What a wonderful place, fantastic decorations for Christmas which shed a warm glow around the restaurant. The waiting staff very observant but unobtrusive. Attention to detail and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be going again.

It was my 60th on 16th Dec. and my husband booked a meal in the evening. It was totally enjoyable and relaxed. Staff could not do enough for us and the restaurant was lovely. We had 3 courses and every dish was delicious. The homemade bread was amazing. I had pork and Apple terrine with ciabatta- super. Hubby had fish... More

We visited the Thatched Cottage after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor for our anniversary meal. The good reviews are all spot on. The service is excellent - welcoming and attentive. The restaurant is lovely, very romantic and charming. But best of all is the food. It's not cheap but well worth paying a little extra to experience a... More

Welcoming friendly smile and a offering of a drink, such a lovely first 30 seconds before the evening had even started. Absolutely beautiful food and the service was wonderful! Would definitely recommend and visit again soon!

Sunday lunch was very much enjoyed by myself, daughter and partner. A very good menue. A warm greeting by staff accompanied by a roaring open fire. The service and food were all faultless and good value for money. A lovely afternoon.

Ate at the Thatched Cottage with a large family group for a celebration meal; excellent value, attentive service, reasonable wines and, considering it was the Sunday lunch menu, very good food. Have had less impressive food in Michelin-starred restaurants so we were very satisfied. As one of the party said, "there are lots of touristy restaurants in the area so... More

If you are looking for a fine dining experience then this will be right up your street...the restaurant itself is quite small and set in a proper cottage...it is very intimate and cosy and feels like you are in someone's front room. We were incredibly lucky to have the whole restaurant to ourselves as it was midweek...We had excellent customer... More
