we live locally and thought we'd visit the restaurant for the first time. Although it was midweek the restaurant was already busy when we arrived (around 7pm) The meal and service was great, we will definitely be returning. The waiting staff were young but there seemed to be someone older present who was overseeing the service (I say older..he was... More

I stayed on a Thursday evening in July £85.00 B&B for single occupancy. The hotel is easy to find with parking right outside. The bed and pillows were soft and beautiful white cotton sheets. An excellent night's sleep. Good size clean bathroom with a raindrops shower. I recommend room 2.

We stayed one night recently and had a great stay. We chose it because it was recommended by Alister Sawday as a great place to stay with dogs. The room was absolutely fine (room6), great view now problem, even with two dogs (1 big, 1 small). But, there were no dog treats or sausages for the dogs for breakfast, so... More

Excellent two night stay with a large group of friends.The Thorn is tastefully decorated with generous sized bedrooms and bathrooms. From the outside the building does not look like it would contain the number of rooms that it does. Whilst our room did not benefit from a view over the estuary it was large and very comfortable. We had a... More

We stayed here for one night and had a fabulous time. The room was of a generous size (2 adults, 1 child and 2 dogs were accommodated easily), the view was great and it was lovely and warm. Fab bathroom as well and everything was sparkling clean. The service was great and we had some excellent food here - both... More

Had a superb evening at the Thorn on Friday 7th March. Warm welcome, very comfortable room, lovely views (we were in room 1). Great beer, excellent food for both dinner & breakfast. Faultless! Looking forward to visiting again soon and sampling yet more that the Thorn has to offer!

Wow - what a fantastic weekend. Back for a third time but this time filling the hotel with 22 people - easy now there are 11 rooms. The hotel itself is fantastic - wonderfully decorated, excellent attention to detail and very classy. The food was fantastic - you expect it would be as it is owned by a chef but... More

We had a meal on quite a busy Sunday evening. All staff were friendly and welcoming...the food was excellent....we both had fish and would totally recommend eating here. We particularly liked how a bottle of tap water came to the table immediately without having to ask or being offered expensive mineral water!

The quality of food is superb and cannot fault it, however, unfortunately poor customer service lets this lovely place down...staff were too few and unhelpful, we had such a long wait for our breakfast. Basic Items were missing or forgotten, we had to ask several times for basics coffee, toast & butter. We suffered this problem when we visited a... More
