Every year on our birthdays, my husband and I treat each other to lunch at a surprise destination. Heading towards our 20th anniversary, we've been fortunate to experience some outstanding dining. After lunch at Medlar yesterday though, we are struggling to think of anywhere that comes close in terms of quality, service and value for money. HOW ON EARTH do they produce such a world class 3 course set lunch for £26?!!
Everything was seasonal and delicious. Both starters – the crab raviolo and the tagliatelle with girolles – were beautiful in presentation, generous in portion size and perfectly balanced. We ordered with heavy hearts, knowing that in doing so we'd forgo at last two other exquisite options.
I could go on about what we selected and how perfect it all was – but for me, two non-food factors nailed it. Medlar offers a range of interesting and affordable wines in 500ml carafe portions – ideal for that red/white dilemma. But more importantly, as you walk down Kings Road past the Rogues Gallery of ubiquitous restaurant chains, you reach Worlds End and find this unique neighbourhood gem. I don't know how long it can stay this way – maybe too many effusive reviews will be its downfall! In the meantime though, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Thank you Dabbous, for refusing to take us until late November!
