We took over Lemana in 2018, re-opening the cafe in late May with a newly re-furbished interior and new menus. Owner Cathryn is joined by a small team headed up by our manager, Lesley, and head barista, Jass.
The name Lemana
was inherited from the previous owners, and derived by them from research on
the area. Lymington itself began as an Anglo-Saxon village. The Jutes founded a settlement called Limentun after
arriving in what is now South West Hampshire from the Isle of Wight in the 6th century. The Old English word ‘tun’ apparently
means a farm or hamlet whilst Limen is thought to be loosely based on a Celtic
word ‘lemana’ meaning elm-tree. In addition, lemana is a ‘she-oak’ (and small Tasmanian town) in
Australia, and you’ll notice we’ve used the Aborigine sign for a meeting place
in our logo.
Opening times: Tues-Sat: 08:30-16:00 and Sundays 10:30-15:00 (Additional days/hours dependent on season)
