"Really nice space for a lunch reunion"
"This was probably the most successful and certainly the best value meal we've had at Limewood. The special offer HH&Co Experience, an informal variation on a tasting menu with sharing plates but retaining some theatrical flourishes, covered a range of rustic-style Italian dishes and served up some reminders of what you can experience in Italy, and with Luke Holder in the kitchen we were not disappointed with the quality of the cooking. As before, apart from the youthful sommelier who really knew his stuff and was confident enough to engage in vinous conversation with the diners, the staff were young and enthusiastic but slightly careless and hampered by the size of the table which was clearly designed not to accommodate a series of sharing plates as well as the place settings. We began with a sparkling fruit liqueur cocktail, which set the palate up for the starter of artichoke hearts with crushed duck egg and truffles with dandelion leaves adding a touch of bitter contrast. The rich risotto that followed throbbed with delicious tomato and anchovy lifted by a judicious dose of truffle and garlic, and the baked bream main course was served with a deal of show in large dishes topped with a bread crust which the waiter cut into and removed to reveal two large, completely deboned fish in a colourful sauce of mixed vegetables. The fish was perfect in all respects but slightly let down by the relatively chewy crust which had quickly cooled on being parted from the rest. A grapefruit granita did the job of cleansing palates excellently and acted as suitable prelude to the picturesque dessert of fresh strawberries, strawberry blancmange and an exemplary set strawberry jelly. The sun shone throughout to further enhance the New Forest majesty of the Limewood estate and the mood of the customers, and despite the minor lapses we came away very satisfied."
"We don't go here for the food but it's perfect for a pre theatre meal as the atmosphere is buzzy. The bar is fun if a bit basic but that's it's charm. The meal deal is worth having though it's a bit hit and miss."
"Explore the by-ways of Italian cuisine here. This is great Italian food with a twist. Our guest, who is a serious cook and loves Italian cooking was impressed. Pasta here must set the gold standard. Lunchtime was a bit quiet and we hope a dinner visit soon will be buzzer. A huge wine list that could take the whole meal to read through."
"At last we made it here. Why it's a restaurant we haven't visited before I don't know. It's smashing and like going back in time with its delightful old fashioned interior. Service was comfy and attentive. It reminded me a bit of The Gay Hussar way back in the 80s with huge portions of mid European recipes. Great! Must go again with a hearty appetite."
"Slow unhelpful service. Unimaginative menu, no healthy options."
"Lots of tourists enjoying the buns and cakes, but worth remembering for a light meal and in particular a very good breakfast."
"You do take pot luck not only on the menu (which depends upon what is fresh on the farm) but also on your companions sharing your table. Just hope that they aren't too greedy when it comes to sharing out the vegetables - and (to some extent) it is the very fresh and local veg that make the Field Kitchen special. A walk around the farm in Devon drizzle is just what you need to round off your visit."
"A high-end Japanese restaurant, just off Piccadilly. The decor is minimalist and wooden, clean lines and traditional. The restaurant was full of Japanese people, a clear sign the food should be good. The ambience is quite formal, this is a place perfect for business lunches but maybe not a romantic meal for two. The food was very good, if a little pricey. We had the shabushabu, a sharing dish where you are supplied with the ingredients and good the food yourself in a boiling pot of water on the table, very good fun if slightly messy. The service was great, very discrete yet efficient."
"his place is unique with its dishes made of finely cooked Indian dishes made with wonderful and full flavours. This is the best place to go to try as many dishes as possible without dropping a fortune."

Twizoo’s Techies Explain…
You’ve probably noticed on Twitter on the left hand side of your ‘Home’ page there’s a ‘Trends’ list. Twizoo has built the same thing, but solely for London restaurants. Our number crunching detects the rate of change of influential mentions on Twitter. For example, ‘Christmas’ is currently trending on Twitter, which means there’s been a spike of mentioning Christmas now compared with the rest of the year.
Applying this to Twizoo’s algorithms: if X restaurant usually gets on average 10 tweets per week, but this week it gets 32 tweets… that’s a pretty big change, so it’s a good indicator something notable is going on. The algorithm notes restaurants that have the highest rate of change and ranks them based on which places’ tweets are the most positive collectively and then it takes the top of those based on how influential the individuals are who tweeted. Simple see?
