Went for our dinner on a Friday night for my partners birthday. We were greeted by a friendly staff member who took us to our table and even asked if there was a certain table we would prefer. We placed our order 10 minutes after arriving and did not wait long for our starter and main course. Our meal was... More

Waited for 45 mins for food, ordered the paella to share which looked lovely on the menu. Food came eventually dry bread, no butter and no plates to eat out of. The paella consisted of 2 small prawns, and three dried out mussels, with loads of rice. Food was cold and looked nothing like the picture on the menu. The... More

Waited ages to be seated even though the place was empty. Menu I was given was all sticky. It's one of my pet hates when in a restaurant, it doesn't take a genius to give it a wipe if it's dirty. Noticed about half way through my meal that the seat next to me was covered in loom bands so... More

Popped into the Lime Kiln after shopping at the outlet mall. It was fairly quiet and we were shown to our table by a waitress who looked like she couldn't really be bothered. I ordered an omelette and my dining partner the fish and chips. The omelette when it arrived was undercooked and totally disgusting. I gamely tried a bite... More

I've tried this place several times, none of which have been great, keep giving it the benefit of the doubt and going again but it just doesn't improve. Went today for lunch with my 2 daughters, wasn't too busy and were seated fairly quickly. Drinks & orders taken in good time. All good I thought. No. It took far too... More

Hubby and I went for a meal, Thursday night at the Limekiln, Livingston. Not very impressed with the meal we had (fish, chips and peas), plus 2 drinks. Thought couldn"t go very wrong with that! tiny piece of fish and a handful of frozen chips and frozen garden peas. Food was bland, and the quality of the meal was poor.... More

After waiting for over 45 minutes after placing our order we asked a waitress what was going on as others who came in after us had their meals. Her reply was I am not your waitress, very rude, but asked the manager who took our order, we waited some more then told the manager we were leaving. It was the... More

The only thing I would say in our meal was the service, the food was awful. Firstly we sat down and the table was sticky and smelled, I think they used a dirty smelly cloth to wipe the table before we got there, our napkins and arms stuck to the table, we should have left right then. The menu is... More

Went here for supper. The place was empty! One other table. Took ages for starters, when they came my partners wasn't very hot & mine was almost burnt! Mains took ages, we both had lasagne. Very watery & tasteless. Sooo disappointed as we'd had a long drive down from Aberdeenshire & was starving! I didn't eat mine. My partner did... More

Sat for quite a while before having our order taken, then a 45 minute wait for our starters, then the same again for our mains. My food was fine but both people having steaks had them incorrectly cooked. Would not fault the servers as they explained it was a lack of front of house & kitchen staff which is a... More
