Having The Ledbury a five-minute walk away is almost enough to make Marianne look cheap. The operative word being almost. This tiny little room – seating for 14 people, and a kitchen that may be smaller than the one in your flat – serves serious food at serious prices. The menu changes every day, but it’s always equally good for meat, fish, and vegetarian. There’s a good deal at lunch (£35 for 3 courses), but dinner is a tasting menu only situation (from £85). Considering the tiny space and maximum booking size of six, this isn’t the spot for a big, rowdy dinner, but for small groups who want to talk in peace and quiet, Marianne is perfect. Put it on your shortlist for a serious date or anniversary type of event.
