We called in early evening, not realising it was Valentine's Day. They squeezed us in and we had a lovely meal. Tuna steak, asparagus and goat's cheese tartlet, chicken balti and lasagne. All very tasty and filling.

We went for an evening meal at Lilburns on a cold and windy night. There was no one in the bar/cafe area downstairs (apparently, this is unusual). We went upstairs where we were greeted and shown to our table in the back corner of the small, pleasant and airy room. We had a starter of very crabb-y Craster crab cakes... More

We booked for lunch and were pleased we did. The receptionist advised that there was a large party booked in and advised that we should arrive a little early and our order would be taken ahead of them. My Craster crab cakes were a delicious starter as were my partners chilli prawns. Main came as duck breast, pink and perfect... More

Came here for a late lunch and were made to feel welcome. Service was friendly yet very professional, food was well presented and tasty. We had one of the specials, belly pork, which was tasty and very filling, also the sausage and mash which looked impressive! All at a reasonable cost.

We dropped in for lunch. I fancied soup but as I can't eat dairy asked and was told 'It contains butter.....but no problem I'll ask the chef." He came out and chatted and cooked me a dairy free broccoli soup from scratch and it was delicious! Thank you Lilburn's it was such a treat.

Huge selection on the menu, and it's licensed. Our lunches came quickly and were tasty. Other food coming out looked good too. It's a bit hidden away this place but worth seeking out.

We eat lunch here fairly often. It can be very crowded especially in the tourist season but worth the wait if you can get a table. The menu is wide-ranging and vegetarians have a choice. The jacket potatoes with cheese are delicious - the cheese actually tastes like cheese! Prices are very fair for the quality of food. Service is... More
