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.

The Thai feast last Thursday was amazing! The Gluten free vegetarian feast title doesn’t do it justice, as many would read this as bland and uninspired. It was a festival of colours, flavours and textures, a true feast for all the senses! The wine pairing was great too, proving that you can marry oriental food and wine to great results. Thank you Pat and everyone who made this evening a night to remember 😊🙏🙏

This is the first time we have visited Limes in about four years. The Gluten Free corn bread was really lovely. All four of us enjoyed our starters and mains and thought the menu choices were very creative. Friendly, attentive service from the waiting staff too.

Wonderful food in a lovely relaxed atmosphere and tentative staff. The food was superb with a sensible range of choice. Will hopefully make one of the vegetarian feast's soon! Thanks for a lovely Saturday evening.

We had an excellent meal on Wednesday night. The service was friendly and efficient, the complimentary starter was delicious and my husband's steak and chips were the best he has had from any restaurant in a long time. The set menu is really good value for money. Looking forward to returning soon.
