13 of us had dinner here on Friday evening. They swapped our booking from Saturday to Friday last minute which was very helpful. The food was good pub food, everything was hot and the service was excellent, despite our large group. We had a section almost to ourselves too. It's not fine dining but it's better than average pub grub.... More

We found this lovely pub a few years ago while on holiday. Last year we were rather disappointed with the service and meal. We decided to give it another try this year, if no good we wouldn't go again. We booked a table but as it was a lovely evening asked if we could sit outside, this was no problem... More

We came here for my friend's birthday, there were 9 of us and our orders were all correct and delicious. The staff were absolutely amazing and really lovely. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed their food. This was our second visit and won't be our last!

Attended for a family birthday. It was fantastic. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and made us all feel extremely welcome. Food was plentiful and hot. Some of our party ate from the menu, some from the carvery. The staff took the time to send those eating from the carvery before the guests who were eating from the main... More

Great service, staff very friendly. Food good. Nothing too big to ask of them to do. Nice atmosphere. Outside sitting nicely done too. Would visit again, if in that area.

Good presentation of poor quality cooked food along with appalling service. We won't be back. There are far better Pub restaurants in the area than the Thatched Inn.
