We visited Medlar for the second time and had a delicious meal. The service is probably the best you ll find in London and the food is delicious. It is true that the atmosphere is nothing exceptional but i would not know a better place to have a relaxing meal.

considering this place has such good reviews and giles coren is a regular i was rather disappointed. my husband and i booked a table on a sat lunchtime. we arrived to find we were the only customers there - not what i was expecting. we both had the crab ravioli with shrimp to start. it was ok, very small pieces of fish, a little cold and spoilt by the very bland chopped tomatoes on top. i then had the beef with snails and chips. the beef was very tough and the snails had been so chargrilled in horrible tasting herbs they were inedible. chips were good. my husband had pork done 3 ways - 1 of which was to leave it overnight in a vat of vinegar. disgusting to say the least. pudding was the saviour of my meal. a lovely raspberry sorbet with madeleines. on the plus side the service was wonderful and we tried a very good english wine, but we wont be visiting again.

Yes. Seriously. In absolute terms. Compared to the best. We tried the crab ravioli which is one of the trademarks and is superb. We tried the lamb and the mallard which were also top quality. Deserts were fantastic especially the tarte ratin. And the amazing thing is that the menu is fixed at 40 pounds for the three course. Bargain! The only one criticism is that the ambiance is not the best. It has to be improved. But then again the owners would argue that all their effort and costs go to the quality of the food..

We decided to try lunch at Medlar on the spur of the moment as we were nearby and had read good things about it. The welcome was warm, the atmosphere calm and friendly and the food excellent. A good short fixed price menu, I had crab raviolo and brill but plenty of other dishes caught my eye. Every ingredient served a purpose - the food was refined but not fussy. I would thoroughly recommend it even though some people might think it a bit off the beaten track - there's lots of interest on the King's Road if you walk from Sloane Square and buses if you don't want to.
