I went with my Mum and Dad on a Wednesday evening . We arrived at 20.30 hours and were immediately shown to our table and presented with the menu. I chose foie gras as a starter and steak for my mains . The foie gras was delicious and the brioche was soft. My Galloway steak was the best steak I'd... More

I came here with my aunt and uncle for Sunday lunch. I don´t know where to start. As we step in, we felt very welcomed. Room itself is very nicely and cosy decorated, we were sat in front part of restaurant. They had £35 Prix Fixe menu (3 courses) so we went for it while selection is big and definitely... More

Service ++ Unpretentious which was a bonus thank goodness. Attentive without being 'In yer face' Food +/- Having made the trip from North London based on reviews actually the majority of the food was pretty unremarkable in taste. However, the rabbit was generous in portion and the duck was as expected but nothing extra special. I know Jay Rayner totally... More

I have come to the conclusion that most of the positive reviews about this place is fake. The food is average at best and service is very French. Atmosphere can be most aptly described as stale.

The staff go lot of way to give you a good service & please you with small touches such as when they serve water they will bring ice & lemon to the table & make you that they are refilled. Most of the starter portions are big & the mains... More

JoJo took me here for my Birthday, a reciprocal treat after last month's visit to The Ivy. A couple of drinks in the local boozer, The Sporting Page and then onto dinner. We had a nice table at the front of the restaurant, which is well styled and easy on the eye. The now established glass of champagne whilst we... More

A two night trip from Scotland took us to Medlar for our first evening, chosen by son who knew that the wine list was excellent and also the food first rate. We were not disappointed. Very different from eating out here in Highland Perthshire. It was hard to chose from such a varied menu full of interesting dishes. All the... More

The best meal I have had in ages. I cannot fault the service, food and wine list. The food portions were spot on. The atmosphere friendly and the sommelier was excellent. If you want a great meal and great service don't pass this door. Well worth a visit.

Thank Gary M

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
