SquareMeal Review of The Lime Tree West Didsbury

Bronze Award

An award-winning family-run business, The Lime Tree has been providing reliably good contemporary British cooking since 1987. Much of the produce comes from the family farm at Macclesfield Forest; fresh bread and pasta is made in-house. Brunch, set lunch and Sunday menus supplement the à la carte. A generous starter of plump, seared king scallops with smoky chorizo, cauliflower purée and rocket was packed with flavour, while an elegant main-course trio of market fish included perfectly cooked monkfish, sea bass and hake served with crushed Jersey royals, spinach and rich beurre blanc. Pan-fried Dutch calf’s liver was a robust, hearty dish, the tender meat seared outside and pink within, accompanied by punchy garlic mash, crisp onion rings and sweet onion confit. Desserts feel comfortingly old-school – velvety warm chocolate torte with pistachio ice cream, say – and arrive with wine pairings. The friendly service and crowd-pleasing menus delight the denizens of Didsbury.

Still as good today after 35yrs

The Lime Tree never disappoints. Beautiful food, lovely setting and attentive staff. Still as good today as it was when we first went 35yrs ago.
