Review – Limeyard California Kitchen

Limeyard is a small but growing chain of restaurants with an outlet near us in Staines. We’ve been a few times and always enjoyed it there as it’s a great combination of traditional American-inspired favourites with some twists, at a fairly reasonable price.

On our last visit, we went for Sunday brunch for Mother’s Day. There were eight of us, including Jack (our 4 year old). The staff are very friendly and efficient, the restaurant is well looked after even if it does get very busy on occasion.

We had a real variety of food, including a couple of their ‘Full Yard’ breakfasts, a couple of spicy ”Baja Burgers’, their signature Yard of Tacos and Jack had fishy fingers, mash and peas.

The food took a little while but they were busy. The drinks service was very efficient and actually the activity pack Jack was given kept us all entertained so we didn’t notice the wait!

The food all arrived together and was hot. Portions are a decent size and there are a plethora of sauces and dips to accompany. Everyone was very happy with their meal selection and the quality was great.

Jack’s dish was plenty for a child with very high quality whole-muscle fish fingers which the grown ups polished off as they were so good. He enjoyed the mash and peas too. The kids menu is excellent, £6.50 for two courses and a drink, with lots of choice.


The brunch menu combines a range of breakfasty egg meals together with a selection of their core menu, which includes a range of burgers, steaks, fish, ribs and typical ‘Californian kitchen’ fare.

Eight of us had a lovely meal with a round of drinks and service, the bill worked out to be £12.50 each. Admittedly, the two mums on our table got free Prosecco so we may have spent more on drinks on another day but everyone went away happy.

They have a loyalty card too, which gives occasional offers and money off.
