After hearing raving reviews from friends I was enjoying a meal in the lemon tree, however I was extremely disappointed. The food was merely average, I had chicken straganoff, it was bland and I felt I could have made it myself, even though I'm not the most skilled cook. I had the goats cheese tart for starters and it was also underwhelming. Many people describe the restaurant as 'cosy' however, in my opinion it is cramped and lacks intimacy, we could hear every word of the conversations going on around us. Service was fast and friendly however and the early bird was good value. I would not be in a rush back to the restaurant and I believe other restaurants in town are much better.
