Visited Saturday evening without a reservation and were greeted by a friendly waitress, who had great knowledge of the dishes and flavours. The food was well presented and tasted as delicious as it sounded. Fantastic service by all who served us, and great value for money, will definitely recommend.

My second visit was even more delicious than the first. Lovely fusion of flavours, not sure how they do it. Definitely one of the best restaurants in West Sussex.

We had an extremely enjoyable meal here with the whole family. The standard of food was excellent with a nice choice, even off a set three course menu. The roast dinners that we had were all of a good portion size. Hardly any gravy though so had to ask for extra. The starters went down well. My only grumble about... More

Pat in the kitchen + Chloe and Harrison serving. Great food, very nice and friendly service and a very nice atmosphere. My wife and I have just arrived in the village and decided to celebrate by trying out Limes - a very good choice. With seriously generous portions, a 3-course meal needs to be dealt with slowly and with determination... More

We went to the Limes as a family, four adults and two children, to try the new Sunday lunch menu. We were not disappointed. We had an excellent Sunday lunch. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the roast beef was cooked to perfection and voted the 'best ever'. We all had three delicious courses and found nothing to criticise and a... More

Shared a delicious lunch here with my daughter & we both agreed it was absolutely delicious. I had pork belly with pea purée, new potatoes & caramelised onions. My daughter had Nari goreng with prawns. Two very different dishes which were yum,beautifully presented & reasonably priced. The wine list was extensive & also affordable.

Having I checked in advance there were choices for vegetarians, I was assured that there would be at least two. There were just two. The curry was lovely, as was the goats' curd salad with beetroot (an inspired combination). The tomato sauce with the cannelloni had a charred flavour - perhaps it was meant to, but we couldn't eat it.... More

Dear Jane, Thank you for your positive comments about our food and service, they are very much appreciated although I'm sorry you found the tomato sauce not to your liking. I would hate for you to think we intentionally gave you a false impression regarding the number of vegetarian choices available. On the evening of your visit we had two... More
