Very pleasant evening meal of haddock and chips! Lovely onion rings as a side. Most enjoyable and good service too.

Delighted to be back at The Thorn, always lovely to see Becky who looked after us beautifully.
As usual an excellent meal in a lovely environment with friendly staff.
Really great hospitality experience - thank you 😊
Everything well up to standard despite difficult times. Thank you.
Another lovely evening at the thorn. The shellfish bowl was divine and the staff were friendly and attentive. Covid rules were adhered to and I am looking forward to my next visit.
The menu is currently quite limited, however all dishes were presented well. Portion size was just right for us ... we both chose fresh fish (you would need a hearty appetite for the battered haddock main course dish) The homemade chocolates were exquisite.
New menu was great and the steak was amazing. There COVID precautions were first class and we felt very safe and relaxed.
Always love the moules night. Delighted you're open again
Delicious! Well worth a trip
Our visit was relaxed and very enjoyable, the restaurant was well organised with all covid procedures in place. We felt welcomed, safe and well looked after. The food and drinks were lovely and we would highly recommend a visit
The food was exceptional, the staff very attentive and helpful!! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back!
Good you have a vegan menu but friend who had the vegan curry said it was rather dull. Otherwise our food was good.
Very relaxing atmosphere, especially given the circumstances. Wonderful service, thank you!
Great food, no pressure. Social distancing measures well thought out.
First time out since restrictions were lifted and were made to feel really comfortable and loved the food as usual
Given the current circumstances we felt very safe and appreciated the trouble taken to ensure this. The food was it's usual good standard and the staff very vigilant. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.
So good to be back, great food, lovely staff and a great atmosphere. See you all again soon and thank you
I have been visiting the Thorn regularly for the past 5 years and have always loved the ambience and food. Very friendly, great service and a good menu choice
A very expensive breakfast but nothing special
Lovely to be back again. Our first post lockdown meal out 'cause we knew we could trust you to have fantastic food, great service and top hygiene - we weren't disappointed!
