Fabulous choice on menu and meals were brilliantly presented. Surroundings are bistro like and kitchen is visible. Staff have... read more

In many ways this is a lovely place, with a relaxed approach and a very friendly staff team. The menu and specials offer a good selection, and portions are generous. The cooking is mixed. Our starter of crab cakes were okay but could have done with a little more crab. Meat and fish main dishes (we had lamb and tuna)... More

My wife and I went here on 30th April for a special occasion and we were not disappointed. We both had fillet steak and it was amazing. The staff were very friendly and courteous and as I'm quite a fussy eater, the girls went out of their way to get me starter which I would enjoy. We usually go to... More

8 of us visited Lilburns whilst on a weekend break recently. We had pre booked and received a very warm welcome. The food was excellent as was the service. This business is family run and the food home cooked. The crab cakes are the best I have ever tasted and the white chocolate cheesecake is simply divine. There was a... More

Not a lot I can add to previous excellent reviews except that the chef also came out to answer a query about a sauce, the food was excellent and the chatty, friendly staff were a credit. The chefs passed my 'can they do a rare steak?' test with flying colours - it was brilliant. We will definitely go back next... More

Lilburn's was busy when we arrived and we hadn't booked, but they squeezed us in and made us welcome. The food was delicious with good veggie options. At the end of the evening we chatted to the owner and chef - his passion for his work is clearly infectious and adds flavour to the food and the atmosphere at Lilburn's

My wife and I turned up without a booking and even though they were fully booked they managed to accommodate us. The service was good, the food was good and a decent choice. The desserts were superb so save plenty of room. Tucked out of the way but worth hunting for.
