Based in Notting Hill with head chef Brett Graham leading the team, the two Michelin-starred Ledbury held on to its ranking as the third best restaurant in the UK at the National Restaurant Awards, while it is ranked as the 20th best restaurant in the world by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards.
Graham puts the success down to putting the emphasis on the customer: “We constantly focus on the customer and push to improve in all areas,” he said. "This award shows what a great job our team is doing here 7 days a week."
Using an algorithm, All In One ranks the success of London’s restaurants by compiling the information from other awards, lists and ratings over the last 12 months into one. They say it ‘unifies and normalises the myriad of dining awards and ratings into one easy to digest, definitive index.’
All In London’s Paul Carter praised The Ledbury’s consistency: “The robustness of the Ultimate Restaurant List means that to get placed in the top 100 an eatery needs to be turning out a dining experience at the very highest level; our algorithm rewards consistency and that’s the real reason we’re seeing The Ledbury topping this list time and time again."
Ranking in second place this year was Michel Roux Jnr’s Le Gavroche and in third place was Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. Entering the rankings for the first time was Brixton pizzeria Franco Manca, debuting at number 18.
