    Don’t be put off by the unassuming exterior and leggy walk from Sloane Square. Nice warm welcome, comfortable seating and relaxed atmosphere. Starter and mains delicious, and cheeseboard wonderful. Would definitely return. Thank you.

    It is with pleasure to write a review of Medlar. It was the one to beat during my trip to London. From exemplary service to spectacular food and wine selection, the staff never skipped a beat. I would recommend Medlar without hesitation.

    I love Medlar. My wife and I went there for our wedding and again on our anniversary. Their service is impeccable- on both occasions the staff were tremendously attentive and we ended up with free deserts, which is always a pleasant surprise. We go for lunches during the week as they are typically slow and easy to book. While we had a bit of an unfortunate incident there (an elderly gentleman got confused and had an accident in the back), this was no fault of the restaurant and its staff. If anything, they treated the gentleman with respect, which I commend. It is definitely not pleasant for me as a customer but then I think: "I would like people to treat my parents with respect, if they ever end up in this situation as they get older."

    A very enjoyable lunch, I was very much looking forward to dining at Medlar and the experience was as I’d expected, excellent all round, the staff were lovely and the food superb, definitely deserves another trip, the fact it’s open on a Monday was particularly good for me.

    Cooking has deteriorated markedly. E.g., the tempura was oily rather than crisp; the fish not the freshest; the beef plain boring. The menu is not well balanced. Ambience is not soothing; terrible lighting and tiny font makes it near impossible for those of us of a certain age to read the menu. Staff delightful.

    Amazing , without doubt one of the most wonderful restaurant's I have dined at. Very understated , relaxed atmosphere , service is professional yet friendly and everything arrives to the table in a seamless poetry. The food is excellent and on par with any Michelin star restaurants I have visited. Medlar is wonderful and the staff are amazing.

    We went for lunch on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. A great set menu grounded in modern French cuisine, excellent cooking and service, everything was delicious and the ambience was perfect: local and relaxed. We didn’t choose the Tarte Tatin but having seen it arrive on another table will definitely be ordering this next time!

    The best chips I've ever eaten and a mouthwatering asian fish dish along with quiet bench seating made for an excellent dining experience. The wine list is for the wealthy and there are no decent low-priced options - surely not impossible?
