Visited garden centre and café on holiday in 2014, really looked forward to a repeat visit in June 2016, only to find that the café appeared to have suffered a fire, and the whole place (garden centre and all) had closed down. Really disappointed, as the whole place had really been first class.

We were found tables but there was no cover although it wasn't raining so it didn't matter. The food is all freshly prepared do was a little while coming but t was... More

The kerb appeal is appalling; however, it's not the old shack seen from the road but a new modern large Tea/Coffee Shop/Café with the entrance situated around the back of the car park. We visited due to the great reviews on TA. This new café only opened in June 2015 so everything is new, including the nice toilets! The coffee... More

I visited "The Wild Thyme Cafe" whilst on holiday in the Lake District with parents. Went out to Sunday lunch with parents and friends. I was really impressed with the quality of the food, and the friendliness and helpful nature of the staff. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Called here twice during our weekend escape to Bassenthwaite - the first time more in hope than expectation of finding somewhere relatively close to our hotel that looked ok and was open!! The second time because we knew how excellent it was. Perfect Americano with very generously filled sandwiches on our first visit. More of that coffee and a deliciously... More

My first visit to the new Wild Thyme cafe and what a delicious surprise! I chose one of their specials, Salmon and Prawn salad (see photo) and it tasted even better than it looks. All this was followed by a large slice of homemade Lemon Meringue pie and a pot of beautiful Ceylon Broken Orange Pekoe loose leaf tea.....at a... More

Now they have moved the cafe into new premises (and new name!) on site, it as improved the environment no end. Together with their new chef, there are now some lovely lunchtime meals available in a great setting. Still have all the super home made cakes, and now home made scones. The other thing that makes this place for me... More

It was so nice to sit inside with our dog on a cold, windy day. The service here is very friendly and we had a very enjoyable lunch. The tomato quiche was delicious with a lovely fresh salad and jacket potato. My husband thought his Brie and bacon toastie was very tasty. We hadn't planned to have dessert but couldn't... More
