My Mum, Dad, Brother & I went here for an evening meal on our LEJOG Cycling Challenge, it was absolutely brilliant food and service and really homely, welcoming and accommodating. My Dad is Gluten-Free and my Mum has allergy to peppers and they could have such a lovely meal as well. The chef made my Mum a special adaptation of... More

Service,food, drinks were excellent, the dining room was cosy , would have preferred to sit in a lounge to have drinks and order food rather than sit in the dining room all night

This small hotel/restaurant is perfect for those who enjoy top quality food served in a homely intimate setting, food is of the highest quality served by the owner who is very knowledgeable about the produce he is serving. Our meal was faultless and will stay in the memory for a long time.

A small restaurant with very high standards of service and quality. The menu is relatively limited but what is available is of high standard. The wine menu is more extensive, but some of the wines seemed comparatively pricey but there were some very good wines at under £20.

It is always a treat to visit The Limetree. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellent. This restaurant is special and, in our opinion, number one in Moffat. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

I can not rate this lovely restaurant highly enough. We went with 3 generations, the youngest being 19 months. They catered for all of us beautifully. Plastic cups and special small cuttlery made me feel so at ease about bringing young children to what seems a very grown up place. The food was first rate, the staff helpful and friendly.... More

Every time we visit the Limetree Restaurant we have loved our meal and this visit was just as special. The fish chowder was delicious as was the main course of local area lamb. Melt in the mouth The chef combines flavours with such talent and skill. Nice portion size and well priced wine. Highly recommend and wish we lived nearer!

Wonderful menu which can be tweaked a little to your tastes - for instance, no black pudding or vegetables instead of salsa. Delicious homemade breads. Asked for a large portion of vegetables and it was willingly provided (at no extra cost). Our host was very attentive and friendly and us feel very welcome in his elegant establishment. Tables nicely spaced... More
