Friends meeting up in a pub


Run by two sisters, with help from the whole family, The Thornton Arms is a real family affair.
It's no wonder we appeal to young and old. The pub is split over three floors; the top bar is popular with an older audience, the middle floor is used for events and the ground floor for functions and as a dinning room. 
Horse races


There is no better place to enjoy all the major football and rugby matches, and horse racing. And with free WiFi you can follow the action and scores from around the country on a phone or tablet! Prefer to escape the sporting drama?
We have a room for everyone, a pretty beer garden even a lake and bridleway.
