Our first visit here, we booked for the NYE late dinner sitting and had a fabulous time. A good set menu with ample choice and every dish was excellent on what must have been a very busy night for the kitchen. All the staff were lovely, friendly and attentive which in turn made for a super atmosphere in the restaurant.... More

Used to go her often when visiting Sussex however, sadly this place seems to have gone downhill. Recent visit it seemed understaffed and food could only be described as bland. Also noticed that there is no food hygiene score on the door, upon checking on Mid sussex council website limes has only received two stars which is frankly very poor... More

I have had afternoon tea in many places and this was the most reasonable price for the quality and amount of food presented. Very enjoyable ....would certainly recommend it.

Dinner for 2 - chicken liver parfait, shoulder of lamb (slow cooked), partridge, and a shared dessert of profiteroles filled with grand marnier cream, just gorgeous. My fifth dinner at Limes, never disappointed. Lovely staff, great atmosphere.

Friendly welcome from staff. Interesting menu and specials. After ordering were offered some unusual treats. Our choice of dessert was a 15 minute wait due to being cooked fresh. Restaurant very popular, recommend to book. Once full, conversations can get lost in noise levels. Unused glasses were left on table, plates not cleared quickly so table felt cluttered. About £30...
