Thyme Restaurant, Athlone has attained Bord Bia’s Just Ask! Restaurant of the Month award for May. Established five years ago and located right in the centre of Athlone, Thyme Restaurant is one of the town’s most popular eating places. Delicious food at affordable prices is the aim at this cosy little spot and it’s clearly getting it right as its appeal to people of all ages means that weekend tables need to be booked well ahead. The restaurant has been announced as the Just Ask! winner for May because of its dedication to sourcing ingredients locally.
Owner and chef, John Coffey is a member of Euro-toques Ireland, and is committed to the philosophy of quality food sourcing, with an emphasis on seasonal, local, and artisan ingredients. “We are trying to promote the great local produce we have on our doorstep as much as possible and really see the benefits,” comments John Coffey. “We are proud to state that almost everything we serve is from local (or as local as possible ) farmers.”
