My wife and I have stayed at the Thorn each year for the last four years. We have always been very well looked after and the food is excellent!

Excellent Friendly service and environment. Well cooked fresh food although the chips were soggy and stuck together in the pot. Unimaginative salad with the plaice.

Staff were very attentive and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Changing us to a table seat, as we had a guest who wanted to appreciate the river view. Food the usual high standard. My trout was delicious.

As a regular, I was hoping for a table where people weren't constantly walking past our table, it rather dulled the eating experience.

Twice in two days.... says most of it. The main plus is the quality of the ingredients. Wonderful food for all, including Sunday roasts and fish and steak and... Service today exemplary. Yesterday, under servere pressure, one main course late two orders forgotten - never mind, never on a Father's Day Sunday, when you can enjoy excellence (especially fish) on every other day. Thank you. Michael (and Oscar)

Food is always great and so is the service. The only one bad meal I’ve ever had in the Mistley Thorne was for mother’s day but other than that it’s a great place to eat

Lovely food and good service. The room was a little bright first thing in the morning as it was a sunny day, could do with some darker blinds or curtains, but only a minor issue as it was a lovely room. Overall experience was great. Would definitely return.
