We have been here many times of the last few years and it has changed hands a couple of times but the present owners do not disappoint. Food is always good, the service is excellent, Wine List is good if a little pricey. They do a Thai Vegetarian Feast night once a month too and that is well worth the... More

We had a lovely meal, lots of choice even though it's a small menu. Good service. Pretty pricy but different to other places locally.

Lunch in late March. The Bistro was not too busy, but enough diners to make a good ambience. Three of us to fête Mother's Day. One of our party needed a low potassium meal - not the normal vegan-type request. The staff had already researched what would suit and offered a super choice of interesting food for that diner. Impressive!... More

Had an amazing Massaman curry in the Limes a couple of weeks ago. It was so good I asked for the recipe and, amazingly, got it! It was a great success and friends are now asking me for the recipe. Tempting to say it's my own but don't think anyone would be convinced! Will definitely be going back for more.

We visit this restaurant regularly and are never disappointed. Last night I had home smoked mackerel followed by a vegetarian curry which was absolutely delicious. Others in the party were equally impressed. They use local ingredients too. Imaginative and a real little gem in the village. I would certainly recommended.

My husband,son daughter & I went for a Mother's day lunch on Sunday to Limes. I called up and made a reservation TWO months ago and requested a window table.

Dear Libby, Thank you for your review, It is great to know that you enjoyed our service and food on Mother’s Day.
