The perfect summer lunch

Went for a business lunch on the hottest of July days. This is the perfect location with excellence everywhere. Staff were all attentive and not at all pushy or hurried, in spite of the heat. A drink in the garden was followed by and excellent 3 course lunch. Risotto as a starter was brilliant... read more

Service superb, good original choice of dishes, attractively presented. The potted crab was very good, as was the trifle.

We had a lovely lunchtime dining experience at Lime Wood. The staff were friendly and attentive. The three courses were lovely and very tasty.

Went to Lime Wood on a groupon deal, was made very welcome by the staff and the lunch menu we had was faultless, we had the potted crab starter followed by cod on pink potatoes and to finish we had a selection of cheeses, would come again.

I spent 5 days at Lime Wood hotel and had a truly tragic dinner at Hartnett Holder & Co. Our waiter had a horrible attitude and actually argued with two other tables when they complained about the agonizingly slow service and the mediocre food. I had the turbot, and it was pretty bad. The sauce had a chemical taste and... More

Every time we've been to this place, we've had to send things back. We're not grumpy or fussy, but uncooked is uncooked, no matter how impressed they try to make you feel by the surroundings (sorry, that doesn't work!). And then you get the bill, It's got to do a whole lot better before I shall say it is no... More

We had dinner as a party of 10. Over drinks beforehand had to ask for extra nibbles as 5 olives and a few Brazil's didn't really suffice! Lovely setting and comfortable table but chilly atmosphere, could have done with extra layers. We had to wait for our table for a very long time and were extremely hungry by the time... More

Just had lunch here, lovely setting and tastefully decorated. All our Main courses were so salty we couldnt eat half of it, we told the waiter who did not apologise at all, he said he would tell the chef, we got no discount either, though an apology would have been sufficient. We wont return sadly.
