The Thorold goes from strength to strength under the leadership of Ed. Really enjoyed the Mexican night (a well-needed mid-week treat). Excellent food and service as always. Looking forward to the next visit.

Booked ahead for lunch after doing the local 5-mile walk. Not been before but will definitely be back. I had delicious sausage and mash with vegetables while my wife enjoyed a lovely thick gammon steak. Really tasty, well presented and excellent service. Highly recommended
