Thyme Restaurant, Athlone has made it into the Guide for ‘Great-value Irish restaurants: 13 places to go for dinner’. Corinna Hardgrave and Joanne Cronin have searched Ireland for the most exciting places to eat fabulous food at terrific prices and you will find them in their ‘100 great-value restaurants, cafes and places to eat in Ireland 2022’
According to Corinna Hardgrave this list is all about value – “something we always seek out but is now more relevant than ever. So what you’ll find here are the smaller operators, many of them casual, where you’re as likely to be tucking into a bowl of steaming noodles as a few small plates in a wine bar, plus a handful of higher-end places where you’ll find real value on lunch or dinner menus.”
They have created 8 guides in their research and in the ’13 places to go for dinner’, Thyme Restaurant, Athlone is included. On the quality of their food “everything on John Coffey’s incredibly affordable menu is underpinned by quality”. Situated in the heart of Athlone, Thyme is the brainchild of accomplished chef, John Coffey and his wife Tara, who opened their doors in 2007, focusing on local produce and serving affordable, delicious food.
