We ate here early in the evening, so the pub was very quiet and did rather lack atmosphere. My daughters aged 22 and 18 were both asked for their ID. The only problem I had with this, was that the barman who asked for their ID looked younger than them! The main course was nice but the deserts were amazing!... More

I went here for an evening meal with some work friends, first time i had been to the thatched cottage and it was lovely, welcoming and cosy. Staff lovely and the food was to die for. Going back soon with family, would really reccomend this pub.

Dear Ralphiehares, thank you for your feedback, I would very much appreciate a personal discussion with yourself if you would be so kind, as I am perplexed by your comments. I personally had the Sunday Roast this week and found the potatoes to be perfectly cooked, veg and meat etc. But also we do not have mustard in sachets, and... More

the good: nice staff, early check in, comfy beds, nice and warm, good breakfasts, after hours entry, on top of a decent pub The not so good: old bathrooms and not particularly clever use of space, a bit run down in places, 'superior' room not worth it (although didn't cost much more).

Stopped here on a Friday night after being in Somerset on business. Very impressed with the service, how clean & tidy the room was. The bathroom & sheets were of the expected standard. Also the breakfast the following morning was more than adequate. Will stop here again.

Fell upon this place by accident but will definitely go back again. The food is very tasty and served in fairly large portions. Washed down with a Thatchers Gold from the bar and an after meal drink by the log fire makes a great evening. The level of service is in line with that of a very good hotel.

Beautifully decorated very clean and very friendly and so helpful. Some nice art work in lower dinning room, worth a look. Plus great open fire, very nice touch. The meal was outstanding, very generous portions, real value for money. I had Christmas dinner, my friends had the beef! WOW. Lovely presentation I can't recommend enough. Cooked to perfection, not over... More

Nine of us (including two small children) enjoyed a Sunday lunch here. Lovely atmosphere and food. Will certainly return. However the portion sizes were far too large ! None of us were able to finish our meals. I hate wasting really good food.
