Great location

Fiona and her team once again helped us to celebrate a family occasion in style. This was a large group of 18 that they accommodated well giving us ample space to celebrate. The food and service was great and a good time was had by all.

Very pleasant landlord, from London area and he said he would never go back & I don't blame him! Beautiful area, having travelled from London ourselves we... More

Having spent the day in Torquay we decided to find somewhere to eat on our way back to Dorset, luckily for us we discovered this delightful pub hidden a little off the beaten track, we received a very warm welcome from Fiona the landlady and although the restaurant was very busy she managed to fit us in, our table had...

I went for a meal here with my family of 16 people. The service was excellent, all the staff were very helpful and professional. The quality of the food was first class and the portion sizes were just right. We received our courses in a timely fashion and the atmosphere was perfect for our family celebration. This restaurant is tucked... More

We have tried to contact this reviewer directly to discuss the reasons for his comments, which of course the whole Thatched Tavern team are dismayed at, but of course, as yet have not received a reply and therefore we are unable to make a detailed response. However, on a lighter note Fiona may have often been likened to Barbara Windsor... More

We were away in the area for a few days and found this pub on the Internet and decided to give it a go. A little difficult to find but well worth the drive. Managed to get a table despite not booking. Welcome was excellent and we were made to feel at home immediately. Good couple of real ales and... More

This may have been one of the nicest meals I have ever eaten(Pork Medallions). I didn't stop to breathe so I could let anyone try it. If I were in private, I would have made love to it It was that nice.
