Whilst looking for the ideal location to bring up a young family in 2002 Tara and John O'Callaghan came across No 1, Fore Street in Ilfracombe and realised that it would be the perfect location to bring up their children and to open a restaurant.

Tara and John have worked as a team to build the business up from scratch and focussed on the quality and variety of local produce in the area.  It's John's passion for these ingredients that form the basis of Take Thyme's delicious menu.

Tara's warmth and friendly personality makes her a huge hit front of house and combined with John's skills at cooking, Take Thyme is now a very popular local restaurant.

Take Thyme continues to evolve and Tara and John look to forward to welcoming you into the story!
