We visited on a day out, and had informed the chef about a number of restrictions my companion has regarding food allergies. The menu she was shown was so extensive, it was on a par with the "regular" menu. The food was superb, and there was no effort too much for the staff, who were very attentive. This is a... More

The Lime House is one of those little gems that you find every now and then and once found never forgotten. There were four of us booked in on a busy Saturday evening. We shared a simple starter of olives, feta, bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, delicious. Three of us had ordered the Yorkshire duo and one the... More

I went to The Lime House last night and had the most delicious meal. I took my parents and boyfriend for a meal and it was smiles all round as we tucked into some good hearty, classic english food! I had the Duo of Steak which consisted of a fillet steak which had been cooked beautifully and a steak suet... More

We'd booked at this place based on the reviews. No complaints about the food etc - definitely give I a go. What almost put us off was that it seemed empty. However, while the front was empty the back wasn't - so there's a risk that passing trade may skip to another restaurant if it doesn't look busy - most... More

Myself and the wife both had Pan-fried Goats Cheese with a Polenta Crust with a Roast Beetroot & Rocket Salad to start, a bit disappointed mine was cold and the wife's was lukewarm but other than that very tasty. I am... More

Had lunch here with my wife on the first weekend of the York Christmas markets. Relieved that we booked a table few days earlier as it's small place and was fully booked. Excellent food from the £10 a head 2-course menu. Been here in the evening on previous visits to York and always satisfied. Recommended

Great food delivered in inventive way. My wife has a diary allergy and this was mentioned before our visit. Upon arrival they had kindly altered the menu to point out which dishes she could eat. Nice touch. Would have given 5 out of 5, but staff a little rushed, therefore service not too personable. Quirky, small restaurant and would highly... More

I visited the lime house with some family and found it to be a lovely little venue with very simple but well presented fresh tasty dishes. The prices are not cheap but at the same time not overly priced, especially for the quality of food and service. I would recommend!

We ate here whilst on a short break in York. It was recommended by the owner of the guest house we stayed at and we weren't disappointed. The menu is not extensive but there is something for everyone on it. The restaurant itself is very cosy and the service was excellent. I had the scallops risotto for starters and the... More
