We visited the Limes to celebrate our Wedding anniversary on a saturday evening.The food is very good with a good choice to suit most tastes. There is a seasonal menu plus a list of specials and we found all our choices were very good. I had a beetroot and goats curd salad to start and my husband had pork rillette.... More

We were a group of four and had a table booked for 1900 August 27th 2014. We were shown to our table and asked if we wanted to order drinks which we did and they arrived within a couple of minutes. We were given some sweet bread and a small cup of watercress soup (cold) while we were waiting for... More

My vague memory of eating at the Limes about four years ago involves a draughty corner, music blasting from a speaker directly above our heads, and lots of lime-green decor, all of which were more memorable than the food. The place has changed hands since then, and this time we got a delicious quiet Tuesday-evening meal of local rabbit with... More

My friend and I were in Lindfield, never having been there before, and checked out the various pubs and restaurants when it was time for lunch. We settled on Limes, and what a lovely lunch we had. So much so that I am now taking my parents there for their 72 (!!) wedding anniversary.

Visited here for a mid week meal for the first time following numerous recommendations. And now I am one of those people making the recommendation! The atmosphere here is delightful. Small, cosy restaurant gives it a very personal feel. Charming and warm. The food was also good - menu selection was nice and would describe as "modern british". Had some... More

The amuse bouche was smoked garlic hummus and I can review that by simply stating I would have liked more than one - but that's the nature of an amuse bouche, I suppose.. This was followed by lamb kofte, beautifully rare - as it should be, but perhaps not to everyone's sensitivities. This was served with an excellent mint and... More

Very smart bistro in the charming village of Lindfield. Despite close proximity to Haywards Heath (hard to find the gap!) this is one of the prettiest villages in West Sussex, currently thriving. A stroll along the. High. Street brings you to the Limes, with its Georgian bow window. Step inside to a chic, well designed restaurant. Seating means not sitting... More

I found Limes after buying a groupon deal back in February and have been back every month since! The food is of excellent quality and tastes sublime - the duck breast I had on my last visit was easily the best I've ever tasted! The daily menu has 6 starters/mains and desserts and there are a couple of specials each... More
