I've been several times now both with mates and kids. It's been between 13:00-15:00 and always plenty of seats. Service good and no complaints about the food or drink. Good offer on the 2 4 1 which I tend to get. Overall it's worth a visit.

3 friends arrived just before 7.30 ( I knew they stopped serving food at 8pm). Asked for a table and was told when they checked with the chef that he was busy so they wouldn't give us a table. Never been refused a table at any restaurant before because they couldnt be bothered so will definitely not be going back,... More

We go here about once a month. The food and service is always good and there are specials and a meal deal most days. The chicken of the day is usually a good option and the Sunday roasts are also great. Prosecco on draft at a reasonable price is quite rare so Thornberries works for me!

Eat here quiet a bit with friends for lunch ,it is always nice.They do freshly prepared pub snacks or larger meals. Service can be a bit slow at times as there only ever seems to be one person serving ,sometimes two. Hot roast beef sandwiches are always nice ! I'm boring and nearly always have that ! The place is... More

We were looking for a quick lunch and not expecting a great meal. The salmon salad and brunch special, poached eggs on spinach, were excellent. The waiting time was short and the staff pleasant and professional.

We've been coming here,on and off, for a few years now. Last year it went terrible ,but with a reformed menu and perhaps a new chef , the food is now very good again. Pleasant staff and good bar choices. However, it desperately needs some investment in the soft furnishings department. The carpet is dated and threadbare, likewise the armchairs.... More

This place need some serious attention! The tables are sticky, the carpets threadbare in places, no locks on the toilets and just generally looks so tired. The food is ok, staff could do with some training in customer service and in the things they are serving (when we asked for a glass of Shiraz, we were asked whether we wanted... More
