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.

Absolutely fantastic experience, my wife was delighted with her 30th surprise meal. Couldn't have asked for more.

The vegan night was really special. Both in terms of food and ambience. Limes took great care of us and even helped celebrated my friend’s birthday.

We’ve been to quite a few vegan feast nights at Limes & have always enjoyed them. It doesn’t feel like you get as much for your money now as before which is disappointing.

Would have been nice to get clean plates between courses rather than keeping the same plate between appetizer, starter and main.

We really enjoyed afternoon tea and will come again. Only 2 comments - the beef in the sandwich was fatty/stringy and the heating was on far too high!

Food was delicious and well presented. It was a huge portion and we ended up having to take the cake home. It was good value for money. I would have liked to have had a cafetière if coffee rather than a single cup.

Afternoon tea for 11, we stayed beyond 4.30 but no pressure to leave. Cakes and scones were delicious and very fresh.

Nice restaurant and good scones with jam and cream but not impressed with glass cups. Tea should be served in china cups, particularly when it is a cream tea!
