Regularly visited Lemon & Duke in years gone by but due to COVID I had no visited city centre in some time. Visited this week and could not wait to go for lunch as we would normally have done pre-COVID and once again we wer...enot disappointed. Firslty from a COVID perspective, everything is as it should be, vaccination certs and ID required and checked (doesnt happen everywhere) before we were shown to well spaced out table. All staff members wore masks. Professional and very efficient service was always evident here but I must remark that its been somehow improved upon since due to the pandemic. We were served by the wonderful Aneta who was very courteous, attentive and professional. I always order the hoi sin wings and was not disappointed, they were as good as I remember. Chilli fries and truffle and parmesan fries as well as the chicken burger were ordered and were delicious. Really enjoyed the meal and the experience both the room itself and the excellent service, well done, I wont be leaving it as long the next time to return!!More

Came here for lunch for a treat for Christmas and overall was really really let down by the service and the food. I ordered the duck flat bread, the portion was very generous but found the meat very dry and with very little dressing, it...was not really enjoyable. My friend ordered the steak baguette which was really nice! It is also worth noting that our food was not made to order as it arrived a little over 5 minutes after ordering. The service overall was a let down and not what I had anticipated from a restraunt as highly regarded as Lemon and Duke. However, I do understand that we visited at peak lunch time and the restraunt may have been understaffed due to covid. I’m not one for leaving bad reviews but felt the reviews I read previously online did not reflect my experience here what so ever.More
