A warm and welcoming pub/restaurant. They were locking up when we arrived at 1440 but immediately opened back up and served us our drinks. Went back a few days later for lunch and the food was superb, both hot and cold dishes.

The food was okay, pub grub, overpriced for what it was but the service was disgraceful. When asked if we wanted a dessert the waiter went away and we could hear that foul language as we unfortunately were keeping them at work. We decided to leave as we wouldn't give them anymore of our time or money

My wife and i were staying on Exmoor and arranged to meet some friends who live in Cornwall and decided on the Thatched Inn as it was equidistant for all of us. What a brilliant choice. The menu was very good but when we saw the carvery we were unanimous in our choice. The food was exceptional, the service was... More

My children and sister took me here for my 70th birthday, what a lovely treat. The food and service was excellent and I even got a kiss (twice) from the really attentive waiter, nothing was too much trouble and he really made this old fogey's night.

We were taken to this pub for a meal by our daughter and son in law as a treat for my husbands 70th birthday. The service was excellent. My granddaughters were made very welcome too. The food was also excellent. Lovely atmosphere and very warm and cosy on this cold night. We live in wales but often visit our daughter... More

We were looking for somewhere to take my parents for a meal as they were visiting us for the weekend. Read some reviews before booking and decided to book. The staff were extremely warm and welcoming, our waiter had obviously done his research on the food as he gave recommendations and knew everything about the food on the menu. Food... More

We have eaten here several times and also introduced others to this place. Everyone loves it as much as we do. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and the food is always excellent. We often come here for lunch as we live not too far away. Try the pavlova (when on the menu), not like any other I have... More
