I have visited Thyme on several occasions when visiting Sheffield and can honestly say have enjoyed every visit. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food good and the service good too. The head of house makes you feel very special and the service is very good considering the place is so popular. We visited on this occasion on a Tuesday evening... More

A local friend invited my family here for dinner around 6pm on a weekday. Parking was not so easy to find but the food was worth any inconvenience. The cafe was busy and a bit too loud for us to hear each other at the table but we managed. Everyone in my family loved their food, even our 10yr old.... More

We stayed at the Premier Inn in Sheffield, England for a week. We always had the full breakfast at the hotel and it was great. It included cereals, yogurt, sausage, hashbrowns, eggs, tomatoes, beans and more. You could also request eggs made to order. The granola was very good with healthy toppings as well. We also had dinner and dessert... More

I love Thyme Cafe. We went on a Thursday evening and had to wait 40 minutes for a table but we just went for a drink at a local pub. The service was efficient and friendly. I had a fishcake which was delicious and the chips are some of the best I've ever tasted. Delicious Bakewell tart for pudding. Very... More

First time visiting this place after living in Sheffield for 4 years. With that in mind I'd suggest it's one of the city's best kept secrets. The food took a while to arrive but it was worth the wait - the Thai crab cake was to die for, as was the ham hock pie that I managed to get a... More

Locals love this place and as you can't book, go early. If it's a Saturday night 6pm or you can put your name down for a table on arrival and nip to the York (pub) for a while. Mixture of options on the chalk board menu, but for value you can't beat the cheese burger. But lots of fish and... More

Often on a Friday we'll head down to Thyme Cafe because of its intimate setting, great atmosphere and a menu that changes regularly. It is because of these things listed above, that the Thyme Cafe is always busy, and they sadly don't take reservations due to there being only a few covers available. Worth taking the risk! Even if it... More

We have enjoyed many meals at this funky cafe in the past but were saddened by the shoddy food we were served at our last trip here. Beef brisket hash cake, basically some dried up beef stirred into potato and fried, served with more potato. Not good. Crab cake not much better either, tasted like canned crab. Fries were not...

Nice busy atmosphere on Saturday night. Menu doesn't seem to have much variety any more. Vegetarian options for my wife are very limited. She opted for a tomato risotto with goats cheese and pesto. Quite bland, rice slightly undercooked. I had a lamb rump. For £21 I expected a knockout dish...this was far from the case. Lamb was very rare,... More
