“Delicious!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We have been here a few times since it has re opened with new owners and every time have had a brilliant meal. Our favourite is the Suffolk tapas night every Friday - every dish we have tried has been delicious and the service has always been great with a relaxed atmosphere. A great addition to Fram.

“Great place for coffee”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We're frequent visitors to the Lemontree Bistro and the coffee, cakes and service are always fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble for this young team.

“A lovely place for a treat”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

This was always a pleasant place to go, but the new team have made it a wonderful choice for lunch! Service is pleasant and, whilst enough time is given for you to make your choice, you are not left waiting too long. And you are offered a chance to order a drink whileyou make up your mind. My advice would be to go with the specials. The quiche of the day is always good - in fact anything which involves baking is worth trying as the standard of pastry and cake is really high. But there are some exciting taste sensations on offer so that you can try the spicy and hotter options if you wish. Use of local produce is a priority and ensures that ingredients are first rate.
Evenings are starting to be busy as this place becomes more noticed.
This is a place easily accessible for people in wheelchairs, except those whose wheel chair is unusually wide, and parents with buggies, although the door might be a little fiddly to manage alone. There are no stairs and toilets are on the one level too.
As a town bistro I think this takes a lot of beating for value and quality and would recommend it highly for anyone in Framlingham in search of a good quality lunch,, elevenses or tea and a quiet sit down.
The coffee is good too.

“Lovely place, delicious food”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We visited the Lemon Tree for lunch on a sunny Thursday. The menu is limited- soup, sandwiches and a few hot dishes ie fishcakes, sausages and mash etc with a specials board available.

Don't let you put you off as the dishes focus on local producers for meat, cheese etc. My partner has the sausages and mash- pork, apple and apricot with mash and onion gravy whilst I had a sandwich on artisan bread- chorizo, chicken, cheese and a chilli jam. The flavour of this sandwich was immense and well worth the value. Special commendation for the thrice cooked chips. I have seen this on TV and thought a gimmick but boy were they crispy!

The lemon posset off the specials board served with mixed berries and shortbread biscuits was to die for- not too tart, not too sweet. If I had been able to, I would have licked the glass clean!!

Service was friendly and efficient in a pleasant setting with great food. Perfect!

“An excellent discovery”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We needed a meal on our visit to Framlingham. We entered this very spacious and clean restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. We both had an excellent meal beautifully served. We will certainly return when we are in the area.
