The Ledbury lives up to the praise."
"Still the best game in town. Maybe not the most glamorous dining room but excellent, welcoming service, helpful sommelier team and the best food...keep going back despite grown up prices."
"Gorgeous white truffle imbued bantam egg,and crisp pork lifted by a gooseberry and carrot sauce were highlights. Quince ice-cream with sponge and the trade mark thin meringue crisp was over sweet and less interesting."
"Lovely highly accomplished cooking. Minimal gimmicks just great food. Warm but profesional service. Full restaurant with a great atmosphere. Londons best."
