With two Michelin stars to its name and currently ranked an impressive 13th place in the list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, you’d imagine The Ledbury would offer a rather stuffy dining experience. However, perhaps because of the laid-back Aussie roots of its chef-patron Brett Graham, this Notting Hill favourite retains the relaxed vibe of a neighbourhood restaurant with staff that are consistently praised for their exemplary service. Choose the tasting menu paired with a selection of exquisite wines and enjoy a culinary tour de force.

With its listed interior that was once home to the showroom of Wolseley Motors Limited in the 1920s, The Wolseley feels like it has been part of the fabric of London for a century. In fact, restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King only opened their self-proclaimed ‘café-restaurant in the grand European tradition’ in 2003, delivering an all-day dining space where its Viennoiserie, sumptuous afternoon tea and signature dishes such as veal Holstein have become legendary. This place is an absolute must-visit on any trip to the capital.
