My mother’s 89th birthday. Made us feel very special. Please support in these difficult times.

The best dinner we had while in London. We chose to eat all three courses (the menu has the option of one, two or three courses). I started with the foie gras and cranberry terrine. It was delicious with the cranberry being a perfect balance to the fatty foie gras. My date had the seared tuna which was perfect.

As a main course, I had the rump of belted galloway - a specialty beef. It was served roasted with snails and portobello mushrooms. Yes, please! The roast meat was tender and served medium rare. It was fantastic, not too heavy with just the right amount of flavor. My date had the slow braised beef cheek.

I then had the honeycomb ice cream with a fantastic botrytized wine. The two went perfectly together. My date had the warm mousse witha Greek vin santo.

A word about the wine. The wine list was fantastic. We started with a 2010 Ogier Cote Rotie which is a personal favorite but one we don’t see often given its age. The accompanying dessert wines were selected and presented by the sommelier, Melania. If you go, seek her out - she is a treasure, both friendly and knowledgable.

First visit to Medlar and wasn’t disappointed. Food and wine choices excellent and service impeccable, including a birthday dessert with candle, not ordered.
Will be back next time in London

Escaped to the country from Fulham a few years ago, but if I still lived up the road I'd be a weekly visitor

Interesting, well thought out combinations of food with a variety of fish and meat as well as a vegetarian option. Very pleasantly staffed. Wonderful fresh bread served with the meal (focaccia and sourdough) and stunning homemade chocolates with the fresh mint tea or coffee at the close of the meal. A crab raviolo and the venison were both outstanding as was the guinea fowl. We enjoyed the forced rhubarb at the close of our meal. Overall very good. It’s not cheap but then I guess for the innovation that’s not unfair. The only downside was that it was a little quiet although it was midweek and early. Probably other times the ambience is excellent so my mark here may be unfair.
