Booked a lunch table on a Monday, and looks are certainly deceiving!! Both the outside and inside are very unassuming, but the food is AMAZING!! The portion sizes are very generous and the flavours are all spot on. The venison main dish was perfectly cooked! The poached pear and ginger ice cream was delicious! The wine menu is more of...

It is amazing how good restaurants in London have become. This one has modern French and contemporary dishes at a price below the exorbitant London levels. Good for both business and couples, less so for families with kids.

We ate here in late November 2016. This is a fairly small, intimate restaurant in Chelsea area. We made a reservation (strongly recommended) for 9:00 pm. When we arrived the table was ready, we sat down immediately and were subsequently treated to excellent service from our waiters. The meals were excellent and the wine list was very good. They had...

Medlar restaurant a good setting and attentive service. Great wine list including by glass and caraffe available for 5-6 well chosen wines. ( useful when one of us had seafood and the other mainly meats) the food was a little fussy in its presentation, the first course a little confusing in its taste. ( i was jealous of the fried...

A warm welcome into a cosy restaurant got us out of some rather chilly autumn rain. Impeccable and attentive service throughout the evening with a personal touch; just right. Crispy calves brain starter with aioli and pickles was delicious: I thought I'd be brave with an unusual offal choice and for once was rewarded with something I'd be delighted to... More

We visited Medlar last night and from the moment we walked into the restaurant our evening was superb. All the staff very attentive, the Sommelier was fab and recommended excellent wines to compliment our menu choice. The menu had plenty to choose from and the food was delicious. Thank you to the staff at Medlar for making our evening so... More

Excellent food extremely well presented. Service was good. Would highly recommend the restaurant. Selection of Fish and meat dishes was good. Crank ravioli starter with seafood in lobster bisque was very good.

Nice combination of flavours. The food is fresh and very well presented. I had been there for lunch once and the same experience was repeated the second time which was a Friday evening. Friendly people good responses to questions on food and drinks.

A review of this restaurant may well be superfluous as I am sure it has already garnered much praise. Having had several meals at Medlar's in the past, I arranged to hold a birthday lunch there last month in their private room upstairs. Everything went to plan thanks in large part to Lucy the events manager who could not have... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
