Italian amaretto ice cream, almond tart and espresso and Baileys crème brûlée are among the indulgent desserts at About Thyme Pimlico. Light meal choices available at lunchtime and early evenings include stuffed piquillo peppers, sautéed tiger prawns and Serrano ham with bruschetta.

    Really lovely staff and fantastic food. Would strongly recommends to family and friends. All I would say is make sure you sit upstairs, as it is set out much nicer.

    Have been here before but was a while ago. This time for lunch and again hasn’t disappointed. Food fabulous and, as always, friendly staff. Relaxing atmosphere. One of our favourite London restaurants which we will go back to again.

    We chose the two course lunch which was both excellent and good value for money. One of my favourite restaurants in London.

    Brilliant welcome as always. The Head Waiter brings a glass of bubbly to welcome you as you sit down. The food was excellent and the wine superb. The lamb shanks were divine.

    Very warm welcome, friendly and efficient service. I had the seabass baked in a banana leaf, which was divine. Very reasonable.
