I have been going to Olive & Thyme for a few years now. There is a lot of option for vegetarian and the service is brilliant. Definitely recommend. Only thing that could improve is the variety of desserts.

Stopped for an impromptu lunch, lovely attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere, spacious (meaning a good distance between each table) and good decor. Chose from the lunch menu which was great value, Food presentation was excellent and tasted great. Would recommend for both lunch and dinner.
