Last minute booking. Delicious, fresh fish, cooked to perfection as always. Slip soles, in particular, were superb. Great service too. Highly recommend the Thorn!

The "Locals' Menu" was dated for the evening we were there, and comprised three choices for each of the three courses. The six different dishes we chose were all very good indeed. It was a fine meal, and very good value.

All four of us had the battered haddock. Three out of the four felt the batter was too over cooked and very greasy, and that the chips were completely the opposite, I.e. floppy and non crispy. I did mention the greasiness to staff member, who apologised. Desserts were lovely.

As ever very good meal and service. Only downside we thought the portions were a bit tight making it slightly pricey. Will still be coming back though to one of our favourite local restaurants.

Our party shared a seafood starter which was good, but the squid was over cooked, the main courses were no better than average!! Very very disappointing and wouldn’t go back!!

Staff were young inexperienced & initial front of house were abrupt, got better as evening progressed. Had been given a totally empty balsamic vinegar bottle ??? My tempora Zucchini starter had over cooked chips mixed in. The finer details needed to be addressed

We had a late sitting with a large party on a Sunday afternoon. Not quite the level of service or food that I’ve had with a smaller group during the week.

Another lovely meal at the Mistley Thorn, and the house wine was superb. Unfortunately on this occasion, the service was a little slow.

Disappointed that they had run out of several items on the menu. We were seated behind the bar so didn't get the optimum atmosphere, apart from this nicely busy. Service very good, but would have liked a cooler for the white wine - had to ask again for ice.
