Visited here for the first time in December with a friend, what a lovely atmosphere! The pie was delicious and a massive portion, i tried very hard to finish it as it was so tasty but fullness defeated me :-) . Very busy pub with great atmosphere and tasty pies, thank you.

My husband and I went to the Thorn Tree for his birthday dinner, which we considered lucky that it was on a Wednesday and coincided with the highly rated 'Pie Night' at the Thorn Tree. Apparently, on occasion, it is substituted for Curry Night. Although a little disappointed, we got over it as we dug into the generous portions of... More

I've eaten here many times over recent years, mainly at lunchtime, but have also experienced the epic pie night, and have never been disappointed. Pat's food is excellent and portions are legendary, you have been warned! There is nothing more satisfying than Pat's bacon and Brie bloomer sandwich and potato wedges, especially if the weather is kind and you can... More

Works lunch, 7 dined, all had sandwiches on bloomer bread. Prawn, bacon and Brie, ham and cheese and onion were chosen, with chips. Service was great, food was fantastic. Well worth a visit, shame we don't live nearer :)

We chose The Thorn Tree for our Sunday dinner based on TripAdvisor recommendations. I telephoned on Saturday to reserve a table, but the pub only reserve food not tables and only do 20 or so meals from 5pm. That suited us fine because we had plans for the day and wanted a latish lunch. We were advised to get there... More
