The Lime Tree Restaurant is an award winning family run business originally established in 1987 in Didsbury, Manchester by chef owner Patrick Hannity. In 2012 Patrick opened The Lime Tree Restaurant and Wine Bar in Bollington, Cheshire.

A dedicated and established team of chefs in both restaurants produce a regularly changing menu which focuses on quality, seasonal and local produce much of which come from our own farm at Macclesfield Forest. Patrick is joined in the kitchen by a long established team of chefs, Jason, Gary, Ric and his son, Sam, previously of Michelin Star Galvin’s, La Chapelle, London, and The Boundary, London.

Our Front of House style is unfussy, efficient and friendly. We offer an outside catering service to suit your event or venue.

We also have our own in house baker who bakes fresh bread and pasta.

In 2008 Patrick purchased Hardingland Farm at Macclesfield Forest, with the purpose of rearing and finishing his own rare breed pork, lamb and other seasonal produce for a specialist menu in both restaurants. You can follow the link to our farm here http://www.hardinglandfarm.com/index.htm

In March 2015 we were awarded Best Restaurant in the Fine Dining Category South Manchester of The Eat Drink Sleep Awards.
