“Great find in grantham area”
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.

We were looking for somewhere to stay while visiting Belton Woods and I found this absolute gem. Clean, comfortable great location and value for money. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast on our stay which was both 5 * staff were friendly and made our stay one we will remember we would definitely recommend and hope to return in the future.

A fantastic place to eat and stay, we stayed the night and the room, shower was outstanding and friendly staff on hand to help. We had an amazing dinner last night with everything tasty and cooked to perfection. Really fantastic place and a community pub too!!!

Food here is amazing, we are not local but we eat here when we are karting at the local track, 3rd visit to The Thorald and it never disappoints. Lovely country pub, gives you that proper homely feel, on our last visit the curry was on the specials menu and it was lovely, bit disappointed it wasn't on the menu this time round, wouldn't usually order pork but thought I would have a change, it was delicious. My son likes his Steak and the home cooked chips are lush, compliments to the chef and the staff that make you feel welcome. Wish is was our local.

It wouldn't be a specials menu if it was the same every time - glad you found a good curry substitute! Many thanks for the kind words.
