Excellent Pub Grub

The Thached inn was a traditional pub with a traditional pub menu. The food was well presented, good value and good portions. The fish pie was excellent and the cherry pie and clotted cream fabulous. The two waiters were attentive, helpful and very friendly.

We went for an evening meal on a weekday whilst on holiday in Devon. Food was delicious and served very quickly. I liked the little rooms which made it cosy. Friendly and efficient staff. Recommend a visit if you are in the area.

We had our evening wedding reception at the thatched inn on 4th April 2015. A beautiful little chocolate box thatched pub in abbotsham. Mark organised the evening event and it was absolutely amazing. The hot buffet that we wanted was amazing and all set out with great detail and finess. The food was outstanding. The staff were exceptional and so... More

I recently spent a week in Devon with my family and our dog and visitted the thatched inn as I'd seen it listed as a dog friendly pub. Dogs are listed as welcomed in the bar area where the full restuarant menu is also available. On arrival we ordered our drinks and our dog was also treated to a few... More

Thank you for a lovely meal. The food was done to a very high standard. The atmosphere was very nice and a very warm welcome. The waiter was extremely good and knew his job very well. He is an asset to your team.

After a fabulous meal last year we were looking forward to going back to The Thatched Inn for dinner. We were very disappointed with our meals particularly the burgers we had. The patties were very salty and had the texture and flavour of a value burger from a supermarket. The staff seemed very rushed and the food took a while... More

My fiancée and I were visiting bideford for a wedding venue viewing and decided to eat out on the evening; we booked in advance based on reviews. We were both pleasantly surprised; the pub is in a nice village location and was quite busy as you would expect for a bank holiday. We were seated promptly in the conservatory room.... More

Phoned last minute for a table for 5 on good Friday whilst visiting a cousin in the area. We arrived at about 1.15pm and were served drinks and shown to our table, in a busy restaurant, very quickly. Whilst we were waiting the waitress explained there was about an hour wait for food after our initial disappointment we decided to... More
