Having been a resident of the Thornton area for over 20 years, we were glad to see the re-opening of this grand old hotel. The owners of the former "Beaches" in Barrie have taken over. We just went for lunch but we were not disappointed and the staff was very friendly and attentive.
The old pub at the back has not re-opened, yet anyway. It was a great place to go and have a drink while listening to local folk musicians jam.The sloping floor in there seems to be the issue. There is however a small bar area inside the front entrance that is nice to visit before your meal or even just go for a drink and some appetizers.Will definitely be going back for dinner.
