    Limes Restaurant is situated in the picturesque village of Lindfield, their lunch menu is definitely worth a drive from Brighton to. The squash gnocchi has to be one of my favourite things I’ve eaten recently.

  2. Andy Hopewell

    If you have got it in you on a weekend go for a drive into sussex and give Limes a test drive. Absolutely gorgeous! Found them on this site. Not the best ever breakfast but really good and Lindfield is such a great village to peruse through

  3. Angela Simmonds

    Definitely a venue to go out the way for with a menu with a difference. Occasional Asian influences with bistro classics. Great for a trip into the country for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and evenings. Warm welcome guaranteed! We tried the scallops followed by lamb cutlets. Great varied menu with refreshing intriguing twists to dishes.
