Welcome to the Reservoir Inn

The Reservoir Inn is a warm friendly pub serving delicious food in the charming village of Thornton, on the edge of the National Forest, and just a stone's throw from the circular reservoir walk around the beautiful Thornton Reservoir.

Owners Alan Morgan and Steve Bazeley will always make sure a warm welcome awaits with truly hearty menus for refuelling pre/post reservoir walk, an excellent selection of beverages and a friendly welcoming team.

Originally The Bulls Head and also The Tipsy Fisherman, The Reservoir Inn has been re-branded in line with its ongoing support of Thornton Reservoir and many linked activities.
