I've eaten here a couple of times, and have found the staff very welcoming and friendly. Service is pretty good and the food is traditional 'English'. The bar area, where you can also eat, is really comfortable with a fabulous blazing fire in winter and plenty of sofas and armchairs.

A group of us went on a Sunday lunchtime and when we arrived there were very few customers. Bar service was very poor - there was no one serving when I got to the bar. Eventually someone came to serve with no apology for being kept waiting and if they could have walked any slower, I'm sure they would have... More

I have eaten here three times in March as it is conveniently located to work. Compared to my previous experiences here I have to say I was disappointed. The food was okay yet nothing special. For me personally it's all about the service, and whilst some staff try, I did not feel there was enough consistently high quality, friendly customer... More

We arrived at 14:45 on a Sunday afternoon, having failed to find a free table for lunch at two other pubs that sunny day. The staff had no problem in allocating us a table but asked us to order before 15:00, when their kitchen would close. We selected the Goats Cheese and Salad with Balsamic Dressing (SP) for starters.

I went here for lunch with my dog walking friends. We had a dog friendly area put aside for us inside but we decided to dine outside as the weather was good. The menu is limited which is a good thing. I always worry when restaurants have 20 odd things on the menu - no one can do that many... More

We visited Throckmorton Arms using an amazon voucher . This meant it was was good value at £16 for a starter and main course for 2. Certainly wouldn't pay full price - potions small and over cooked. I had the chicken satay and tasted like it was an Iceland reheat! Side salad was just a few pieces of lettuce, no... More

Good Afternoon The menu is printed on A4 paper because it is changed daily to make best use of seasonal ingredients and to offer a varied choice. You always have a choice of 5 starters, 8 main courses & 5 desserts to choose from plus Steaks & specials . This offers some choice for everyone although we are more than... More

My wife and I have been using the Throckmorton Arms on a fairly regular basis for several years, with various family and friends. The service has always been good with friendly attentive staff and the food has always been nicely cooked and well presented. A Christmas day lunchtime spent there was excellent with a lovely atmosphere and is something we... More

Although located on the main road, this place still creates a cosy, secluded atmosphere for all its customers. We stopped by for a spot of lunch, and although the food was pretty basic - it filled a hole and made us able to continue our journey. Bar staff are friendly and non-intrusive, just like the locals. I'd recommend to anyone... More
