Friendly neighbourhood bistro - food is always great

We visit Thyme regularly when we visit family in Sheffield. There's no shortage of eating options in Broomhill but it's become the place we go to now as it's always good. Friendly staff, great food an reasonable prices (for the quality) and an ever changing menu. It always takes a while to decide... read more

I've passed this place so many times without going in but a colleague recently said it was the best restaurant she'd been to in Sheffield so we decided to try it and are very glad we did! Lots of choice, everything seemed home made and very tasty, good sized portions and friendly and helpful waiting staff. Couldn't ask for any... More

We visited on a saturday night and it was busy..40 mins wait but not a problem for us. . Food was great although some food ran out by 8.30ish.. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Hey this place was fine! However, it was expensive for how much food we got. We could not sit inside - cramped, crowded. Sad that we had to go inside to read the blackboard - awkwardly in the way of the servers and people walking around. I had the salmon it was fine! The outside area is really nice for... More

Always excellent, Thyme is the sort of individual, original little restaurant that you dream of stumbling upon when you go to a new city. The menu changes frequently and is written up on big blackboards - really authentic, good quality food - a winner every time

Popped in for Sunday lunch while in the area and didn't regret the decision! I opted for the belly pork with all the trimmings which was delicious! Our waitress was very helpful and friendly, didn't catch her name but I think she was Australian. Great wine recommendation anyway! Looking forward to our next visit.

It's 6.15PM on a mid-week late summer evening. How many other restaurants in Sheffield are completely full and having to give people turning up to request a table a time to come back when a table is expected to be available? This is the most remarkable dining place in the city - the food is rarely less than delicious -... More

For one reason and another, we haven't been to Thyme for a while. Went back again this week for an early supper. The atmosphere is unchanged - buzzy bistro, blackboard menus, friendly staff - and the food was just as good as I remembered. All the old favourites still feature - Thyme cheeseburger and shell-on prawns - with lots of... More

Love this place, they are super friendly, the food is delicious and really affordable, and it's lovely inside. It's probably my favourite place to eat in Sheffield, lunch or dinner.

Excellent food and excellent service. Would recommend this place to anyone! A busy Sunday evening when we popped in but we were served quickly and all staff were really 'on the ball'.
