​Our Small Plates offer a more varied choice of dishes, less constricted by the limitations of a set two or three course menu, providing you with a taste of Limetree Kitchen’s signature style of cuisine.

This more relaxed approach to eating out stays true to our love for creating exciting and unique food in line with the restaurant’s ‘nose to tail’ ethos.


Here’s your chance to experiment with many new taste experiences in one sitting, perfect for sharing or enjoying on your own, with portions that are small in size but big on flavour! 


Limetree Kitchen’s pledge is to produce exceptional dishes, created from only the very finest quality ingredients with minimal wastage. We take pride in our ‘nose to tail’ philosophy of using every part of the animal, to create unique dishes with the highest welfare standards of the animal in mind. 

We choose to focus on building a united team of individuals who all share the same vision for the delivery of amazing food, which has been ethically produced and locally sourced. A return to traditional, honest principles.  

Our ethos is simple, to guarantee customers the ultimate eating experience in a relaxed and informal setting. 



For us, success cannot be measured simply by the reputation for an unsurpassed standard of cuisine. We recognise that exemplary customer service is the cornerstone to any thriving restaurant.  Dine with us and we guarantee our friendly, courteous, highly attentive but always discreet staff will help to ensure every visit to Limetree Kitchen represents a delightful and memorable dining experience.


Our regularly changing menu is comprised of the ‘Best of Local’ produce. Our philosophy is to retain the natural taste of the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients.

Our emphasis on using only the freshest ingredients, means that our menus are driven by seasonality and we therefore support local suppliers, mainly from Sussex and Kent, who share the same passion for responsible and ethical food production. We treat our neighbouring producers with the respect they deserve and as a result enjoy honest and fair working relationships with them.


It’s not just the food that makes us stand out from the crowd. There’s absolutely nothing ‘average’ about Limetree Kitchen and the conventional gin and tonic. We take pride in our unique ‘Gin Kitchen’ which flies in the face of the traditional.  Choose from a tempting selection of refreshing concoctions or create your own bespoke recipe with our extensive range of gins. You won’t be disappointed by the collection of boutique wines we have on offer either. Or if beer is the tipple of choice, satisfy your thirst with one of our craft beers.
