The outside of this restaurant is unassuming but once inside the decor is tasteful with clean lines. The atmosphere was good, the staff friendly and helpful. Good food choices on the standard menu and daily specials. My meal was cooked and presented well and our other diners said how good their choices were too. We would go back

Having arranged to play golf locally we searched for a dinner venue to suit our taste and style and the Limes Bistro seemed to fit the bill. We were not disappointed! The venue was fantastic, the food was sublime and the service was simply first class in every way, even though it was very busy. A really big thank you... More

We didn't know our family were going to visit us on Father's Day and so hadn't booked a meal out until just 48 hours beforehand. What a good thing we hadn't booked anywhere else as we then decided to go to the Limes which was a complete revelation. Such professional staff who attended to our every need in such a... More

First experience - full English breakfast treat! Excellent food, really good breakfast. Lovely freshly squeezed orange juice. Good,friendly service. Reasonable price. had a great time, all except for the coffee which was not good - didn't really even taste like coffee. Such a shame. Otherwise, really highly recommend it.

We ate here as a family of four adults last week for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was excellent quality and freshly cooked, the service was very friendly and helpful and once they realised I was gluten free they ensured that everything I was given met those criteria...even bringing out freshly baked gluten free bread...

Great place to visit. Staff good and helpful. As I have diet issues they were very helpful and brought corn bread to start so didn't feel different to others. With all courses they helped me. Ended with a lovely scilian sweet wine.

Went here for a vegan Asian tasting menu with paired wines. The food was absolutely amazing, tasty, interesting and beautifully presented. I am not vegan but was bowled over by the depth of flavour in all the dishes. Great atmosphere and excellent service. The paired wines were excellent too and good to have someone to explain all about them.

Dear Lucy, Thank you for your lovely review of our monthly Gluten Free Vegan feast night, we are glad you enjoyed it. We work hard to ensure the menu is appealing to all and it is great to see non-vegans enjoying the event too! We hope to see you at Limes again soon. Regards, Mike More
