thyme to head west...


Established in 2006, Thyme Out has become a firm favourite in the local Didsbury food scene.

Our casual dining venue is known for serving inventive and fresh breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes and we offer a fresh, locally sourced menu in a friendly and cosy atmosphere.

We take food pretty seriously, which is why everything we serve is freshly made to order, be that to eat in, take away, or as part of our extensive catering service.

Along with locally roasted Heart and Graft coffee, there is always an impressive cake selection of homemade cakes to accompany your brew. With a choice of eating inside our cosy eatery or in one of our two outside dining areas, Thyme Out is the ideal venue for meetings, a quick bite over lunch or a long-overdue catch up with friends.

We are also fully licensed, meaning you can enjoy a cheeky glass with your meal (it’s never too early).



Having started off as a fairly small part of what we do here at Thyme Out, outside catering is now an equally important side to our business. As such, we took the decision to launch a separate business – Thyme Outside – from which to operate our catering services for weddings, corporate events, private events and functions.

With the same ethos of quality, fuss-free food, made to order, our catering service has proved a winning formula over the years with Thyme Out regulars and new customers alike. Our dedicated Thyme Outside website focuses entirely on outside catering and features a full range of menus and ideas for every occasion.

Corporate clients are also able to order and pay online, and regular business users of our catering services can benefit from having an online account, which stores all of their preferences and makes placing orders quicker and easier.
