We came here for a special occasion and it was a real treat. Absolutely delicious food, beautifully cooked. The service was impeccable and the little extras of truffles and marshmallows at the end was a lovely treat. A very pleasurable dining experience

This is a family style establishment. By family, I mean the most competent group of professionals all trying to hit the perfect service every time. This is everything from clearing plates to giving advice on food. Hard to beat especially at this price.

Delicious and interesting food beautifully cooked! We shared a delicious bottle of fizz that was good value.
Great people watching …. Especially the two lunching guests who had evidently chosen some special wine. To decant or not? That is indeed a question.
Service was spot on too….
Overall our lunch was a memorable treat!

Medlar is our “to go to” restaurant in London. Everything is perfect, the new menu divine and as always David and Melania consummate professionals. And our guests loved it. We prefer lunches and the added advantage is that corkage is only £10 at lunchtime.

A fantastic evening
Staff went over and above to make a nice night even more special -service and food were both first class. It is a reputation well deserved.

I went to Medlar with 2 friends on Saturday night and had a truly lovely time. The food was amazing, we all thought we’d try something we may not I tried before. I had the foi gras terrine which was amazing and my friends opted for the steak with snails. Both slightly apprehensive as hadn’t had snail before but both loved it.
As well as one of best meals I’ve had in a long time, the waiter was friendly and attentive and the whole atmosphere made for a lovely, relaxed evening which is just what we all needed.

I think it is impossible to have a bad meal at Medlar the consistency and quality are consistently maintained. Still the best value in London for such quality.

Have not been to this restaurant since the start of the pandemic in early 2020.
Staff were very polite and helpful.
Food lived up to what I would expect and recalled - my guests loved it.
Lots of choice on the wine list, but on the more pricey end.
Sadly prices have gone up since the pandemic, but then this is to be expected.

Excellent food and service. I found the gaspacho with scallops a bit too strong a flavour for a full soup. afew bites were excellent but the whole bowl felt like too much. perhaps just my taste. on the grouse, it felt like it needed something else on the plate to balance the richness of the grouse.

Very friendly and helpful staff - great food ( I am French therefore fussy about my food) - very inspiring menu and everything is just delicious. be prepared : deserts are quite large ! Excellent value for money especially in London
The decor is quite traditional and the restaurant is quiet which is nice to have a conversation. The buzz is in the plate !
