We visited Sunday night. They close at 8.00. Once again a very good choice of meals. They do not believe in portion control. The Seared tuna and ham hock were delicious. There was also salmon and beef on the menu. We couldn't manage a dessert,

Came here with some friends on a Friday evening. The service was great and the good even better. Me and my friend shared a large super salad, chips and arancini and it was so good and so filling- huge portions! We had this along with wine and it only came to £11 each. It's always really busy when I've tried... More

Great food, really really good service and always a buzzing atmosphere. In 10 years my missus and I have yet to find a restaurant in Sheffield we love more.

Totally recommended!! We went on a Sunday night so get there by 7.45 as they close earlier this night. The service is great and the food is amazing. We had the ham hock which we had to take a photo of. So good! Also had the venison steak and the moules. Steak was fab. The mussels were the biggest any... More

Can here for a work dinner. The menu has so many options it is hard to choose. The do have 2 and 3 course specials. I had the cannelloni with salad. My husband had the venison and mushroom risotto. We both thought our dishes could have had small mushroom pieces but overall enjoyed our meals.

The food and service are always brilliant. From the start you get a friendly welcome and the choice on the menu is great. The quality of the food is always good and you can always guarantee a nice meal! One of our favourite places to eat!

The welcome and service at Thyme was friendly and I cannot fault this aspect of the evening. Unfortunately I found underwhelming. I had a steak which was one of the worst quality that I have ever encountered (I wish I had taken head off previous reviews which have mentioned this.) Some other dishes were slightly better - my brother had... More

Hi Helen. Thanks for the feedback. As we cook everything from fresh (as opposed to from the freezer) it's much more likely that things will run out so a blackboard works well allowing dishes to be removed quickly. It's disappointing to hear about your food though. I hope you spoke to that staff as we're always more than happy to... More

Friday night with their excellent meal deal running (three courses for £16) and it was busy and buzzy which was nice (if you like that sort of thing and aren't after an intimate date night). I had a really good salad starter, whilst my companions had mushroom arancini. They said that their arancini were a bit dry - no perceptible... More

Thanks for the feedback but sorry to hear that your meal didn't meet your expectations. Yes, some nights we've very busy but our patrons generally seem to enjoy this energetic buzz. Please feel free to speak to the staff whilst you are there as we're always happy to replace anything you're not entirely happy with. I'll pass on your feedback... More

Visited with a vegetarian friend and was impressed with the choices on the boards (no menus) for veggies and carnivores in the group. This is a friendly, canteen-style interior, although some of the tables were close together, other diners were not intrusively close. The staff were friendly, service was reasonably swift and the wine list was a good selection too.

Thank CazzaHayes
