Having visited for the first time the food was excellent but I feel it should be pointed out to customers that it is a 2course fixed price no matter what you have it made our main meal expensive

Having been recommended this restaurant we decided to give it a try. We called in for Sunday lunch on the off chance there'd be a table available. We were given a lovely welcome and were offered a drink while we waited for a table. The really polite staff brought us the menu to muse over. Orders taken we were shown... More

Only latterly has The Thatch started to cause interest amongst the area's serious foodies. A succession of failed ownerships has created a chintzy 'tea room' perception not helped by the coy name and exterior. Now,as soon as you walk in this is countered by an air of welcoming professionalism,confirmed by the short well chosen menu. Two and three course fixed... More

I thought it was a really average meal and over priced. The steaks we had were very fatty and so was the lamb. The service seemed very rushed and we didn't get much time in between courses. I did think the restaurant lacked atmosphere.

We have been lucky to have been taken to the Thatches a couple of times by close relations and I have to state that it has a most relaxing atmosphere and from my experinces,the food they serve cannot be bettered anywhere. The minute you enter the Thatches you'r made to feel important and this feeling is carried on throughout the... More

Apart from being a very good restaurant the Thatch offers a small number of rooms available at very reasonable prices. The rooms are reasonably sized with en-suite. The beds are large size and comfortable. The rooms are clean with the usual facilities (T.V. and tea/coffee) The rooms perhaps are a little tired but all guests are made very welcome by... More

Visited today to celebrate a family birthday. We arrived a little early but were greated by the host and asked if we would like to go straight through to our table. We were shown thorough to the lovely garden room at the back of the main restaurant and were swiftly served with drinks while we perused the menus. The menus... More

We attended this lovely thatched restaurant to celebrate an 80th birthday. The staff had decorated the walls with 80th banners for us. We had a drink outside in the beautiful gardens the waitress came outside and took our order. Snow white linen tablecloths and napkins and shining glasses and cutlery adorned the table. The food came and it was delicious,... More

We had a table for 4 at 8pm on a Saturday night and thought it was really good value for money. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the area where we had pre dinner drinks. It was really good service and we didn't have to wait long for the food. We all enjoyed our starters but I was a little... More
