“About Thyme is wonderful.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Its rare that I hang out in a restaurant after a meal, but last night together with 3 friends we closed the place, each of us having enjoyed great starters, and a superb meal, (my red Snapper was heavenly), excellent service and good wine. Very impressed all round and had a wonderful evening as a result. To be repeated.

“A tasty gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a restaurant I have been wanting to try out for several years after my cousin gave it her seal of approval. I have now been twice and realise what I have been missing.
The food is a delicous blend of tastes from all over Europe with an underlying Italian theme. There is a freshness to the recipes that makes you feel you are taking part in a delightful experiment despite the fact that much of the menu is made up of firm favourites.
