Restaurateur and TV chef Mike Robinson and the Ledbury's head chef Brett Graham have gone in to business with publican Edwin Vaux.
The partners are collaborating at Vaux's Harwood Arms pub, in Fulham, west London.
The pub, which has recently undergone refurbishment, will serve English food and specialise in showcasing locally-sourced produce from Berkshire.
Neither Graham nor Robinson will be cooking at the Harwood, although ex-Ledbury chef, Stephen Williams will head the kitchen team.
Speaking exclusively to Caterersearch
Graham added: "The Harwood is a one-off little business venture. I am full-time at the Ledbury and will always be in the kitchen here."
Robinson is a regular presenter on UKTV Food and owns the Pot Kiln at Yattenden in Berkshire.
Howard and Platts-Martin have no business interest in the Harwood.
