The Thorold in Grantham

I am writing this review as one of the pub's 200 shareholders and member of the managing committee.

PLEASE NOTE: The Pub's phone number is 01400 251849

The Thorold (formerly The Thorold Arms) is a community-owned pub bought from a developer after it closed its doors in July 2015. It is a pub, restaurant and café in the Lincolnshire village of Marston just 6 miles North of Grantham and close to the A1.

The pub is a Free House with great quality cask ales. Our brewery of choice is Batemans who also supply us with ciders, keg beers, lagers and Guinness as well as a great range of soft drinks, mixers, wines and spirits. We also have regular guest ales.

A selection of locally sourced food is served through the café, bar and restaurant. The hours of service are displayed on the website.

We are family and dog-friendly and look forward to seeing you soon.
Come and visit our tranquil, traditional pub set in the heart of the Lincolnshire Countryside.

The pub was established around 1750 with this replacement constructed in about 1900, a commanding building in a none-too-inviting area, overlooking what in effect is a dual carriageway in part of a much-altered area, little for the better.
This was a bit of a scruffy place at the start of the decade with flyers in the windows. 'twas here that in 2014 that the One Mile End brewery, named after the pub's address, was established beneath the pub though has now moved to Tottenham; the pub was refurbished into what it is today. There are large plain glass picture windows with some vestigial etched glasswork to the entrances, hinting at what may once have been. The floor is modern pale wood with the overall colour scheme in pale grey, with a white ceiling sporting egg and dart cornicing with field panelling - it wouldn't look out of place in a grand house. Furniture is mainly large, scrubbed pine tables, some tables fashioned from old sewing machine treadles. Chairs are conventional and there's an orange suede banquette to the southern wall. The bar back is modern as is the pale pine bar. There are three cast iron structural columns with Corinthian capitals painted gold, though the shafts have been painted with weird fern fronds in varying blue hues. Lighting comes from chandeliers and sconce lights with five metal shaded lamps hanging over the bar - the interior looked more appealing a good three years ago, judging from the images on Google. There is though a fine Truman Hanbury Buxton mirror to the rear, advertising their imperial stout; this was probably once a Truman's house. There's little in the way of décor apart from some framed One Mile End posters and old cast iron street signs, with additional entertainment coming from a stereo which was a bit loud, certainly with the bass turned up to the point where with one speaker behind me, it was making my neck ache; there's further entertainment in the form of a quiz which takes place upstairs and oddly on a Thursday. Customers were a mixed bunch and there was a good ambience in here, a bit like being in a pub during normal times. It was noted that the lavs were modern with two cubicles.
Staff were friendly and helpful, dishing up just three ales with one strangely coming from the East London Brewery, Foundation bitter at a very reasonable £4.50 and very good it was too; a manly pint indeed. The two other ales were One Mile End's Juicy New England IPA and Boom Boom.
This is on balance a good pub. It's a shame that the interior has undergone so much alteration, but it makes for a very good stop if in the area.

On Sunday, March 15, about a week after the first case of the novel coronavirus was reported in Puerto Rico, Governor Wanda Vázquez announced a two-week lockdown. Everything but grocery stores and pharmacies would close, starting at 6 p.m. The announcement came without much time for planning, without much warning, ....
