We had lunch in the new-ish cafe restaurant Lime Tree Kitchen on station street recently. I have to say it gets my vote as the best place to eat in Lewes. Inventive cooking, good local ingredients, good portion size ( I couldn't finish my eggs benedict), medium price range, but affordable for lunch, good friendly, but not in your face service and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I really hope more people start to go there as it was pretty empty when we went.
My only criticism is the chairs are a bit uncomfy for sitting and eating a three-course meal. Maybe provide some cushions ???
Oh and I have no connection to the owners/chef etc.

I've been there once - really nice place, good food and drink, pleasant staff and atmosphere.
And I've got no connection either.

Menu looks interesting, wine prices are a tad expensive, especially for 125ml glasses.

I would go there a lot more often however if they would put on a decent cheap(ish) house wine. The cost of the wine (delicious and very well chosen that it is) means I can't afford to go more often. I'm hoping the nice guy who cooks and runs the place reads this! Something drinkable by the bottle and half bottle would be great and I think more people would go more often.....
It's a lovely place, nice atmosphere, very relaxed and great food.

I agree with BS. Good restaurant but they are havin a laff over the drink prices. Markup is horrendous. A good reasonably priced house wine would bring me back but not otherwise.

What I really like is they are using local suppliers for all meat, fish and veg - and are still cheaper than the real food company which frankly is a rip off.

I see it's at 14 Station street. Where is that, at the bottom of the hill where Chaula's started out?

I still might give it a go, despite the wine prices....

I agree with you lot - the Limetree is a bit of an undiscovered gem - we should spread the word and keep it open. (Me no connection either)

I have friends visiting in ten days time and got all excited. But it's not open on a Sunday! Back to the Pelham Arms then - shame.

Yes they definitely do Sunday lunch - we spent a long time talking to the chef, Alex and they do a diff roast every Sunday - pop in and book or give him a call, nice bloke and committed to great cooking.

I meant Sunday evening, BB, but maybe I should persuade my guests to come early! (The Kings Head doesn't do meals on Sunday evenings either, so my other option isn't open to me either)
