“Fantastic Hake Lunch”
Review of Meet & Thyme

Ranked #1 of 21 Restaurants in Hillsborough
Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 March 2017

This was the first time we tried this restaurant. We both had hake for lunch. The food was top class - the fish was cooked to perfection and the sides complemented perfectly. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and the service was excellent.
We can't wait to go back.

Our first visit at this restaurant for Sunday lunch. Service was friendly and attentive and food was high quality. We thought it was good value with three courses for £22. Would definitely go back.

Came here for a colleagues retirement. There were 40 of us and we had the restaurant exclusively to ourselves. Food delicious and service excellent. Perfect venue for a private gathering such as this. Peter the manager was extremely helpful with arrangements beforehand.

Ate here with a friend who kindly invited us out. The place was empty apart from our little party, and to our surprise and delight the waitress offered a starter with their compliments. The starter was very tasty, as were the entrees and desserts, so a very pleasant time was had. Our host went to pay, and asked the waitress to add a good tip to the bill. Only when she got home did she realise that a further tip was automatically added to all bills anyway, so had tipped twice. Isn't automatic tipping a plague? It's either a stealth tax, a covert increase in menu prices....or a way of getting customers to contribute to waiters' wages over and above owners' profit margins. A gratuity isn't gratuitous when you don't have the option to pay it in recognition of good service...it's like being mugged by charity collectors on the street!

We went on chance, and found that it was very quiet.
There is apparently a new chef, and they must keep him. Simply this was one of the best meals my wife and I have eaten in a long time. The scallops were amazing. The steak wonderful. The vegetables beautifully cooked and tasty.
It is bring your own, although in midweek maybe the sobriety just enhanced the meal. I have booked for my next meal.
