Thorn's Farm
Article date: 27 Sep 2012

Laurence Goodwin is the pub manager at the newly opened Thorn’s Farm, in Yate.

The pub was developed on the site of four former shop units in Yate Shopping Centre – itself built on land which was once part of Thorn’s Farm.

The 17th-century farmhouse was owned by the Thorners family up to 1784, followed by a succession of farmers, until it was demolished to make way for the new town. Farming had been a way of life in Yate for centuries.

The pub, which features a pavement café-style area to the front, has commissioned artwork, including sculptures by Jan Blake and Graeme Evelyn, as well as a fine art painting by Rose Sanderson.
