An extremely good lunch for two......

Had a very nice lunch from the set menu which was well cooked and good value for money. Only one small quibble and one that is easily rectified - is that a reservation was made for this booking and when we arrived our table was not already laid for us. Apart from that a most enjoyable experience... read more

4 of us had lunch from the set menu. From the time we entered to the time we left the whole experience was first rate. The staff were welcoming and so efficient and nothing was too much trouble. There was something on the menu to please us all. Food was wonderful and well cooked and presented. Limes is a place... More

Sunday lunch in pretty village that lends itself to a post munch stroll. There was a great welcome from the two 'front of house' team. They were busy with a pretty full restaurant but they stayed reassuringly calm. Service was prompt and cheery. Starters were well presented and tasty. Not chap, but folks didn't seem to mind! My roast lunch... More

I had wanted to eat at Limes for quite a while and was not disappointed. The food was excellent , the only problem was to choose what to have from their wonderful menu ! Eventually I had the duck and bacon salad to start , followed by sea bass both of which were delicious and beautifully cooked. There was no... More

I've known about Limes for sometime, but before tonight I have never visited. I am really glad I have, as I shall make sure I go again. I went with some family and we all had a great time. On arrival the staff were polite they went that extra mile to make the evening even better. I liked the way... More

We ate at Limes on a Sunday lunchtime. Easy parking in the street outside, we were warmly welcomed by the most friendly staff. The restaurant is immaculate, bright and airy. The menu is comprehensive offering far from run of the mill fare. However, being a Sunday, three of us had the roasts, one beef, one pork and one lamb and... More

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 were only 2... 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
