Set lunches are fantastic

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

Having had some dismal meals in a hotel the week before and then a horrid Thai meal down the road in Lindfield the night before this meal was an absolute delight! I had the fish with sweet peppers and the potted mackerel to start - just great and a good price too.

We visited Limes Bistro for the first time on Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Inside it is light, but still intimate with a little music playing very quietly in the background. Arriving relatively early at 7pm, the friendly waitress was able to give us a choice of tables. The food is freshly prepared and we were kept occupied before... More
