I recently wrote a bad review for this place... how wrong I was. After returning today I wish I could go back and delete my review from before. Lucy served my mother and me. She was spot on! Attentive, friendly, smiley...The perfect waitress! Also the manageress was brilliant and very friendly. All the guests were smiley and happy and everyone... More

A last minute booking for a night in Stratford; loved it from arrival 'till departure. The building is in the process of being refurbished, the ground floor restaurant/bar area having been completed. We found the food of a good quality and the bar well stocked with draught beers and a good selection of wines. I would say it was a... More

We called here by chance and had a lovely lunch. Portions are quite big and wholesome.The place is superb. Do try it. You will not be disappointed. Newly refurbished and smart. Roadside location on the way to Studley.

We stayed here for one night whilst at a friends wedding close by. The owners or owner is trying to turn this place around by refurbishing it. The pub is really modern and the patio is nearly finished around the back of the property. They say the rooms will be refurbished in 2015, these rooms are crying out for refurbishment... More

I visited the Throckmorton on two occasions recently - once at lunchtime and the other early evening. And must confess I was very impressed with both visits. The lunchtime visit representing great value too. The new owners seem to have worked very hard on the bar and restaurant areas of the hotel and I do feel that they are trying... More

Had a wonderful time staying over Easter weekend. Huge bed. Lovely staff. Wonderful food. Very reasonable prices. Bus stops right outside for Stratford or Evesham. What more could you want. Booked again for next month.

Have been previously with family and very impressed so this was my second experience and pleased its well worth a visit. The food and service were excellent. The staff were attentive but not in your face. The meal was amazing - presentation and quality excellent. Very enjoyable experience look forward to going again.

We have driven past here many times en route to evesham down the a435. It has been recently renovated so we thought we'd check in after spotting a deal on late rooms. It was our wedding anniversary so we booked in for a fantastic £38 for b & b a night before new years. After eating at a couple of... More

Dave A, Owner at The Throckmorton, responded to this review

Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed your stay - although probably worth mentioning for other readers that this was an extremely low rate due to the fact that while downstairs we were very busy over the Christmas/New years period the room were not so. The rooms are due a revamp in 2015 but in the interim we hope our... More
