First hiccup at one of our favourite restaurants

Thyme Cafe is usually a brilliant place for great food in an informal setting. Very child friendly and unstuffy. But a recent visit produced our first disappointment. They've recently introduced a good value special lunch menu (the main menu is on blackboards) and I chose the fish and chips for... read more

I've been here dozens of times over the years and usually enjoy the food and appreciate the friendly and personal service. Something's changed though and it's not good. My last two visits have been very disappointing and I don't think I'll be going back. Lacklustre service and very average food mean that this place no longer appeals to me. I... More

I have been visiting Thyme Cafe for at least 6 years and always thought the title cafe did not do it justice. Previously for has been excellent and yet have been disappointed on the last 2 occasions. Visited on Saturday and had the salmon, I agree with the previous comment that the red cabbage was the best item on the... More

Very friendly and efficient service. Lovely relaxed eatery with a great buzz. Sadly for me the food didn't live up to expectations. Soft shell crab was over cooked and sweet potato wedges were verysoggy (Asian slaw in peanut dressing was the best thing on my plate). Nice to be automatically brought a carafe of tap water. Based on other reviews... More

Service was prompt, staff were pleasant, wine was good and so was the atmosphere. Pleasant Saturday afternoon meal. Will return.

We have been eating at Thyme for the last 8 years and have always enjoyed it. We have taken many guests and family over the years and its never failed to deliver until the last couple of times we have been. We ordered the Mussels and found a lot were not open and some of them were a bit slimy... More

What a find! Wholesome, tasty delights. One of the best meals I've had in a long time, even the wine menu has some hidden gems on it and all at a very reasonable price. Fantastic service, we were served by a girl who was on her second night, she had been away in Oz and this was her new job....she... More

Had heard of this restaurant from years back and it was all good stuff so expecting good things today when four of us went. I arrived early so ordered a coffee; it was surprisingly weak and insipid. I get better coffee from my Nespresso. For mains I ordered soft shell crab deep fried. It was overdone and over battered and... More

Expecting great things, but truly disappointed on a cold day. We ordered potato and leek soup for lunch. It was a totally lacking flavour and depth, it actually matched the jug of water served with it. After reading recent reviews it's obvious they have to up their game. A soup is not really testing someone's ability. But today it was... More
