Have eaten here only twice so far, but our New Year resolution is to visit more often. Food is amazing, no better way to describe it. Staff are great and nothing is too much bother. If you haven't already been here, it is a must! Happy New Year to all at Thyme, we will return.

Chips weren't cooked, asked for my tea particularly to come at the same time as my meal. Over priced

I always looking forward to eating here and impressed by the friendliness and quality of the food. Orders are usually very quick. I just wish the place was bigger as during busy periods you need to wait for a seat!

Can't understand why they advertise a 2 course special then charge you the full prices for both courses. It was only a couple of quid extra but I wouldn't have ordered dessert if I'd known I was gonna pay a fiver for it as it was tiny. Also came out on a roof slate??? C'mon, a normal plate will do,...
