We dined at this restaurant for our 20th wedding anniversary celebration in June 2014 having intended to go on previous visits but not got round to it. All I can say is that it was worth the wait.

The food was excellent, so lovely to be able to eat anything off the menu, a strange experience for a vegetarian!

The location, premises and whole dining experience did not disappoint in any way and we will be visiting again in the not too distant future.

To say that this restaurant is an institution would be doing a disservice, many so called 'family' operations can become stale and set in their ways.
There is no such worry here, the couple who have owned and operated this truly exceptional experience have continued to evolve and refine their menu so that you will not be disappointed. Other contributors have described the building, it could be described as 'traditional' but that should not be construed as a negative, everything is very welcoming and conducive to a relaxing and enjoyable evening.
The menu should satisfy the most demanding visitor, I understand that it changes every month, with vegan options. I would point out that I am not vegetarian but good food is good food and great service is great service and both are to be found here.
The attention to the taste, texture, balance and presentation on the plate has to be admired. Whether Vegan, vegetarian or, like me, carnivore I would highly recommend the Quince and Medlar.

Blessed with some super vegetarian restaurants in Edinburgh, we approached the Quince & Medlar - which was completely unknown to us - with some diffidence. But our recent dinner there was truly outstanding and deserves warm praise. The menu showed imagination and flair; and the execution was faultless. A lot of work goes into producing food of this quality, yet the strain does not show. We learned that this restaurant has been serving its community for over 25 years - and doing so in style. Lucky Cumbria.

What an amazing find by my husband! Everything was fantastic from the time we walked through the door until the time we left. The canapés with our drinks in the lounge before our meal were a real treat. Make sure you book as they were very busy. Thank you for a great food.

Came all the way from Hampshire to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Excellent service, interesting menu and as vegetarians we could actually choose everything on the menu for a change. A great place for a romantic meal for two or special occasion or just to have a nice meal out. Make sure you book.
