We came here for a lovely lunch recently using a travel zoo taster voucher. I had heard of this hotel and Angela Hartnett and had always wanted to experience the food but found the hotel/restaurant to be quite expensive. We were running late for our lunch but we telephoned ahead to advise. From the moment we got there the service... More

Went for lunch and had drinks on the terrace before moving into the restaurant where we had the 5 course taster menu. The food was really good and they use fresh local produce. The staff were excellent and very attentive and explained each course and ingredients to us. I would recommend this restaurant and will definitely be returning.

We had a fabulous lunch at Limewood. We had the taster menu as part of a promotional offer. From start to finish the service was spot on, we were neither rushed nor overlooked. We started with drinks in the stunning courtyard and then moved to the dining area at our request. The food was beautifully presented and imaginative, we had... More

We took my parents to Hartnett Holder & Co for Sunday lunch to celebrate my father's 60th birthday and could not have wished for a better experience. Décor at Lime Wood effortlessly blends a country house setting with modern furnishings, which provides an excellent eating experience especially if you have prime view of the wonderful gardens. We all went for... More

Lovely combination of quality, professionalism and informality. Interesting food cooked and served with care. Not cheap though!

We had a memorable meal at Limewood Hotel in wonderful surroundings. The food was superb and the staff first rate - James who looked after us had recently been promoted from Hotel Porter - a young good looking bloke but boy did he know his stuff and was so attentive. We started with Mackerel Cerviche and I had slices of... More

As this restaurant is set in the lovely Limewood hotel where we were staying we just had to eat there as we'd heard a bit about it and were looking for some really good food. We decided to concentrate on fish dishes and so had the scallops (excellent) and the mackerell ceviche to start. We'd heard the pasta was superb... More

An anniversary lunch prompted us to choose something a little different. Italian inspired dishes. Choice of A' la Carte, table d'hôte or Chef's taster menu. We chose the table d'note giving us a choice of two (£19.50) or three courses (£25.00). We were also allowed to choose a course from the a' la carte and pay any difference in cost.... More

Tastless cod and stringy, inedible sugar snap peas. Everything else was great, especially the service and surroundings.
