Food was mediocre, nothing that stood out but the portion sizes were tiny. For the price I would have expected more or if the quality was better then I would have rated more. Service was slow between all courses especially desert where 25 minutes went by from being handed the desert menu to being asked what we wanted. No one... More

We received a warm welcome and were well looked after throughout our meal. The bistro is reasonably roomy and our large party was accommodated without a problem. The meal arrived within a reasonable time and the food was as ordered and met our expectations.

Nice layout and surroundings and a warm welcome. We decided to try here as its menu looked interesting from the website. It was excellent and a... More

We had a lot of recommendations from friends to go here. Sadly we were a little disappointed with the food & the speed of service. The staff were friendly, polite & helpful but not entirely on the ball. The food took longer to be served than we would have expected. Although presentation was good the flavours just didn't wake up... More

A visit for Sunday lunch at 1.30 proved to be an inspired choice as we were greeted by a friendly face, coats removed and gently sat at a comfortable table for 5 and furnished with menus all in the space of less than a minute from entering this lovely restaurant. Two choice for £17.50 or 3 courses for £20.95 represented... More

We visited the Limes on Saturday evening for a celebration. It was busy but not full. The food was wonderful. The staff were very friendly but service was slow. It took a very long time for our order to be taken, we had to ask twice for water and twice for the wine we had ordered. The waiter brought up... More

Myself and 3 friends recently had a wonderful meal at Limes. They have a monthly evening encouraging people to try authentic Thai food. It was a great night with super food, made all the more enjoyable by the informative (and delicious ) wine pairing. The service was attentive and friendly and they have just the right amount of covers which... More
