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

I'm sure everyone has already said how great this pub is, we loved it. Just wished we had eaten here too. We had booked a table where we were staying Duke of Wellington, see separate review, (sorry I forget to say that was a nice pub, very cosy with good views and nice place to sit outside).
