Pub Layout

There is one main bar to serve the customers but the open plan room is segmented into three distinct areas.  One is the locals, sports and darts, another is just for the pool table and the rest for social drinking and seating.  A lovely large beer garden with social area, sand pit and small car park to the front (space for four cars)

The Thornely trades as a local wet led pub.  Pub teams, Darts & Pool and real ales. Very much involved with the community and village.
