I had the scallops for starters which were brilliant but they were bettered by the lamb kleftico which was absolutely beautiful. We finished with lemon brûlée which was really nice. Overall the experience and quality of food were of great quality.

We took friends to the Lemon Tree last Friday evening and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. All the food was delicious and the service was very good too. A nice ambience and nothing was too much trouble. Have been a few times before and always had a great meal.

We went to Lemon Tree for Fathers Day and had a very enjoyable meal. The portion sizes are more than ample - we had the Risotto Al Fungi, Chicken Chasseur, Carbonara, Sea Bass Fillet and Asparagus and my little one had the pizza (this is huge!). We all had dessert which was also lovely, especially the Tiramisu. All meals were... More
