When we finally found the restaurant tucked away down a one way street we wasn't all that impressed, a lack of atmosphere and tucked away in a corner when the place was only half full. Food ok but overpriced, probably won't go back

First time visit through recommendation. Met friends for dinner. Food was lovely, staff were friendly but a bit over zealous. Overall a nice evening was had.

The Lemon Tree restaurant, just a few steps from the heart of Bishop���s Stortford is a Hertfordshire favourite. Set in an elegant Grade II listed Georgian terrace, The Lemon Tree is a lively, relaxed eatery, created entirely by executive chef Luke Fishpool and his front of house wife Sue. The dining room makes the most of its historic setting, with beamed walls and ceilings, exposed brick fireplace, wooden floors and uncluttered wood tables and seating. The well thought out modern British menu features the freshest quality ingredients and global influences, and Sunday lunch includes a proper British roast. Interesting, affordable wine list and parking nearby that ticks every box.
