“An absolute gem”
Review of The Thorold

The Thorold
Ranked #1 of 3 Restaurants in Marston
Price range: £5 - £30
Description: The Thorold is newly refurbished after a long period of closure. Under community ownership and professionally managed, it offers a delightful, rural welcome to all. On the corner of Main Street and School Lane in the Lincolnshire village of Marston, it is easily accessible - just 7 miles from Grantham, 12 from Newark, and a mile east of the A1. It is the community focus of the village and is a pub with rooms, café, restaurant, and shop. A Free House, The Thorold offers cask ales from Bateman’s Brewery, varying guest beers, a range of lagers, cider, other beers, and a great selection of wines, spirits, and soft drinks. The menu is tasty and local, with meals to suit all appetites. The ethos is relaxed and family-friendly, with well-behaved dogs welcome. There is a beer garden with a lawn and plenty of outside tables and seating. The pub has level access throughout from the garden door and car park. Future development will provide full ground floor wheelchair accessibility.

The staff were absolutely amazing. All of them could not do enough for you. The room was clean and really comfortable. Breakfast was brilliant and the location is lovely.

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.
