This is a fantastic restaurant. We had not been for about 5 years and wow it has changed, gaining a few Michelin stars on the way. Only a choice of 2 set menus at the weekend so if you are in any way picky be warned. I love giving myself to the chef and experiencing what he wants to show off. Food is seriously good; original, seasonal, balanced with the odd dip into real complexity and richness! We did wines with the dishes which takes you on a fascinating guided journey. Staff knowledgable and charming. Expensive of course but worth every penny.

We opted for the tasting menu, so this was never going to be a cheap occasion, well what can you do after 38 years married? The meal was splendid and we included the wine option. Whilst we both enjoyed the meal we agreed that the ambience and lack of attention was really surprising. Nobody asked us if this was a special occasion and indeed it just felt like an expensive lunch. I cannot fault the food or wine but the service was seriously lacking. For over £400, I expected to be made to feel really special, we weren't. I am glad to have experienced the Ledbury but we wont be going back.

What a wonderful restaurant. Each and every course was wonderful and full of flavor. We had the wine pairing which was outstanding.... The service was even better than the food... There is only one seating per table per evening. If you have the time and an unlimited amount to spent I would suggest this restaurant.

A more faultless four course set lunch is hard to imagine, this restaurant is just amazingly good. The warm and stylish interior, friendly staff, laid back atmosphere this Sunday lunchtime made for a perfect occasion. We started with the smoked eel, fantastic flavour. This was followed by asparagus with cured duck, very good indeed though not outstanding. Main course was short rib beef, soft and dark, intensely flavoured - truly fabulous! Dessert was a chocolate mousse, very good indeed.
Easily one of the very best places to dine in London. A real treat.
