Went there to celebrate our anniversary of meeting 11 years previously. Not as formal as I expected, but great menu and my sea bream was sublime. The melon sorbet was a tad disappointing though - it didn't really taste of anything. The staff were fantastic though, and the place was packed with a good ambience.

Everything was lovely and a very enjoyable evening. Nice relaxed atmosphere and food was presented very well. Larger portions than we are used to but seems normal for Yorkshire.

My husband and I recently ate here as part of our wedding anniversary celebrations and we had a brilliant evening. From the moment we arrived we were given a really warm welcome by our waitress (Jess) and sat in the front part of the restaurant which was really cosy. After an aperitif of a mini-bottle of Prosecco (lovely idea to... More

What a fantastic evening we all had for my Dads 60th birthday. We were a party of 13 and the service was exceptional. I had the fillet steak and it was cooked to perfection. I would reccomend this wonderful little restaurant to all, and I shall be back in the very near future.

Go early or reserve a seat as this little restaurant is (justifiably) very popular. Excellent home-made cuisine with a different and varied menu. Attentive and knowledgable staff

The waitress was very friendly and welcoming and kindly let us sit for quite some time after we had finished as we were too full to move!! The food itself was delicious and such good value,... More

A return trip to any restaurant , particularly when you have previously had a meal to remember, can sometimes be an anti-climax. No such worries with the Lime House. As soon as the first course arrived we new the meal was going to be as good as ever. The service as always was attentive without going over the top. The... More

I have eaten several times at The Lime House and every time I visit it just keeps getting better and better and is now my No. 1 restaurant choice in the City. My most recent visit was on a Saturday evening with my wife. We booked a table in advance and upon arriving at the restaurant were greeted warmly by... More
