Visited Thyme on a rainy Sunday afternoon at about 3pm and was so disappointed - disappointed that our son is in his final year here so wont be able to visit many times again!!. I just love small cosy places like this - a warm and friendly welcome, pleasant interior and a real buzz about the place. Despite the hour... More

Delicious food made from high quality ingredients and excellent service. You can't book but can put your name down for a table if it's busy. At a weekend I would suggest arriving at 7, so if it's busy you can get your name down and not have too long to wait. A nice place to go for a drink whilst... More

Good menu selection and the food is wonderful. Lots of parents with student children visit, especially at weekends - so if the kids are taking the parents there it must be good Look out for the pies and all the traditional stuff

When ringing up to book, we were told that reservations aren't normally taken, but it was a special occasion so they'd make an exception, which was excellent. When we arrived the restaurant was busy, but true to their word there was a table for us all. After browsing the menu boards, we ordered. Firstly, a drink was missed off, which... More

We've been coming to Thyme for years and were back again on Sunday evening. It's one of our favourite places to eat and it's currently on good form. Yes, it's always busy, yes, you can't book and yes the seats are too close together but the food is nearly always excellent and the changing blackboard menu means there's usually something... More

Disappointing visit to thyme cafe. We have had many lovely meals here before but.... Many choices had sold out ( although the staff were eating them well after being taken off the board) The staff were unable to explain what an iron steak was The chips were burnt The sticky toffee pudding was cold The wine is seriously overpriced!

Visited Thyme Cafe for Sunday Lunch , could not believe the varied menu on chalk boards on the walls. The food was absolutely delicious, desserts to die for, not cheap but well worth the money, friendly atmosphere, amazing for a small cafe. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
