We had an excellent lunch at Medlar, which was hard to fault. The choice on the set lunch menu was wide and varied - a pleasing range of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes in a french style - and all looked appetising. The cooking was really good, presentation attractive and ingredients / flavours well balanced. The set lunch was very... More

We visited this restaurant for Monday dinner with another couple. We had a table upstairs which was very cosy and the atmosphere was very special, and not too rarified for a Michelin Star restaurant. The set price menu offered many choices and the food was first rate, which together with the Chiefs suggestions for how the food should be cooked... More

We had lunch in the private dining room for a special occasion on 23 December. Medlar's expertise, attention to detail and professionalism was outstanding which made the event memorable. The service was excellent due to their attentiveness without being overbearing. The wine list is extensive and the sommelier recommended fabulous wines to complement the menu. Last but not least the... More

We had an excellent experience for our first time at Medlar which was enthusiastically recommended by a family member. It was extremely good value for money. The menu is varied with an interesting blend of flavours and portions that are the right size for an enjoyable meal leaving room, just about, for the amazing chocolate truffles and mango marshmallow treats...

This is the place for grown up dinner. The cooking is precise and the flavour combinations defty matched. Staff are professional. There is a low buzz, but not a din. Puddings, so often overlooked in places with pretentions to serious food, are worth saving room for. Expect to emerge at the end of the evening felling both well and thoughtfully... More

Booked late as we were stopping overnight in London for a show and not booked dinner, this was probably our fourth choice as most places were fully booked and this particular restaurant wasnt in the area we were staying, nevertheless it was a good choice. We were with our teenage children who fancy themselves as food critics, we all had... More

Loved this restaurant. It is small but the food packs big flavour. The atmosphere and service was great. There were so many little extras on the plate that went with each dish, and they are very happy to change things about for you. I had a great Steak, underblade, melt in the mouth. We got a free dessert too, to... More

We've eaten twice here. The first time I thought the food was Ok but the wine list was comprehensive and the atmosphere good. The second time we ate here we were entertaining friends. The menu is imaginative in its descriptions but the food was bland and dry. None of us were that impressed. The wine list is extensive but not... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch here. The menu is full of fabulous original dishes and absolutely nothing disappointed. Service was impeccable; friendly, perfectly efficient and non-intrusive. We particularly enjoyed the pear tarte tatin dessert. The set menu for 4, consisting of 3 courses with a bottle of Prosecco (£35), two bottles of water and 2 soft drinks came to £188,... More
