An excellent meal, and service spot on. We were eating on a quiet Monday evening so it lacked a little atmosphere but enjoyed ourselves even so.

We booked dinner here for my birthday in view of all the positive reviews, and have eaten at sister establishment Lucca. We were shown to our table on arrival, given a bottle of tap water and menus – which were not relevant to the night we were there, (we only realised this after overhearing a discussion at the neighbouring table). The waitress came to take our order but had not asked if we would like to order drinks. My husband ordered the cooked oysters but only two out of three shells contained an oyster for which we were reimbursed. I ordered calamari which was so chewy I was unable to eat it. At no point did the waitress come and ask if the meal was ok which these days is usual practice and would have given me the opportunity to mention the calamari. We left feeling disappointed as the food looks amazing and my husband enjoyed his meal. The Thorn is obviously very popular and had a lively atmosphere; I can only think that we were very unlucky.
