Book in advance!

A lovely pub restaurant but to avoid disappointment phone up and book a table. Choice of food was great. Specials available. Kids menu too. Portions were huge for the kids! Service was excellent - friendly and attentive. Parking is limited so you may need to park on the road.

The Thatched Inn looks beautiful from outside and also has some attractive gardens. However, that, for us, was where the good experience ended. It seems to be a pub that is also trying to fit a restaurant in to every available free space. On entry we were asked to go to the bar and order drinks after which someone would... More

8 adults dined on a Sunday in August to celebrate my mothers birthday. Pursuing a "fish and chips" request from some of the diners, we loosely mentioned this when making the booking - without full commitment. Fish and chips were chosen by all 8 participants in the end - even though it was not on the menu - with various... More

We had several evening meals here, service and food were absolutely superb! The staff were really helpful ( we have a large family!) and accommodating. Well worth a visit!

We love it here, we have had several evening meals here and a few family suprise birthday meals too. The staff are very accommodating. Food is always lovely, have never had a bad word to say about any meal I've had here. Highly recommended.

It was a very wet Sunday, and we'd been recommended this pub. Although we didn't have e recommendation , we were welcomed and made to feel they would try to find a table, which they did. The pub has had a complete makeover to a high standard; everything looks new and smart. The chef, Barry, is a really friendly and... More

Lovely pub and the food is great. Dogs are welcome in the bar and outside eating area. Good place for a family and or a group outing as they have just expanded the back of the restaurant which is lovely to sit and eat in. Food wise, you will have a good choice and the prices are midrange. Kids menu... More

Was holidaying near this restaurant and heard good things so decided to give it a go. Called the restaurant to check they served food all day which they confirmed, unfortunately the lunchtime menu is limited compared to the evening menu. My wife had steak , our daughter had fish and chips and I had crab salad, all were very good... More

You need to book this one as it is very popular. The restaurant is made up of several small dining rooms, as our booking was for a party of 8 we had a room to ourselves. The food was very good and very generous portions including starters, no rooms for desert ;-). The waiting staff were excellent and the price... More
