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. 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.
