“Lively karaoke night”
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.

Lovely food and very lively, we didn’t realise but we had booked a table on a karaoke night so it wasn’t the quiet relaxing evening we expected but we had a great time. Food was reasonably priced and very well presented

The menu is small and simple but the dishes are very tasty and the portions are generous.
The bar was packed with drinkers which is a great thing to see in an age where pubs seem to be aimed solely at diners.
Quality of food puts some of the bigger and better known pubs in the area to shame!

We were attending a wedding nearby and stayed overnight on the Easter weekend. The room was lovely, the staff were all friendly and the breakfast was amazing. Highly recommended 😀

Absolutely fantastic meal. Had a Sunday roast and the food was amazing. Staff where very friendly and helpful. The manager hayley, she was always walking around making sure every table was ok and if there was anything she could do. I also noticed that hayley was not afraid to help out when it got busy taking orders from customers, bringing out food and taking empties back to the kitchen Was always happy to help and very polite and always had a smile. A great little village pub managed and staffed by pleasant and friendly people. I would recommend anyone go here for a superb meal.
