we live locally and thought we'd visit the restaurant for the first time. Although it was midweek the restaurant was already busy when we arrived (around 7pm) The meal and service was great, we will definitely be returning. The waiting staff were young but there seemed to be someone older present who was overseeing the service (I say older..he was over 25!)
Having eaten at the sister restaurant Lucca's (disappointing) I was pleasantly surprised by the Mistley Thorn.
