Enjoyed a lovely lunch here with friends. Great place to eat, drink and relax. Lovely selection of local produce to buy and small section selling baking and home essentials. Highly recommended and will certainly be back soon!

I'm really saddened and shocked to read this. I would not expect our drinks to take so long to be delivered and apologise if that was the case. I am a little confused as to why you would say they were overpriced or pretentious. Our latte is £2.15 for a large or a small americano is £1.75, both are cheaper... More

Went for breakfast this morning, I got the full English and my boyfriend got the large full English. We were welcomed warmly. We weren't offered either white or brown toast so we just got given white and they also asked us if it's ok if they used up the crusts on us so we agreed, but thought it was a... More

My partner and I went to Thyme Deli on 21st January 2017, for afternoon tea. The staff was friendly and gave a great service. It had a family friendly atmosphere. It had a good variety of cakes, and deli foods. We had a lovely afternoon and would go back.

My platter included an excellent pate, succulent sliced turkey breast, nice crisply jacketed pork pie and some cheddar - along with a well dressed salad and assorted delicacies. All accompanied by a generous serving of crusty bread and butter. Many elements were delicious and the portions were generous (despite having missed breakfast and then played tennis for 2 3/4 hours... More

I love the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere here and the food really is good. All fresh ingredients and served attractively by attentive staff. The deli has a good range of interesting cheeses, pies etc and it all tastes as good as it looks. This is a wonderful place for a wander and browse too, with unusual foods and baking items for...

Lovely place in Horwich, the staff are all wonderful and friendly, always feel cosy and relaxed when im in there, really nice locally sourced, homemade food! Breakfast at Thyme is my favourite! (The scrambled eggs are delish!) Great range of teas as well which i am a big fan of, cant recommend enough!

Have visited this place off and on over a number of years, usually just for breakfast or a coffee. When it first opened it was quite different to the other coffee shops in Horwich. However now it just looks dated and dirty and is in desperate need of redecoration! There are now better coffee shops nearby that look fresher and... More

I liked this place when it first opened, but the trouble is, it's not moved on since. It needs a good revamp to brighten the place up and make it fresh and appealing once more.
