The Limetree has been one of the top restaurants in South West Scotland for more than a decade. There is consistent emphasis on the best quality ingredients, many sourced from the Moffat area and seasonal cooking.Chef Matt Seddon sums it up well: "I cook what I like to eat - real food - big taste, real flavour, no fuss."
