    Visited mid-afternoon on Fathers Day for Sunday Lunch, when they had a 2 or 3 course fixed menu. Good range of choices available on the menu and the food was very good. Excellent presentation of each choice and great quality - would certainly come again. Service was also very good - all the staff were very friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend. PS they also have a good loyalty scheme in place to encourage repeat visits.

    We went to The Throckmorton for a family meal for my daughters 16th birthday on Saturday . The service from the start was absolutely fantastic . 12 of us in total all with different meals which came out within seconds of one another , hot and absolutely delicious . Excellent value for money and highly recommend for any occasion.

    Still a reasonable place to go for breakfast. But unfortunately no where near where it was 2 plus years ago . The scrambled egg used to be excellent but these days very mediocre I'm afraid. My wife's fish was undercooked and had to be returned. Also you get much less than you used to get a couple of years ago. In our opinion the menu needs to be reinvented and quality raised a bit . In our opinion it used to be easily the best breakfast for miles but not really any more . It's a shame . Still decent but could be much better

    We enjoyed a very nice breakfast. The only criticism is that the service was slightly slow, but as our group were chatting it didn't bother us too much. The food was good and we were given pots of tea this time (last time we were only given cups of tea!). We will be back again soon!

    This was a birthday celebration meal The food was very good and the service attentive Unfortunately we decided to eat outside on the patio and our meal was spoiled by a very loud and annoying dog at an adjacent table. I know this is probably outside your control but possibly the wait staff could have suggested that the dog be removed as he/she was extremely disruptive with constant barking and nuisance

    The ThrockmortonResponded 4 days ago

    Glad you enjoyed you meal with us David, very sorry about your noisy Dog Neighbour! We understand that sometimes a loud dog can be a nuisance, however being dog friendly we do like to welcome our four legged friends. I will have a chat to the team regarding noisier dogs and asking the owners politely to settle them down, thanks again.

    The one thing that lets the food down is the quality of the chips, the use of steakhouse style frozen chips is not the best, there are many better options available.

    Very disappointing! Despite the number of tables - service was very slow and staff not attentive. Menu had changed and we were not impressed with the new offerings. Prices had increased dramatically. We have been to Throckmorton many times, but I don’t think that we will visit again in the foreseeable future.

    The waitress Kirsti was outstanding in her welcome and the care she took over us. The 2 course Sunday Lunch menu was excellent. The first course as a little slow but encouraged by Kirstie and the speed improved. The 'pink beef' was especially good as was the rest of the food and coffee. Throckmorton fills a gap left by non-dining at Coughton Court and is very nearby, although right turns out are a little hazardous
