We are fortunate at Thornton Lodge to have the original and beautifully panelled dining room with its' amazing fireplace where breakfast is served each morning between 8.30am and 9.15am. Please see the seperate page detailing what is available for breakfast.

We are also most fortunate in the number of good quality pubs nearby that serve food on an evening. It's worth remembering that if you are going out for a special meal that you've booked ahead of your stay and want a taxi (or indeed just decide you want a taxi) they need to be booked in advance so here are the numbers: Peacocks - 07969491251 -01969 650212/650465. Steve 07959662785 -01969 625635. Streetwise (Nobby) 07919911677. Please do take notice of this advice if you might want a taxi as some guests have been upset when they couldn't organise one last minute.

I am always happy to make suggestions for places to eat and to book tables if required. The Wensleydale Heifer generally needs to be booked in advance of arrival owing to it's popularity as one of Britains premier seafood restaurants.
