More than a place for ladies who lunch!

Lindfield is a lovely village and it is well served with restaurants and pubs. I was delighted to be treated to lunch there today. My friend had booked a table for 3 at 13:30. We arrived late as we had been looking at a silver gallery in the village so we felt pretty guilty especially as there... read more

Visited Limes Bistro last night for dinner. The place is terribly understaffed with one poor girl meeting and greeting, searing, taking orders and serving. She was able to keep her composure but she could do a lot better than this place. Asparagus was ok but the grilled sea bass arrived swimming in some tasteless brown yuck and was full of... More

Two of our party of four have wheat intolerances with one also being cow's milk intolerant - not a dietary fad, but genuine intolerances - a combination that can be tricky in any restaurant. Not so at Limes - our waitress knew almost as much about the food they offered as the chef - which is so unusual, there were... More

Visited 2 days in a row as I was so impressed the first time. Set lunches are such good value and the food is incredibly good - good ingredients, imaginative, well presented and very tasty. My favourite lunch spot in lindfield by a mile.

We last went to Limes for lunch about six years ago so another visit was somewhat overdue. Visiting our family on Saturday we walked into the village to have lunch and chose Limes. The menu had plenty of choice and there was also a specials board on the wall. We chose different meals and all agreed the food was very... More

We were lucky enough to experience the special Vegetarian Feast Night at Limes which was an exceptional experience with South Downs Cellars rising to the challenge of matching wines with such an astonishing array of 11 separate Japanese and Thai dishes from chef Patcharee. The staff were all so genuinely friendly and helpful. This restaurant has never disappointed us with... More

We booked for a birthday lunch, midweek. Glad we did as it got busy and there appeared to be only the one waitress for all the tables. They were struggling a little to clear the breakfast customers and the lunch menu hadn't been printed off when we were seated! However, the service was good and a reasonable wait for food.... More

My partner and I went to the Bistro a few years ago and thought it was very good. Today was quite disappointing. We ordered potted mackerel with toast for starter. This took over 20 minutes to arrive, not sure why a simple preprepared starter took so long? For main, my partner had the steak sandwich which was okay and I... More
