London’s Best Chef’s Table Experiences
The chef’s table experience is always a night to remember. In a city with as vibrant a restaurant culture as London, it may just be the best meal of your life.
At the chef’s table, lucky diners get to try exciting, experimental dishes in an intimate setting, often seeing the chef cook the food while you sit, drink and eat. It’s an opportunity for the kitchen to test run their next big idea, and for the diner to say “I had it first!” If you are lucky, you may even be invited back to the kitchen to see where the delicious magic happens.
At the centre of Mayfair, Claridge’s is a legendary hotel and Art Deco masterpiece. It is only fitting that such an institution has an equally impressive restaurant.
That was supplied by Simon Rogan in 2014. The two Michelin-starred chef is best-known for L’enclume, where he developed the seasonally-focussed approach that has made Fera such a bustling success.
All the food here comes from the same Cumbrian farm that Rogan set up to fuel his L’enclume exploits, and the chef’s table experience here is one not to be forgotten. The Telegraph’s Hilary Armstrong gave a warm account of her experience.
“The eye is automatically drawn to the imposing portal between kitchen and dining room that dominates the magnificent art deco space. Throughout service, waves of chefs emerges from it to enter the dining room and serve dishes directly to the diners. But the traffic is not just one way. Inquisitive diners are always warmly welcomed in the Fera kitchen.”

Founded in 2011, Hedone has established a big reputation for fine dining, appearing in the top 60 restaurants in the world, as decided by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants panel.
The chef behind this success is Mikael Jonsson, who is renowned for his clean, unfussy food. He is also known for the ability to improvise, seeing what natural produce has been delivered that day and coming up with incredible meals in a matter of minutes.
“There are times when the waiter doesn’t really know what’s on the plate,” he explains. “The dish literally hasn’t been served before. For guests who are curious, it can be a lot of fun."
