It would seem that the word’s well and truly out in Sheffield, as on every occasion I’ve visited Thyme Cafe – usually on a Sunday – the place has been packed to the rafters with happy diners.
It’s always reassuring to see a busy restaurant, particularly in these difficult times – give Thyme the time of day and you’ll understand why.
There are more main courses than you can shake a stick at – varying in price from around £9.00 to just shy of £20 for a ribeye. I’d come over all ‘roasty’ so went for the traditional roast beef dinner. I have to say the only thing traditional about this were the ingredients – I’ve seldom tasted such good beef – and served a perfect pink.
My companions went for Seabass (£17) and Steak & mushroom pie (£13) – all portions were a decent size – but I guess Yorkshire folk must expect that.
A couple of puds, a half carafe of house red and a pint from a large range of beers brought the bill to £71.40.
I understand the menu changes daily and offers whatever’s in season – their website provides a good guide to what's on offer. Don’t worry if you have young ones in your party. They are well catered for in the menu and appear to made very welcome by the very friendly and helpful staff.
A great find and even worth a trip to Sheffield for.
