The Lemon Tree Description

Tucked away down a small side street in Covent Garden, The Lemon Tree seems a little confused as to what type of pub it is. The lemon yellow frontage gives way to a traditional interior that hasn't been decorated for a few years (since the late 80's?). These first impressions hide the rather surprising hidden secret - very good, cheap Thai food! With most dishes being around the £5 - £7 mark you can barely get a McDonalds for less. And trust us, The Lemon Tree does a much better happy meal. Although the menu is by no means exhaustive, the selection is very suitable for a quick lunch time break. Arrive early or phone ahead and book a table as this small restaurant area is regularly full.
