It is always a problem finding a restaurant that serves a good vegetarian meal but the Thornhill Arms comes out tops. From the moment we arrived we were met with a smile And a hello to the time of departure the staff were attentive. The food was plentiful and piping hot. Well worth another visit.

We went 17/2/17 and the service was excellent. From ordering drinks and dinner to clearing, checking everything was ok, we couldn't fault the service at all. I ordered fish cakes which were supposed to be gluten free. When they came, I had 2 different ones so I asked the waitress to check. No, only 1 of them was gf. The... More

We have always been happy to visit this local pub. My previous posts have raved about great food & great service. Tonight's experience was anything but. The staff don't seem as personal as previous visits. My Wife was served a veggie burger instead of the ordered chicken burger. I had finished my meal by the time her meal had arrived... More

It was very cold in the building. Staff rather brusque. I had steak and chips, but the steak seemed cold in the middle and chips were dry - it was not a very good meal at all.

Thought we would visit having not been for quite a while with friends. We arrived approx 20mins before our booking and they were busy, couple of large parties eating. Once we managed to get the attention of a member of staff we were seated straight away and drinks ordered. Waitress came to try to take order before we had even... More

A really nice country pub, the tables are well spaced out so not giving you that crammed feeling. The food is of a high quality with generous servings and the staff are friendly with great service. My wives sea bass was the best she has had any where in fact can't fault any of the food we had. So if... More

Food is good value and comes quickly. But blimey! cold and draughty with surly waitress; was told by her "what do you expect it's an old building" This attitude means of course that we won't come back.

We went as a family and tried the carvery and were all impressed. We tried different meats and all were good, but it was the veggies and trimmings that we particularly liked, such as the bubbling hot cauliflower cheese and the excellent Yorkshire puddings. Good gravy too. The service was very friendly and we thought it was good value -... More

Such a wonderful local pub. Food is absolutely scrumptious with service second the none. The management are the warmest, kind, caring and considerate people I have come across and the family run team always go the extra mile to accommodate! Much is to be said for the sister pub The Sondes arm in Rockingham. Northamptonshire is very lucky to have... More
