Trendy spot! Lyle's channels an industrial, but light feel with beautiful dishes and great service. I came here with five friends a couple weeks back for lunch and had a great time. We decided to share all the dishes on the menu. Given how small the portions were, I had a bite or two of each thing.

The menu changes every day, but it's all good. First, they bring out baskets of hearty...Read More

Awesome. Proper fine dining done very well. Cheeky 4 course taster menu, which I'm led to believe is the only option.

Started with some snacks - breaded lambs shoulder with smoked Mayo and a beetroot dish. I've clearly done a complete u-turn on beetroot as every time I have it at a restaurant it's awesome. With some sort of bacon i think, and a delicious light sauce. Lamb shoulder was...Read More
