A special place for my wife’s birthday, the food was great and the wine selection perfect. They have a great selection of champagne; we had a 1999 vintage, which was gracefully decanted before serving. We had the fillet and the venison, both extremely tender. The cheese selection was out of this world and the waiter knew every last detail on... More

My husband heard the Sommelier at Le Manoir aux Qua'Saisons (world service radio) say that if he wasn't eating there he would eat at Medlar so we decided to try it. We were really not disappointed and having lived in France half our lives, this was a real treat. Unpretentious deliciously prepared and presented dishes, our plates were wiped clean,... More

Had a business dinner - we arrived early and they weren't actually open but they said no problem we can sit at the table - so full marks for that. The place is nicely done out - understated but elegant. The service was also excellent well paced and not intrusive at all. we sat in a booth and felt we... More

What a find. The restaurant critics were spot on. Great service wonderful food. The menu choice was spot on with something for every taste. We were treated so well with an extra dessert for our wedding anniversary and when we went back two days later a welcome back glass of champagne. We'll done medlar. Only comment to be made is...

Medlar puts it all together beautifully from the moment you walk through the door. Lovely attentive but unobtrusive service. Well decorated space (be sure to book a table in the first two rooms). Follow the suggestions of the wait staff for the menu. The food is outstanding. For this quality, in London, the restaurant is a bargain.

I've been here a few times and never been disappointed. Really nice surroundings, delicious menu and great staff. Can't really fault it at all.

Nice and cosy restaurant on the Kings Road, in a nice neighbourhood. High quality of food (perhaps a little to over pretentious), excellent service and a great wine list. The sommelier recommended great wine matching to the menu. A restaurant I can recommend.

We went for a second lunchtime visit and it was still superb. My wife (an excellent cook) kept saying "this is the sort of thing I just can't do at home". We swapped each dish half way so for £27 each we effectively had a 6 course tasting menu. The crab raviolo starter was delicious and the duck egg tart... More

Booked this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend coming up to London from Wales. Excellent food and service, Good selection of not overpriced wines as well. Wonderful atmosphere and best food I have tasted on the Kings Road.

Medlar offers ALL for the discerning person and those in particular who enjoy good 'old fashioned' courtesy and warmth when visiting an 'English Eating House ' There is a warmth as you enter and an aroma suggesting that more will follow. The food which can be described as 'international' is varied and within most peoples budget. The courtesy and helpfulness... More
