I would NOT recommend this restaurant to ANYONE accustomed to quality customer service. Our waitress was extremely rude which appeared to be the culture of this establishment as the waiter on duty was also obnoxious & used fowl language well within earshot of the entire patio. Our party had ordered a full dinner with a selection of beverages from the bar menu. When the waitress brought us the wrong drink order for the second time & we requested an exchange of one beverage, she become belligerent & refused to rectify the mistake. At no time was our dining party angry or upset, we merely wanted a pint of beer. We then asked for our bill as both our server & her colleague were condescending & beyond rude. She then proceeded to ask us NEVER to return, claiming this was at the direction of the restaurant owner who was not present but apparently had been called to authorize a beverage exchange. At NO point, did the restaurant manager on duty, visit our table. Rest assured, we were more than happy to take our business elsewhere and had a wonderful experience at the Blue Cactus down the street which ALWAYS exemplifies excellence in client service!!
HORRIBLE SERVICE, OVERPRICED MENU...SPEND YOUR $$ ELSEWHERE!
Recently we tried the brunch menu at " The Thorn". As usual, the service was less than desired, but the food was very good. The menu is imaginative. I had a large omelette stuffed with lots of cheese, peppers and spicy sausage. The fried potatoes were well done, crisp and tasty. The meal came with lots of fresh fruit, a small salad, and interesting toast on the side. My understanding is that they have a great chef, but once again the meal was spoiled by poorly trained servers who chat loudly and incessantly amongst themselves and fail to monitor the needs of their guests. The floor manager, if he/she exists, either does not know how to run a well managed restaurant or doesn't care. Rating very good for food (quality and presentation), poor for service.
Overpriced pub-grub and horrible service from rude staff. Spend you $$ elsewhere.
