The Limetree Restaurant

The Limetree has been one of the top restaurants in South West Scotland for more than a decade, but it’s not ‘fine dining’ in the traditional sense. There is, however, consistent emphasis on the best quality ingredients, many sourced from the Moffat area and seasonal cooking. The Chef, Matt Seddon sums it up well:


“I cook what I like to eat – real food – big taste and flavour, no fuss.”


Matt cooks alone in the kitchen and, as such, has full control over the food he produces on our short but frequently changing menu. If you  have any dietary requirements or food allergies, please let us know when you book.

The Limetree Restaurant will be closed until at least 18th May 2021



  • No more than 4 people from up to 2 households are permitted at each table. 

  • The restaurant will close at 10:30pm.  

  • We will ask you for contact details and an email address when you book.

  • We ask please, that you arrive promptly to help us respect other guest’s personal space.  

  • There are a maximum of 6 tables each evening split across 2 rooms.

  • Please make a booking by telephone – it’s so much easier to have a conversation in person.

  • We are happy to accommodate special dietary requirements. Please feel free to discuss any queries you have over the phone.
