Thyme turns 13

This week Thyme will become a teenager. I can't believe it has been 13 years since i first opened my doors.
We are lucky to have such fantastic customers and look forward to the next 13 years!

Here are 13 things you may not know about Thyme……

1.   All the products you see on our menu can be bought in our deli - we love fantastic quality produce and this is a great way to try before you buy.

2.   The Thyme team make all our  soups, salads, quiche, frittata, carrot cake, brownies, flapjacks and much more.

3.    We have an outside seating area (at the back) - well it's a yarden, and a proper sun trap too.

4.     Our hot chocolates are made with Montezumas organic 64% chocolate - they take time to make but they are worth it.

5.     The BBC have filmed a live breakfast show from here.

6.    Some of our deli products have come & gone but others have been here since the beginning - including Cartmel sticky toffee puds, local cheeses, Olives et al products, Patchwork pate & Tracklements chutneys.

7.   We have lots of lovely local honey in stock, year round.

8.    We don't just sell food, we also sell cookware and gifts, including handmade cards.

9.    The building used to be part of a hotel  - Thyme was the bar!

10.   Our breakfasts can cure a hangover (allegedly)

11.   We make up gift hampers all year round not just for Christmas.

12.    We have board games for you to while away the afternoon…or just keep the kids occupied.

13.    Yes we can do decaff, soy, skinny, gluten free, vegan.


Thanks for visiting and we hope to see you soon, Amanda & the Thyme Team

Spring/Summer menu additions

Eventually the weather will get warmer and we are ready - with a couple of new additions to our menu.

Try a falafel, houmous & chilli jam wrap, or a chicken caesar wrap - both are also available as a salad for a lighter option.
When the sun comes out you can enjoy your lunch in our 'garden'. Hidden away at the back it's a real sun trap.



We're also stocking the tartlets from Tom's pies (don't worry the pies are still available). There are 3 flavours to choose from - red onion & gruyere, butternut squash & blue cheese, or ham and sun blush tomato. We will be selling these in the cafe served with our homemade potato salad, and coleslaw, or pick up some to take home 


We are now stocking the new flavour from Fentimann's - lime and jasmine, watch out for new San Pelligrino flavours soon too


We have lots of lovely local honey in stock - all ready for the hay fever season.

Hope to see you soon.
