Thyme Out, Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria – a Greek coffee shop the Greeks would be proud of.

We arrived in the North of England and took a detour to Grange-over-Sands. It’s located on the North side of Morecambe Bay, in the South Lakes area of Cumbria.

In the late 18th century the area attracted wealthy industrialists to build large properties. Today it is home to just four thousand residents.

It’s a small town with a short high street, guest houses and hotels. There isn’t a great deal here to be honest, but it can claim to own the views across Morecambe Bay and oriental gardens or as the locals called it, the duck pond!

You can see the expansive sands with Morcambe Bay in the distance.

We stopped for a quick bite at Thyme Out, where they served Greek food.

The staff here were friendly and unlike so many places I’ve visited, the staff actually wore the masks as they were intended to be worn during this never-ending pandemic.

The interior was delightfully appointed, clean and welcoming.

My wife chose the falafel, humous, pita and fries and I had the hollumi wrap and fries.

It’s a great pit stop to refuel if you’re visiting Grange-over-Sands and no need to book.
