I always enjoy eating at the Lime Tree, particularly as they regularly change their menu, meaning I can usually try something new. It serves modern British/European food, which is usually delicious! This visit was no different and my wife and I enjoyed all three courses that we had. If you're around south manchester, eat here!

I wasn't prepared for for the warm, friendly and sincere hospitality demonstrated by all of the staff and particularly by the hostess. In my experience this is rarely found in city centre restaurants and it's what makes... More

I went to The Lime Tree in a party of 30 business people. We were warmly welcomed and promptly served. I had a really difficult choice to make when it came to ordering because the menu featured so many of my favourites. There were plenty of staff serving, but I was amazed how quickly we were served (considering we had... More

Visited with my partner and my parents primarily for the early evening menu. I judged by the website that the value for money of the early evening menu was very good (2 courses £15, 3 for £18). I tried most of the food our group ordered as the portions were very healthy. The bread with the soup was unbelievable actually.... More
