We'd not been here for about six maybe seven months and being bank holiday thought it was well worth another visit. Firstly it was lovely to see the same faces and the staff we knew from before we so welcoming and genuinely pleased to see us. The food as ever was AMAZING. Will definately NOT be leaving it so long again.

Food is of a very high standard, and at a reasonable price. Atmosphere is good, can feel a little cramped though when very busy. Service is good. Only gripe is that the menu is perhaps a little small - there wasn't anything that particularly grabbed me, but what I did order was very nice!

We had been planning to visit the lime tree for a long time but have never got around to it. Went last night & I now wish we had gone sooner. Everything was great from start to finish. Parking is always tricky around that area & we ended up being 15 mins late which is not ideal on a Saturday night but we couldnt have been made more welcome. I had the goats cheese with asparagus followed by a feta cheese & sunblush tomato tart. Both were delicious. My husband said his steak was the best he had tasted for a long time & we were fighting over the cheesecake we shared for desert. We will be back very soon.

A perfect three course lunch of fish cakes, pork and creme brulee. Excellent service from our waitress Kylie and all very reasonably priced for such a top restaurant.

It highlighted just how much young pretenders in the area still have to do to get close to this class act on Lapwing Lane.
