I visit the Lime Lounge quite often as I live nearby, but this was the 1st time I've been in with someone in a wheelchair. They were so helpful & couldn't have done anymore to find space for us & get us settled at a table & make us feel comfortable. Everyone was so nice & friendly, we had lunch... More

The staff were really accommodating to families with kids and have toys for them to play with, which for visitors with no kids... More

We went here following recommendations from trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. We had the afternoon tea and it was gorgeous, so much that they had to give us a doggy bag to take the rest home. Lovely with the children too

Really nice staff and fab coffee. Didn't stay long, just had a coffee one day and a take away the next, but the vibe is lovely, people seemed happy and local and settling down to chat. And the best flat white in Bakewell.

This place is always great to pop into for a quick coffee stop. Usually fairly busy, it maintains a nice atmosphere and the food and drink are always good.

Myself, my husband and other members of my family visit The Lime Lounge frequently. The staff are very friendly. The coffee and food i.e bacon baguettes are excellent. It is a very relaxing place and not far away for a stroll around Bakewell and along the river. Would highly recommend this as a place to visit.
