Cute restaurant at the wrong end of the King's road. It did have a star when I visited it has since lost the star. I think perhaps this wasn't well thought out when awarded initially despite the fact that it's modelled on Chez Bruce/Glasshouse/Trompette it wasn't delivering the same level of experience when we visited. However we thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Simple decor in this restaurant on the middle stretch of the Kings Road but nothing more needed when the food is so good. An imaginative menu beautifully presented. Set price lunch a great bargain while á la carte has wide choice. Attentive staff and the chef might even come out to see how you enjoyed his cooking. Vital to book... More

We decided to try a new restaurant and today ended up at the Medlar on Kings Road. There are 7 choices for starter main and dessert and to be honest I could have eaten them all! I decided on fois gras with smoked eel and brioche followed by shin of beef then the chocolate tart. All 3 dishes were divine!... More

Just had Saturday lunch at medlar and was very impressed. Three courses for thirty pounds and great value it was , had the crab raviolo with brown shrimp in a bisque sauce and can say it was full of taste and flavour, equally as good was the middle white pork chop and cheek. Staff and service were excellent and would... More

We went for our anniversary and thoroughly loved it. The crab ravioli was bursting with flavour and the only disappointment, was when then plate was empty. Mains consisted of guinea fowl and grouse, and both meals were top notch. Service was sublime, with just the right amount of attention paid to each table, without becoming overbearing. The wine list was... More

A wonderful dining experience - the service, food and wines were superb - we highly recommend Medlar Restaurant - the moment we walked in we were greeted by the staff and made to feel very welcome.

Great restaurant with impeccable staff and food. The crab ravioli was sensational and the rump of Belted Galloway is delicious. The cheese board is also excellent with plenty of choice.

Wonderful experience! We arrived for a relatively late booking and found the restaurant full. There was a great atmosphere. We were sat at a banquet table which was comfortable and suited us. The decor is tasteful. We were seated by David the Co-Owner. He was delightfully pleasant and accommodating. The wine sommelier was knowledgeable and gave some excellent suggestions. One... More

Very welcoming staff, to start with, professional and friendly (but not too friendly). The food was excellent, with plenty creative dishes. The atmosphere was very pleasant. The price was at the upper end of the scale, but definitely worth it. Very recommended!

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
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.
