We had the privilege of staying a week at the Mistley Thorn. The accommodations were well done, with good attention paid to some of the finer points, like bedding, coffee, tea and toiletries.

One of our favorite stops for a lovely diner before we take the Ferry Harwich to Hoek of Holland. Because the Ferry leaves late, there is plenty of Time to enjoy an superb Meal. The Staff is very friendly and remembers you when you revisit.

We had a fabulous meal here. The food was fantastic and the service couldn't be better. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. They were not over attentive. We look forward to going back.

We stayed for 1 night on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast deal and were very impressed by the service, food, and bedroom itself. A warm, friendly welcome and great service throughout our stay. A comfortable, characterful and nicely decorated bedroom. And a delicious dinner and breakfast. Mistley itself is a great setting and we had a lovely view of the...

My Partner's son unexpected arrived on a Saturday, a vegan so where could we go for a nice lunch ? A quick phone call to the Mistley Thorn confirmed that they could rustle up a vegan dish for him. We arrived and he was presented with a proper menu of vegan dishes, two starters, two mains and I think three...

House guests suggested somewhere pleasant to repay festival hospitality. A countryside drive to the riverside village of Mistley through Manningtree was called for. An old friend the Mistley Thorn found us a table and we enjoyed a very pleasant luncheon with an emphasis on fish and crustacean dishes - a fitting finale to a very hectic week of Christmas and...

Unexpected in this location, (a long way from anywhere!) I wished we had longer to explore the area. Formerly a pub, it has been renovated with at least 6 bedrooms on two floors, over a great gastro bar, serving fashionable gins, cocktails and a great choice of wines, plus an open fire! Our bedroom was warm and fresh with en-suite...
