Enjoyed the wide variety of foods through three courses. Wait staff very friendly and attentive. Very pricey so be prepared.

We chose Medlar for our first evening in London based on the great reviews and the menu and it deliciously exceeded all our expectations. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived and were seated at a most comfortable and intimate banquette in this very quietly elegant restaurant. We enjoyed a glass of the excellent house champagne as we made... More

I had a good feeling about this place; it was an early booking and I arrived before my dining partner but there was a hum of activity before an anticipated busy night and it appeared the staff were doing a job they loved. They could not have been more helpful in explaining the menu and offered me a craft beer... More

The photos on the web site do not do Medlar justice. I was most surprised when i walked in and saw how nice it was. It was really busy and so it should be, the food was excellent, the menu was interesting so we were able to choose beyond normal. The food was served beautifully and tasted superb, exactly as...

I had the crab raviolo as a starter, the steak for main and the cherry financier for the dessert , the three... More

This arguably awkward to get to location is worth the taxi/bus/hike there. For all the Chez Bruce fans, in my opinion, this exceeds such standards. This small well thought out room is cosy and staff all very friendly and welcoming. Suitable for business, for a couple and also foro 3 Vicars who were also dining when I visited. Wonderful foie...

I have visited Medlar couple of times and to be honest I can not wait to come back. The taste of the food and presentation is absolutely amazing, service very attentive. Everything what I expect from one Michelin star restaurant.

Five of us visited Medlar for a friend's birthday dinner. The service was wonderful from start to finish. Everyone enjoyed their food. The chocolate tart is by far one of the best desserts I have ever eaten. The restaurant has an extensive wine list. We sat upstairs, which was a quieter space than the first floor. At £45 for three... More

High end prices but food and service not just average. Tried hard to please - too hard. Seemed anxious. Kept refilling water every 5 minutes and kept bringing a glass of ice that was difficult to use. Bread only fair and kept offering it beyond when we desired it. Food unimaginative- not bad just boring. If the meal would have... More
