The Lime Tree, situated on leafy Lapwing Lane in West Didsbury, has been at the top of the list for Manchester gourmets for years. Why? The outstanding food, the easy atmosphere, the ever-changing menu and the extensive wine list.
Chef-patron Patrick Hannity and his team of extremely dedicated chefs prepare the award-winning food, which started out French and over the years has evolved into cutting-edge Modern British. The menu changes weekly but old favourites are never allowed to go away. Many of the dishes reflect the passing seasons and all ingredients are local wherever possible. The Lime Tree offers top-drawer fine dining without being in the least bit stuffy – there’s an elegant, bohemian feel to the place and in summer you can experience it al fresco on the terrace. Wine is a major part of the Lime Tree experience and this is reflected in both the wide choice and in the wines which are chosen weekly to complement the changing menu.
