We stopped here for lunch while travelling south to the channel ports. this is a tiny (about 20 covers) but quite stylish restaurant serving excellent food and wines at reasonable prices. A variety of breads and olives are served at your table before you order. My wife declared her meal the best vegetarian food she had ever tasted

I stayed here for one night as a solo business traveller. The room was lovely although small (it was described as such). There are characterful sloping floors and steep stairs so not for anyone with limited mobility, but it was ideal for me. Was greeted with a slice of cake and fresh milk to go with my tea tray. Breakfast... More

You don't need to know much other than this is a wonderful restaurant. The menu is extensive for the size of the restaurant and the food was delicious. The drinks choice is also very good. Excellent service and an absolute must if you are in the area.

I stayed for two nights in the guest house. The rooms are beautiful and the shower is very powerful. We were greeted with home-made carrot cake. The meal in Wild Thyme was the high spot of my holiday. The waitresses were very friendly and each course looked like a picture. For my pudding I got apple cooked in pastry and... More

We went to stay for a couple of nights for my husbands birthday. We were made very welcome, shown to our room with freshly baked cake and tea. The room was very comfortable with en-suite, although the floors were very uneven, part of the building being so old. We had to go uphill to the toilet! The bed was very... More

Had heard and seen good reviews so went with two friends This is a very small restaurant - perhaps a bit too small for making private conversation as the table are very close together but not really a problem but is certainly cosy! An excellent meal was served by the very friendly (I think) owner and the menu was quite... More

We visited this restaurant while staying at Oddington in Cotswold. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable for holding conversations, not noisy, bustling. Complimentary house-baked bread (3 types) were served and they were delicious! We ordered 3 sets of the 2 course meal: Grilled scallop & duck breast, cheese soufflé & pork belly, cold crab meat & duck confit. We concluded... More

We spent our bank holiday weekend in Chippy as the locals call it and stopped over at the Wild Thyme. The building is listed, owners very down to earth, accommodating and the food amazing!! Worth a visit and highly recommended. Must try scallops, lobster and the cheeses :)

Have been wanting to come here for several years and finally managed it in the company of five lifelong friends on Tuesday of this week. Superb friendly staff who dealt with a little confusion over booking with excellent professionalism. Goats cheese soufflé with a hint of honey and hazelnuts was as good a starter as I have had for some... More
