Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a fab meal, with a varied menu choice, reasonably priced and good portion sizes. We were a group of 12 and provided pre orders. Great communication with Rachael and nothing no much trouble. Everyone commented how lovely the food was with good service. Will definitely be back.

We stayed overnight as had a wedding in the area. Everyone was so helpful especially the next day when I had left my lights on and needed a jump start. Can't promote the place enough, really lovely place and people.

We have just got home from a 2 night stay at The Thorold as we were attending a wedding locally. We had a lovely stay, we had dinner the first evening and breakfasts both days and the food was really nice each time. Rachael and the rest of the team really looked after us and made us feel very welcome. Our room was immaculate, well decorated and clean (as was the whole pub) We hope to be able to stay again

What a Gem this is! We were staying at the Olde Barn Hotel nearby, and booked a meal here just for a change. What a Find! It is an outstanding local community owned pub, most of whom appeared to to be there on the Friday night we visited! An excellent selection on draught, and a wide range of spirits. Very reasonably priced at £4.30 a pint. The food was also reasonably priced, generous portions, and delicious. They obviously have an excellent chef. This is a must visit for any visitor to the area.

We stayed for two nights as we were in Marston for a wedding and The Thorold was an absolutely perfect choice in every respect. We were warmly welcomed and then shown to our room. It was beautifully furnished, immaculate and very comfortable. The bar had a good choice of beers, lager and a whole host of other alcoholic drinks. We bought some and sat outside in the well-kept garden under a parasol. We had dinner on our first night comprising a medium-rare steak and fish and chips. Both were cooked to perfection. The breakfasts were huge and again, well-presented and cooked perfectly. Finally, the staff.....They were all so friendly especially Alex, Gemma and Joe. The locals were very friendly and welcoming too.

Very tasty Sunday roast (pork loin). Well presented with plenty of well prepared and cooked veg. Pleasant, recently decorated surroundings. In hindsight, ordering desserts was definitely a case of overindulgence! We were very pleasantly 'stuffed'. This community owned, friendly pub won't disappoint.

Very clean, good re- furnished pub, staff very helpful, friendly and polite. Best fish and chips we’ve had in a long time and hot, cleanliness second to none, absolutely will go again next time we are local, recommend to everyone. Bonus is little shop on side - brilliant idea.

Very unwelcoming bar staff on arrival, chaotic till, ordered dessert which took 45 minutes to arrive, only to be given the dessert as we left, no offer of a refund (not that we expected it), food wasn't great either and despite making eye contact with the waitress on many occasions, she didn't twig we may want something. We won't be back, sorry 🌈😉😓

Food superb, service exemplary, prices very good. The foiod was cooked to order. Meats, well cooked, tender and succulent. Veg just as it should be - al dente. Half way through we were asked if we would like more, which we did and which we got. Puddings very good. Great service and given the current difficult times, the prices were very good.

The warm welcome, delightful atmosphere and freshly cooked food was all fantastic. This is a local village pub that deserves support and is a great stop off point too if travelling in the area. We had the fresh steak and ale pie and chips and it was so fresh it literally was put in the oven when we ordered it. Had to wait 40 minutes for it but the wait was well rewarded. Definitely recommend this super pub

Walked through village on Monday (Queen’s funeral) to find pub open showing the funeral and offering free cake. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely return if in area again.
