About The Lime Tree
Description brought to you by Manchester Confidential:
Manchester’s original modern British restaurant
This continental-style bistro is one of the city’s original purveyors of modern British cooking. The likes of mushroom ragu with a potato pancake or Aberdaron crab and tomato salad with Bloody Mary dressing were offered here long before they became modern British staples. They are pulled off under the natural light of this restaurant in a conservatory with aplomb by chef Jason Parker and his team. From a menu that prioritises local produce (that’s often sourced from the restaurant’s own smallholding Hardingland Farm near Macclesfield), menu could include butternut squash, pine nut and goat’s cheesecake with courgette fritters, dry-aged sirloin or a trio of rare-breed Cheshire pork with apple compote. The a la carte menu changes weekly. An elegant, largely French winelist is broken down into handy sections; Loire, Bordeaux, Beaujolais and so on. Owner Patrick Hannity’s opened a well-received restaurant of the same name in Bollington, Cheshire in 2012.
