The Quince and Medlar has a lovely friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Light classical music played quietly in the background lends a calm and intimate feel to the restaurant. Having been met at the door, drinks and canapes are served in a small drawing room whilst one chooses from the imaginative and mouthwatering menu. The food is presented beautifully and tastes delicious. I had poached pear stuffed with capers and served with pickled walnuts to start, great flavour combinations, followed by Lebanese pancakes, so light and fluffy. Homemade bread and many interestingly prepared seasonal vegetables (e.g. carrots with sesame) accompany each meal. Make sure you leave room for a pud as they too are delicious, honey cheesecake being voted “best ever cheesecake” by my friend (and she should know!). The service is impeccable – not too fussy but attentive. Definitely not just for veggies, but wonderful “occassion” dining at a very reasonable price. I'm recommending to all my friends!
