Thyme to sit by the River and relax…
Totally refurbished and under new management. Wonderful Coffee & Teas, Delicious Cakes and freshly prepared food.
If you are a regular visitor to Molesey and often go for a walk along the river you will already know about a little gem called Thyme by the River. The café was only set up in early November 2013 but has already proved an invaluable spot for walkers, dog-walkers and cyclists alike. The café which is situated in the East Molesey cricket club and sits right next to the river is a haven for dog walkers and for those in need of light refreshment.
The cafe has three seating areas; the first you notice as you walk by Thyme by the River is the river deck area which runs alongside this picturesque part of the river Thames. This is the perfect spot to bring your dog whilst you enjoy a cup of tea or coffee or perhaps something from their food menu.
The next seating area is the café deck, this is the perfect spot to hide from the rain but still be sat out in the fresh air. In the winter they provide a little protection from the cold in here but in the summer they plan to open up the area, there will even be planters growing up the sides of the café. The final seating area which looks out on the cricket grounds is the tea room, this is perfect if you are not one to sit out in the elements.
Everything at Thyme by the River is cooked and prepared fresh to order, they do a lot of the baking themselves, even some of the bread and definitely all the cakes. What they don’t make themselves they source locally. The café is currently open seven days a week from 9.30am till 4pm at weekends (15:30 week days) in the winter and in the summer the café will be open from 9am until 7pm.
Thyme by the River- which got its name from the owner of the cafes love for horticulture has a thyme plant on each table which shows the attention to detail of the café. This really is a place which gives the community a little more.
