“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

What a warm & genuine welcome something you rarely find in national hotel chains.I stay away on business twice a week and would not hesitate to book this superb hotel/Bistro again. The hotel owners know the true meaning of hospitality. Give them a try.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

visited this nice little bistro as we were wandering through Limekilns. Almost everything else seemed to be closed . We did expect Limekilns to be "open " to tourists on a public holiday but it was very quiet. So, it was refreshing to see the Bistro open and we received an instant warm welcome. We only wanted coffee and carrot cake. The cake portions were generous and the cake was delicious. Prices were also very reasonable at about £7.00 for our coffees and cake. I would definitely return as this little village has a lot to offer so having a nice place for refreshments ticks the right boxes.

“bland and boring”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

bland and boring for both food and atmosphere. Staff uninterested. Smells strange, decor and furniture tired.

“A pleasant experience”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

Special lunch menu is affordable and always of good quality. Friendly and inviting service in comfortable surroundings is never in short supply from young proprietrix who ensures that you have an enjoyable dining experience. A good place for regular custom.
