We visited the restaurant on New Year's Eve and when booking had been informed it was a special menu priced at £50, which included canapés, soup, starter, mains and dessert. My husband chose the risotto with scallops which he said had a pleasantly delicate flavour. He was complimentary about his main course steak which he ordered rare and thought was... More

Went to the Lemon Tree for the first time on New Year's Eve - what a disappointment. We were told we could choose from the a la carte menu when booking but were given the set menu in arrival. When we questioned about the a la carte we were advised that wasn't available. We pushed and were told we could... More

I Ordered the Prawns and Steak from the Christmas evening set menu. The starters arrived I had 3 Prawns on my plate, 1 slice of bread and a dribble of a mediocre tomato sauce, not very inspiring. My main course was a TBone steak with a lot of fat and gristle, covered in garlic and parsely margerine. Served with Roast... More

Went to the Lemon Tree yesterday for their gourmet Christmas lunch, unaware that we were the first sitting we settled in for our 6 course meal. Course 1, the soup arrived immediately and no sooner had we put down our spoons than course 2 arrived. The so called comfort break sorbet came up with the same degree of haste. At... More
