Went here for my birthday last night. Excellent food, great service, lovely ambience. Only disappointment was that we were told we could choose from either the set menu or the a la carte at 20% off. So...I ordered the set menu and my Mum and sister ordered the a la carte. When the bill came there was no 20% off... More

Met some friends in York on Thursday. We ate lunch at the Lime House for the first time and all I can say is why has it taken us so long to discover a place like this. To start with the lady that greeted us was absolutely first class, big beaming smile and nothing was to much trouble. And when... More

Enjoyed the venison and lamb there last night. Food (and wine!) were excellent. Well thought out dishes and the waiting staff were very friendly. Well worth a visit!

I visited here with my five friends after seeing the reviews and at how well priced the set menu was. We all enjoyed it so much. The service was dead on, the atmosphere was relaxed and informal but still had a high quality restaurant feeling to it. We all had two courses off the set menu for less than £16... More

This is my second visit to this fab restaurant! We visited on a Wednesday night and didn't expect it to be almost full (glad we booked!) so there was a great atmosphere. Like last time the food was absolutely delicious and served by a very friendly waitress! We will certainly be returning, again!!

Enjoyed a lovely lunch yesterday at this excellent restaurant. The value at £13.25 for 3 courses is outstanding especially as the high quality of ingredients is maintained. There is a good selection of appetising dishes, complemented by plenty of wines by the glass or carafe. We will definitely return.

Having visited on a busy Friday evening, I cannot recommend The Lime House highly enough. I visited with a party of 11 people and from the moment we arrived staff were accommodating, with warm welcomes and friendly manors. We were impressed by the flawless timing of each course. Everyone's meals arrived conjointly, so no one was left waiting. The food... More
