WOW. I organised a retirement dinner for my husband and approached the Thatched Cottaged after a recommendation from a friend. From beginning to end the the staff were fantastic nothing was ever too much trouble. The evening itself was perfect the staff, food and service were all incredible. We can't wait to go back. Thank you Thatched Cottage

I can not remember the last time I attended a formal dinner, and received such amazing food and outstanding service. All courses where delivered in a timely manner and everything was piping hot. Amazing as there were over 30 of us dining. The waiting staff just seemed to materialize with the food and disappear with the finished crockery. Even though... More

The service is excellent with all staff being attentive, trained and welcoming. The cottage is a beautiful place to visit and I really enjoyed sitting in the garden after the meal. The food is delicious and well cooked. I went for my dad's birthday and I recommend it for all celebrations. Despite being small, the service, food and atmosphere make... More

Everything was wonderfully presented and served and tasted delicious. It is a fairly small intimate restaurant and was quite busy on the night I dined; with the quality of food I would suggest that booking is... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service was excellent, the food was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. If I was being over critical I would say, the sauce with my liver main course was a little rich. This was the best meal that we have enjoyed in Devon to date. We... More

From when we first arrived we had a lovely warm welcome and relaxed drinks in the bar area. The food was just amazing with a calamari starter for my husband and dad the best they have tasted since a trip to Greece, the main meals were just as excellent as were the desserts. Would highly recommend a visit and we... More
