A delightful restaurant on the Kings Road. We loved the food, wine list and excellent service.

I booked Medlar for a late leisurely lunch with 3 friends on a Sunday and we were not disappointed.
Its rare that i spend a solid 20 mins deciding what the choose off a menu but literally every option sounded delicious and what we eventually ordered did not disappoint.
All three courses (plus the extras which were a nice surprise) were delicious and the wine list although extensive had choices for all tastes and budgets.
I would seriously recommend the crab starter and the passion fruit beignets - they literally were to die for.
at £35 for 3 courses this really is a restaurant worth visiting!
We plan to be back very soon to try the rest of the Menu.

Medlar's is not cheap but the food is exceptional and the waiting staff knowledgeable and friendly. The wine list is extensive but might benefit from one or two cheaper 'house' wines. South America, especially Chile is under-represented on the list.

A most enjoyable lunch, having not eaten there for a number of years it was well worth the visit, also nice to have such a good place on my dootstep. Very amusing to have an all French regional cheese plate in geographical order but with one Cornish outlier!

In London for one night, my wife and I booked a table at Medlar. The table was near the rear of the restaurant and had some privacy without being hidden. Food was fabulous, and a good menu that evening to choose from. A wide wine menu, and we experimented with a Georgian Orange wine. Service was spot on, efficient and dishes arrived without a long wait. Not that we felt hurried at all.
Little things like the marshmallows after desert made the evening (my wife loved them).
A lovely restaurant to spoil the wife at. She is looking for an excuse to go back!

Really lovely restaurant.
Also liked the way the menu was one price for two courses and one price for 3 courses. Made life so simple.
Lovely part of town we will be back here that’s for sure

It's a shame Medlar is not closer to where we live because then we would go much more often. The staff are very friendly and professional and the food is superb. Never disappoints and well worth the 1 h of travel to get there.

Exemplary service, cosy atmosphere and delicious food. Went for the tasting menu with paired wines which was pretty good value. Food portions were just right and they certainly didn't skimp on the wine all of which was excellent and complemented each course. They were perfectly happy to vary some of the choices to suit our preferences as well.

Hard to pick out the best dishes as they were all fabulous, but the crab ravioli and the quail were my pick. The chocolate tart was fab and the creme brulee was right up there with the best I've had.

Only one bad thing - it's the "wrong" side of London for us, so it was a bit of a trek. But worth it!

The Sunday dinner menu is good value with good number of choices. I am gluten free and most of the options were suitable for me (with a few modifications). The food was outstanding; we both had the beef. Best meal I have had in a long time. Really nice ambience and service too. Would be romantic for a date.

Medlar is a special place. The food is superb and imaginative, the wine list extensive and interesting. My last visit was one of the best meals I had in 2017 and this time around is unlikely to be bettered in 2018.

Attentive, friendly and informal service combine to make for a special time.

Thanks to all.

We struggled to pick what course was the most delicious on the tasting menu. The cheese selection was heaven and the staff making picking fun. They also quietly brought an extra little treat out for dessert as we were celebrating a birthday. Great service and a fantastic drinks menu.

We had a wonderful evening at Medlar, a night to remember!

All of the staff were extremely pleasant and attentive, in particular the sommelier stole the show. He was very friendly and informative, with each wine he selected for us we got great insights into the selection and other wines that could have gone with the plate of food. He really added to the lovely evening.

The food was incredible, both the flavours and presentation. We were spoilt with choices on the menu but managed to narrow it down in the end. We particularly enjoyed the calf brain salad and the passion fruit curd beignets.

We will definitely be back again and have already told our friends and family about our perfect meal here. Thank you!
