Visited earlier this week-Tuesday evening. Waitressing staff were lovely and friendly, seated us immediately and so polite when delivering our meals. Food was Devine and fitted the special requirements I had asked for apart from the chips which were very standard unlike the last time we came. The only possible downfall I can have about this visit to this lovely... More

We have been coming to the Thornhill every Monday evening since 2012 - yes we are creatures of habit, but we also like good home cooked food! In all that time, we've never had a bad meal. The food is great value and there is plenty of choice. The staff are really friendly and can't do enough for you. Thank... More

Visited here on a Monday evening as it's my favourite restaurant and was my birthday. Booked a table for half six as grandparents don't like eating meals late in the evening. Waited about ten fifteen minutes for our orders to be taken and was then returned as they ran out of the beef lasagne which two of us ordered. We... More

We have been here a number of times, the food has always been good. Service is good too. It is a vast improvement on years ago. Lunch time meals are reasonable, but in the evening it is on the expensive side.
