A contestant for the best cooking in London! The crab raviolo......marvellous. And the pace is right. And lovely to have proper courses, not all this small dish of that, another of this, plus explanations - impossible to talk to one's friends.

Lovely wine list, very varied and original. And room between the tables. And smiles!

Medlar is an example of how to get a restaurant right. Stylish but not overbearing, outstanding food without the pretentiousness and excellent service without being imposing. It is an absolute gem and well worth visiting.

We waited an hour for our starter to arrive. They did not even apologise or offer anything complimentary to compensate. They even looked affronted when we politely asked how it was coming along about 40 minutes after we ordered. The food was good when it finally arrived but both the food and the wine were overpriced and not good value for money. We would not return.

Medlar is the kind of restaurant that you can rely on in a pinch to provide both a consistently good meal and lovely service and ambience. We took an out-of-town foodie guest there with no hesitation about the experience we would have. Everything was perfect to a T.

Overall it was first class. All four of us enjoyed our food and wine . Only disappointment was my pasta crab starter. The sauce over powered the crab. The sauce was good.
Not an everyday restaurant but there as quite a few of those nearby. Wish it was further along the Kings road.

It was four years after I met my husband and we wanted to celebrate with a special dinner. We went to Medlar after I have read really good reviews and we had an excellent experience. The restaurant is intimate and the staff really nice. The food was delicious, lovely presentation and good selection on wines. For a special occasion it was the perfect place!

As a cheese lover I can say that the cheeseboard selection was superb

Had lunch with a former colleague who is a bit of a foodie. The menu was fixed price with a good range of interesting and original choices. Service was just right. Based on lunch, I will certainly try it for dinner.

A wonderful restaurant. Food was spectacular and the wine menu is amazing. The service was so good I really can’t comment as I didn’t even notice them. The food arrive but I can’t remember them puting it down, but when you wanted to order get the bill or anything else they seemed to be there. Have to say the service you just can’t fault. It was my husbands birthday and they gave him a free dessert which was so good. Cheese board here is amazing.

The best thing about Medlar is that they create food you really want to eat. Most of the time the quality of dining is not as good as cooking for yourself. With Medlar it’s truly excellent. Staff are really helpful and both times I have been helped me with small problems. I shall definitely be coming back!

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!
