The Real Greek x Tims Dairy Collaboration


We know not everyone will manage to visit Greece this summer, but we also know how to bring Greece to your table!

Here at The Real Greek, we aim to give you a real Greek experience through the flavour of our food and the relaxed, friendly atmosphere of our restaurants.

Talking about flavours, some of our best-selling dishes are our Tzatziki, our Dolmades, Lamb Meatballs and our Yogurt with Walnut spoon-sweets. What do all of these dishes have in common? Tims Dairy yogurt!

For us, choosing the right yogurt for our food was extremely important, as the distinctive texture and flavour of Greek yogurt is unparalleled. It can make all the difference to a Greek recipe. Also, taking into consideration the unquestionable health benefits of Greek yogurt, Tims Dairy was the ideal choice for us.

We have been collaborating with Tims Dairy for the last three years, using their Greek style, bio-live natural yogurt in our dishes and we love it so much, as with its smooth and creamy texture, it works perfectly with our food. It reminds us of Greece in every spoonful!

Tims Dairy is a Greek family run dairy, based in the Chiltern Hills. Their motto is “Greek heritage, British made” and they’ve been making delicious Greek-style yogurt for over 72 years no, using fresh British milk and only natural ingredients.

Bides Timotheou, one of the family who runs the dairy, is a passionate foodie and upon meeting with our own Tonia Buxton to discuss future yoghurt based recipe ideas, said: “The menu uses our yogurt to fantastic effect and in traditional style across dishes”.

The atmosphere is fun, vibrant and romantic, whilst the food and Greek wine evokes Mediterranean skies, seas and scents. Tims Dairy yogurt is so thick, creamy and versatile, it is the perfect ingredient for any Greek meze.”
