The starters were delicious and the service was great. The main courses were beautifully cooked but didn’t taste amazing. My dinner guest actually left his chicken dish.

First time visiting medlar and the entrance is very understated. Weve been to chez Bruce quite a few times and you can see the restaurants heritage. Seasonal menu full of interest and flavour. Amazing wine list. Buzzing atmosphere without being intrusive. Just the sound of diners enjoying great food!

This wasn't my first time here, nor will it be my last. The food was, as usual, exceptional: the duck egg tart was a delight for the eyes as well as the taste buds, the venison loin was tender and cooked perfectly, and the apple tarte tatin was so delicious that I believe it competes with the one I recently had at the multi-Michelin starred restaurant in the area.
The decor is calming and cozy, and I have always appreciated that I could dine here in a quiet atmosphere without the headache that so many noisy restaurants in Central London often leave me with. The service was excellent, of course. I can't fault the experience, nor any of the dishes I enjoyed. Truly a special evening.

This is a good london restaurant, for that you have to pay up! So be prepared to part with £100 per head and that’s being conservative on the alcohol!

Food is great, very similar to dining at Chez Bruce if you know it.

Four of us had dinner at Medlar on Wednesday 7 November.Each couple had previously been to Medlar on earlier visits to London. We loved everything about the experience. The restaurant was full and buzzy. However we had the “ Banque” seating which gave us a feeling of privacy.We were able to converse easily. The waiter and sommelier were both efficient ,knowledgeable and friendly.
The food was sensational. The piece d resistance was the Tarte Tatin,which has to be ordered for two people. It fed all four of us and is reason enough on its own to return. We ate at the River Cafe the following evening and had a great night. However we rated Medlar as superior for food and ambiance and certainly for price.
We are coming back to London in February 2019 and will be returning to Medlar
