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.

We enjoyed a fantastic lunch yesterday with friends, and would recommend Limes to everyone. Consistently great food, the menu changes and the service is always warm and friendly. Brilliant for lunch or dinner. Thank you.

We had Sunday lunch which provided a good choice of options. The only disappointment was the Vegetarian option of a chick pea pancake that was basically a thick pancake with a dollop of tomatoes and chickpeas. No garnish or thought to presentation and lacking in flavour. The venison was a bit disappointing in that it didn't have much flavour and wasn't seasoned.. However, the Roast lamb and the Beef were really good as were the starters (although the tiny balls of goats cheese in the Beetroot salad could have been a bit more substantial.. All that said we had a really lovely lunch with attentive, unobtrusive service and a sense that we were welcome to take our time. We'd definitely go back and as the menu is changed regularly do not believe the dishes that disappointed reflected negatively as a rule against the restaurant.

The team at the Limes managed a special lunch for 25 people for me. Their service, attention to detail and engaging nature made it a truly memorable occasion. Highly recommended. Thank you Mike and the team x

As one of the few decent restaurants in Lindfield, I applaud the effort gone with this place. If only if was just that little bit better. Service is inattentive and not very knowledgable about the wines they sell. If they had just a little bit more floor know how they would have us coming back more regularly. The lighting in the rear of the seating area is quite bright and not as soft as the front - if they changed the bulbs in the rear the whole place would have a better feel and be more inviting. On the whole the food is what keeps us coming back but this time the starters were just OK, the liver parfait lacking seasoning and the beetroot while good was just average. Our mains were very good. We probably would have had dessert had we not had to ask for the dessert menu 3 times over 20 minutes.

We’ve visited a few times now and have never been disappointed. Relaxed atmosphere, excellent and varied choices with some unique and tasty twists and warm, friendly services. We’ll continue to frequent this lovely bistro.

We had a really lovely meal. I only gave 4 stars for atmosphere because it was a little quiet that night. Otherwise we really enjoyed our visit and will be back soon.

We were a group of 8 for breakfast and I received positive feedback from the others. The restaurant was busy and we still received good service. The group has voted to return again.
