4 of us had dinner at the Thorn and none of us could fault it in any way, everything was excellent.
Always an amazingly experience dining at the Thorn lunchtime or evening.
Wonderful stay - lovely room, great food and pleasant staff
My husband and I really enjoyed our visit. Lovely place, great food, very friendly and welcoming staff. If ever we're down that way again, we'd certainly go back
First time visiting, Service was great, food was amazing.
We had a lovely birthday lunch at The Mistley Thorn. Great menu with good choice and loads of fish dishes on the specials list. Nice service, no waiting. Shame we live too far away to visit more often.
Enjoyable meal on a quiet Monday in January. Efficient and friendly service. Food was good and nicely presented.
Lovely meal, very helpful staff who immediately changed our table, on request. So nice to go somewhere where there is no music blaring out. One comment, there is a limited selection for vegetarians and it seems to be the same each time we visit.
Food was exceptional and good to see fresh menu....
Lovely meal thanks
Cosy and friendly with innovative menu. Plenty of drink options.
Brilliant staff that can’t do enough for you
Unfortunately my mum wasn’t happy with her food on Boxing Day however everyone else enjoyed their meals
Food and service was spot on. A little quiet for a Christmas Eve, but made for a calm and relaxing evening. Would definitely recommend and will be back.
Gorgeous meal for our Christmas outing. The staff went above and beyond to cater for allergies and the food was absolutely lovely as always.
The three of us enjoyed an excellent lunch. Highly recommended
wonderfull meal for my wifes birthday. thankyou.
The best restaurant in the local area.
Lovely food as usual. Good quality ingredients and some great flavour combinations. All of us enjoyed all 3 courses and there were empty plates all round. The Mistley Thorn never disappoints.
Enjoyed our visit. Lovely atmosphere; pleasant, attentive staff.
Really nice cooking. interesting and slightly unusual flavours on otherwise classic dishes. Fish/seafood especially nice
Excellent Sunday lunch for the family including a great children’s menu and drawings Kit to keep them amused...excellent value too
Thanksgiving menu was very interesting and the food and service excellent
All staff were really professional and helpful. Excellent service and food would definitely go back
