Lovely meal

We've visited The Thatched Tavern twice, once for lunch and once for an evening meal. The food was lovely on both visits and the garden area is great on a sunny day. Nice selection of beer and cider and the staff are good. The surroundings are great, just up from the beach and down a quiet... read more

My dish was not a nut roast at all. It was a frittata....nothing like a nut roast. I ate it as it was ok. When my friends gently... More

Good pub food in a pleasant setting. Lovely pub. Good value food. Odd smell of cheese or other dairy product which drove us into the garden to eat

If you are paying that kind of money you expect a lot more then average! 3 stars for the staff which... More

We had a tough challenge. We needed to take the in-laws for a meal. They are very hard to please, so we chose the Tavern as we were pretty sure they would not let us down. It was an absolute success, try as hard as they might, they could not find a single thing to complain about and had to... More
