Critics Review
The perfect countryside retreat!
8/10
Limes of Lindfield is an elegant, small restaurant in the heart of the picturesque village of Lindfield, situated in West Sussex – forty minutes north of Brighton. It has a relaxed and stylish feel about it and very friendly staff. I was welcomed with a warm hello and seated at the bright bay window seat which was great for people-watching along the pretty tree-lined high street of Lindfield. Limes of Lindfield is an elegant, small restaurant in the heart of the picturesque village of Lindfield, situated in West Sussex – forty minutes north of Brighton. It has a relaxed and stylish feel about it and very friendly staff. I was welcomed with a warm hello and seated at the bright bay window seat which was great for people-watching along the pretty tree-lined high street of Lindfield. We started by ordering a couple of their American-style pale ales. All the beer and ale they had to offer was locally sourced (along with most of their other alcoholic beverages). We chose one from The Long Man brewery which we didn’t regret! It was light and refreshing, perfect for a humid afternoon. The lunch menu had a couple of options for a two or three course meal at either £14.95 or £16.95. Alternatively, you could have any main course for £12.95 or choose from their ‘Quick Bites’ menu which includes homemade soup and pork belly sandwich with chips (prices from £3.50-7.50). We couldn’t turn down such a great deal so with our hungry appetites that afternoon we went for the three courses! I liked the simplicity of the menu; you aren’t bombarded with too many choices which I think shows a good sign of refinement and quality. There was a tasty choice of vegetarian options too, they have monthly Vegetarian Feast Nights so they definitely know how to cook vegetables in an innovative way.

Booked Limes Bistro for a special occasion evening meal, whilst we were staying in the area. The food was exquisite, and excelled our high expectations, with a good selection on both menus.The staff were very friendly and attentive, and it was a great experience, and one that we would love to repeat if we are in the area again.

We had the most amazing time! The food was incredible! And we were so taken aback to be offered seconds of everything! The wine was delicious, and really went with the various courses, we were really impressed. We will certainly be returning! And will be popping in to Sussex Wines to purchase some of our favourites!! Thank you!

We had a lovely lunch at Limes on Sunday for my daughter's birthday. The service was very efficient and friendly just as we would expect from Limes. The food was excellent as usual and the menu choices were very good. Will be back again very soon!

Limes is a wonderful dining experience. The menu of tried and tested favourites is both innovative and delicious with new dishes added on a regular basis. The staff are polite and friendly and the atmosphere cordial.

Really enjoy our breakfast. Our little one wasn’t well and didn’t know what she wanted to eat. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate for us and make sure she was happy. Nothing was too much trouble e.g they were happy to serve anything to her - as long as they had it! Can not wait to go again.

I have never had a bad experience at The Limes. The food was exceptional. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We enjoyed every minute.

No offer of drinks for the late arrivals (me!) and quite a wait before orders taken. But thereafter perfect. Thank you.

We had an enjoyable group dinner .The service was as before attentive without being too obtrusive. The meal were good if not spectacular and between us we tried most of the menu choices . A slight moan about the sea bass portion and no side dish to accompany it

I would just like reassurance about the added service charge that this money actually goes to the staff and is not used for other things. We thought the vegetarian feast was outstanding and liked the generosity of the portions, it would have been nice at the end if the chef/chefs had come out as it would have been nice to see the team behind the amazing food and give them a well deserved clap.
