Just returned from having Sunday lunch with some friends at The Throckmorton and have to say that it was a superb meal and excellent value - hence the 5 star review. We all enjoyed different main courses and commented to each other on how good the meals were, which shows that the chef (or chefs) talents are broader than a... More

Was taken to the Throckmorton for a surprise 50th birthday weekend. Chocolates, flowers and drink tastefully arranged in the room on arrival. The room itself was clean, comfortable, and tastefully made up. Although there was a power cut the next morning, breakfast was still made on time. Lunch the next day was perfect - even made the ice cream that... More

I used to use The Throckmorton regularly when it was run by Antoinette and Tom. They sold excellent food and the service was terrific. When they moved to France some years ago the quality of everything reduced to the point where I would not go back. Then I met a friend recently who told me that things had improved and... More

The room was small; had a double bed; free coffee, wifi etc. But is was dirty a tired. I was drawn to a note on the room door telling me that modernisation had been complete in... More

I was attending a re-enactment with my son at nearby Spernal, these events are a weekend of camping in a muddy field (given the typical English June weather) with about 1000 other people, whilst it can be fun a comfy bed and a hot bath at the end of a day lugging a spear and a shield around is pretty...
