Arrived at hotel just after 8.30 and was pleased to find that restaurant was still taking orders. Menu looked amazing and was struggling to decide which option to take. Luckily I didn't get starter as when my roasted duck main came out it was HUGE. Needed some sauce as duck was a little and polenta chips were only ok. Would... More

From the attentitive service, which really made the night...to the beautifully prepared meal we really enjoyed the evening, food options where first class and flavoursome top quality food complemented the wonderful live music and ambience. Most standout was the wonderful attentive mautaradee from Kazakhstan, who made this wrap around service well worth the visit!

We chose Thyme for a catch up with good friends to celebrate the 2 birthdays. We were the only diners and had very attentive and pleasant service throughout. It's a bit hard to gauge a restaurant vibe when the place is empty. There was a reasonable menu and the meals were good.
