A lovely small restaurant with excellent service. The menu is small, but should cater for a variety of tastes and I am lead to believe changed quite often. The food is presented like art work (which normally means you get very little) but is still a generous enough portion so that you feel you have been fed. The third time... More

We have been to the Thatch many times, as a couple, with friends and I have even arranged company Christmas parties here. They never disappoint. The service and food is absolutely superb every single time. It's simply the best!

Awesome service, David made us feel very special and then the food was brilliant. Half the menu has * next to menu choices, which is £25 for three courses. My fiancé says it's the best main she has ever had (trio of pork) my chicken was great too. I can't praise it highly enough, well done everyone there.

Staying in a local hotel with my wife, unusually accompanying me on a business trip. After evenings of a fairly limited menu at the hotel I was looking for something special on our last night, so of course I went to trip advisor and thought that the reviews looked promising. It was early evening on a lovely sunny day, as... More

We are travelling with our 8 yr old daughter so really weren't sure that fine dining was a good idea, however we called in to enquire about a reservation and received a very friendly and warm welcome. Our daughter was a bit hesitant about the menu and the owner immediately asked her what type of good she liked and offered... More

We visited the Thatched Cottage on the 15th July. We booked based on the reviews on Trip Advisor as we were looking for somewhere special to celebrate our nephew's 21st birthday whilst on holiday. From start to finish the service was impeccable and the food presented beautifully and it tasted divine. All of the staff are to be praised for... More

my mother in law always organises Sunday lunch for my wife's birthday. We were delighted with the food and service. Our lamb just melted in the mouth and both the starters and sweets were excellent too. The service is quite brilliant and we will return soon!
