Don't be put off by the frontage of this restaurant

We booked here for 12 people and had a lovely meal outside - not the cheapest place in the world but much cheaper at lunchtime I believe and there is a nice garden area outside owner is Scottish - from Troon and he used to own the Wheatsheaf in Symington

We visited the Lemon Tree last night upon recommendation as it being one of the more established restaurants in the area. We took our table in the garden which was fine, although I have to agree with previous reviews it could do with a facelift. Nevertheless, the waitresses were really lovely and very attentive and so the 'ambience' could be... More

What a great find! this restaurant is run by Robert and Anne and some wonderful friendly, helpful staff. We ate here twice in a week as the food was fantastic, great potions, well presented and extremely tasty. We went (partner and I) for lunch on the 2 occasions and wasn't disappointed at all. The outside area was small but pretty... More

We loved this place, the food was outstanding and very generous, although off the beaten track, it is worth the little drive we made ... I would highly recommend, the staff and the owner were very friendly and willing to please... Please go and try it, you will not be disappointed ...

The Lemon Tree has been on our list to visit and when friends suggested we meet them for lunch we readily agreed. We were met with a friendly welcome from Robert the owner (and chef). The staff were extremely efficient, friendly and attentive. We started with the daily special of avocado and mango salad with. Roquefort dressing. I had pork... More

Lovely place for a meal, a little bit different from the norm. An original menu with home cooked food to order. The starters are fabulous and quite big, the mains are lovely large portions and come served with veg which is a rarity. Puds are very nice too. All in all great food in a rustic style atmosphere. Waitress very... More
