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.

My friends and I had an amazing time at Limes yesterday, the food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I had the vegan afternoon tea which was delicious and the best I’ve had, and my friends had the normal afternoon tea, which they both said was delicious too! Thank you for a lovely afternoon!

Wonderful meal. We had a selection of dietary requirements and every single one was catered for without fuss. The new vegan Thai menu is fabulous. I’ll have to make several reservations to make sure I try each dish!

First time, and a Tuesday so atmosphere never going to be great but food absolutely first class, service from the young lady 5 star, service from the young lad lacking unfortunately showed He hadn't been trained which is a shame because everything else was spot on and remarkable value for money. We will be back.

I took my Goddaughter for afternoon tea and it was absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend. The scones were especially delicious, soft and warm and melt in the mouth.

We had an amazing evening and loved the food and wines served. Only had one dosh which we didnt like out of so so many tasters. Wines were clearly chosen by knowledgeable folk and went well with the dishes. Thank you all

We had a wonderful meal and the staff are all fantastic - but the service was very slow - there was a large group in at the same time which I suspect was the cause as the food is prepared fresh - a wonderful meal but would have liked the service to have been a little quicker
