About The Reservoir Inn

Welcome to the Reservoir Inn

The Reservoir Inn is a warm friendly pub serving delicious food in the charming village of Thornton, on the edge of the National Forest, and just a stone's throw from the circular reservoir walk around the beautiful Thornton Reservoir.

Owners Alan Morgan and Steve Bazeley will always make sure a warm welcome awaits with truly hearty menus for refuelling pre/post reservoir walk, an excellent selection of beverages and a friendly welcoming team.

Went for Saturday lunch with friends and The Reservoir never fails to please. There is always plenty of choice for any appetite and tastes and the wine is excellent ! The staff are always very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We will be back !

Poor seating right outside kitchen door Restaurant smelt damp or greasy Bar floor was sticky Food was very average for price Service was average at best, had to ask repeatedly for desert cutlery to just be given a spoon. Best thing was the kids meal portion size was good.

Arrived on Sunday before the England Game. It was understandably quiet. Very nice food - plenty of it too. Friendly and prompt service. Kids ate Sunday main for free with full paying adults - this made the whole meal / lunch very good value. Managed to get back for the game as well - result!!

Had a very nice meal - lots of empty plates, but did feel the choice on the menu was a bit limited.

Lovely Sunday dinner here. We had mussels to start with they we're awful we did complain & they were taken off the bill. The actual dinner was really nice tho. We've been to their other pub The windmill aswell & I did prefer the Windmill for atmosphere & inside the pub

Staff are very friendly and welcoming, couldn't be better. I even met the chef! Food - the mushroom starter is the best ever, I've never tasted mushrooms so good. Lamb curry was delicious. Only slight niggle was that I prefer green olives, there were only 2 - but don't panic, the black olives were far better than expected and tasted lovely. It was a quiet evening, so there wasn't a huge atmosphere, but that was nice as we had a few important things we needed to discuss. The Spanish lager was perfect too! We'll be back for a curry night soon too...

I don't normally provide negative feedback but my husband and I were very disappointed with our food when we visited. The Yorkshire puds looked like they'd been cremated and the spuds and parsnips were more rock hard than crispy. The lasagne I had was completely bland even with the tonne of salt and pepper I seasoned it with. Not impressed at all.

We came with a party of 20 people having been on a trip to visit Stoneywell Cottage. The Reservoir Inn was extremely accommodating. All the staff were very friendly and helpful particularly considering our staggered and late arrival for lunch and made sure that everyone felt welcome. The food was excellent and served promptly and efficiently. We the members of Holcot WI and friends thank you all.
