Accomodating a light lunch!

We visited Thyme (my partner and I) with the in-laws, for a quick bite to eat on a Saturday lunch time. We had had quite a substantial breakfast, so didn't want anything too large for lunch, and the manager was more than happy to accommodate us, and pointed out several dishes that they'd be willing... read more

We went to the restaurant around 1.30pm. It was packed out! The owner said there'd be a table for us (4) around 2.00pm. No problem, we went for a coffee and returned. And glad we did. The menu choice is extensive. We went for (i) belly pork and scallops x 2; and chicken breast with mozarella etc x 2. All... More

Have tried to get a table at this restaurant a few times now and as it has a no booking policy, you just have to turn up and hope. This time thankfully we got one straight away. The food is simply delicious. So much choice. I could choose so many things off this menu. The free carafes of tap water... More

My fiancé and I went here for dinner on Saturday night. As usual we only had to wait half an hr for a table. The food was great and very friendly service. Never fails to deliver.

I visited on a Monday night and was surprised just how busy it was. By the time I left I wasn’t surprised anymore. There seemed to be a lot of returning customers which given the warm welcome, friendly service, great hearty food and well kept beer I can see why people would keep coming back, as I shall also. I...

We've been here several times and it's never disappointed. The manager is lovely, the food is delicious, the portions are generous and the decor is inviting. We'll be back again soon, I have no doubt.

I've been to Thyme Café before for lunch, but this was my first evening visit. The food was even better than I remembered it, and I was lucky enough to be seated straight away and not have to run to the York to kill some time. I had the Duck Breast, and my partner had the Lamb Kofta's, both of... More

Greeted by warm and friendly staff who put a smile on your face. Excellent variety of authentic and different dishes, including great vegetarian meals. Food was delicious and came quickly. Chilled atmosphere and lovely garden out the back (in the sun). Fantastic customer service. A tad overpriced, but a great experience.

We've been coming here for years and love it. We came back on Thursday evening to make the most of the sunshine and sit in the back. A huge bonus for us is that kids eat free at certain times. With two picky children, the choices are great and the portions very generous. We all love the bread and dips... More
