Visited with a foodie friend from the antipodes recently having not been in a while. Decent three option set lunch menu is good value & quality. Wine list extensive, mark ups a bit OTT but to be expected in top end establishment.. Attentive, friendly service

Limewood is a splendid Georgian pile & the setting of Hartnett Holder & Co very nice with many tables looking out to the beautiful formal grounds. Decor is upscale-clubby with comfy, bright coloured leather button back chairs & banquettes. The vibe is easy going, there’s...More
