What is it like to work at the UK's best restaurant? That's the question Restaurant magazine asks in this month's issue as its editorial team spends a day with Brett Graham at the two Michelin-starred restaurant The Ledbury.

For the cover feature for the November issue of the magazine, out tomorrow, Joe Lutrario spends a day at the Notting Hill restaurant to get a better understanding of why the restaurant has so many accolades.

The restaurant, which never actively seeks publicity, has topped the National Restaurant Awards for three years running​ and is the fourteenth best in the world​. 

There is an in-depth look at the careful use of produce for the restaurant's menu as well as Graham's explanation of how he gets the most out of his brigade - ultimately through an inclusive approach that encourages a strong work ethic. 

"This is not a laid-back kitchen; we can't have people who don't pull their weight, but we try and encourage teamwork," Graham tells the magazine. "In many places at this level there is a culture of not helping people when they're in the shit, but we come to people's aid here where possible." 

The bumper issue also includes a round-up of this year's National Restaurant Awards winners and an in-depth interview with Jesse Dunford Wood about his partnership with Andy and Jonathan Perritt for Parlour​ as well as all these features: 

  • A business profile of Eren Ali of South American chain Las Iguanas 
  • Restaurant openings with a focus on Outlaw's Seafood & Grill at The Capital Hotel 
  • A spotlight on Bourbon in Liquid Assets
  • A guide to stocks
  • An extract from Nick Lander's book The Art of the Restaurateur

The November issue of Restaurant is out tomorrow. The magazine is available at large branches of WH Smith or you can subscribe here.
